ATEX approved nylon-based system

20 September 2010

With nylon systems revolutionising cable protection in a number of industries, the flexible but durable qualities of PMA’s polyamide products present a range of benefits, including a significantly easier installation.

Nylon presented a problem when it came to being used in hazardous environments, due to a standard nylon’s trait of building up a static charge in chemically reactive environments or when fine particles are present in the air.

PMA has developed a specifically modified, electrical discharging material, the Ex-system range therefore will not act as an ignition source. With a range of fittings that can go from flexible to solid steel, it’s ideal for going around corners, can be adapted to suit any application and is suitable for use in dusty environments.

Tony Hollands, national sales manager of Swiss cable manufacturer PMA-UK said: "The system technology is based on the PMA protection system for highest requirements proven for more than thirty years. The new range means our products can be used across an even broader range of applications – ideal for use in breweries where hops could cause ignition and places where potentially hazardous environments exist such as refineries, power stations, paint shops and petrol stations."
