Silicones: Helping light the way to safety

When a fire starts in a building, silicones can help keep occupants and rescue workers safer.

Specially formulated silicone elastomers insulate and protect the electric cables that deliver power to fire alarms, emergency exit lights, and other emergency back-up systems. The silicone elastomer improves the fire-, heat-, moisture-, and corrosion-resistance of the wiring. This keeps critical safety systems operating longer during a fire, giving people more time to exit a burning building safely.

The silicone also reduces exposure to smoke and toxic fumes generated by degrading wiring.

It is easy to see why the use of silicone-protected safety cables is expanding – not only in high-rise office buildings, but also in public places like railway stations, theaters, and airports.
