SX-0606 is a highly flexible, low smoke and fume sheathing compound focused on offshore Oil & Gas industry installations, marine and shipboard, and related industrial cabling systems. SX-0606 was developed to answer customer needs for a moisture cure solution to manufacture cables to meet the NEK606 standard. In enclosed environments such as those in shipboard, offshore (OPG) marine installations, SX-0606’s zero halogen content, low-smoke, fume and fire retardant properties contribute to crew and passenger safety. SX-0606 is also suitable for use in heavy industrial applications and hostile environments where abrasion resistance is required.

Paired with flexible SX-554 EPR insulation and high LOI bedding compound, SX-0606 sheathed cables meet the highest fire retardant and oil resistance performance requirements while exhibiting rubber like flexibility and excellent cable surface finish. SX-0606 HFFR compound is currently available in pre-colored black to meet UV resistance requirements. It is also available in natural and pre-colored format subject to customer preference.
