At the IWCS International Cable & Connectivity Symposium, PolyOne announced availability of the new Geon™ Plenstar™ series of fire-resistant, plenum cable jacketing.
Answering the market need for flame retardance and low smoke performance, the Plenstar series includes five grades of cable jacketing materials. All meet UL approvals for plenum applications and provide the robust physical properties required for telecommunications cables.
“The Geon brand has a long history of supplying vinyl solutions in the wire and cable industry,” said Jim Mattey, global marketing director, Performance Products and Solutions, at PolyOne. “We are excited to provide multiple grades of plenum materials supported by our unsurpassed regulatory, processing and material science expertise.”
Addressable applications for the Plenstar series are Cat 3 to Cat 6 multi-conductor cables with a 75°C UL temperature rating, passing UL 444. Customization is possible for modified performance enhancements as needed, and custom colors can be developed as well.
