Properties of cable sheathing materials

The LSZH rating is concerned with the behaviour of thermoplastic materials in the event of fire, with the flammability or flame resistance of the sheathing material of transmission cables. Low Smoke means that the cable material produces only little smoke in case of fire, and Zero Halogen means that it is halogen-free. In case of fire, such a cable material will not release corrosive or caustic acids.
