Footnotes:

  1. The density and hardness will be fixed when we get the requirements from each customer
  2. The property can be adjusted to be higher than the value in the standard if customer requires
  3. Lead-based grades are available upon request
  4. We have flame-retardant grades for fire-resistant cables according to IEC 60332 standard
  5. Phthalate-free grades or other standards are available upon request
