Ensure cable integrity and safety

Insulate. Protect. Resist fire and flame.
When you need to keep the electricity flowing, you can depend on the proven insulating and protective power of  XIAMETER® brand silicone elastomers from Dow Corning.

Silicone elastomers have inherently good electrical insulating qualities and are nonconductive by nature. You can use them to:

  • Protect electrical wires and cables from a wide range of operating conditions and fire emergency challenges, including searing heat and freezing cold, corrosion, moisture, oil, ozone, and flame
  • Improve overall cable integrity and cable safety
  • Help safeguard the performance of electrical wires and cables used in conjunction with fire alarms and fire emergency back-up systems
  • Reduce exposure to smoke and toxic and corrosive fumes caused by degrading wires in the event of a fire
  • Prevent shorts, flashovers, circuit failures, and shutdowns

Because they are so resistant to environmental stress, XIAMETER silicone elastomers maintain their insulation properties longer than other materials. This can extend the service life of your electrical wire, cable, circuits, and systems.

Resistance to fire, flames, smoke, and fumes
Silicone elastomers are better able to protect sensitive wires and circuits from heat, fire, and flame than thermal plastics and organic elastomers and can be custom compounded to meet a wide range of fire-resistant cable, flame-resistant cable, low-smoke cable, and low-toxicity cable, and low-corrosivity cable requirements.
