657TQ marine ship wiring cable type is non-armored cable, which is suitable for fixed installation on shipboard and marine application.

657TQ cable is tinned stranded copper wire conductor, EPR insulation and halogen-free SW4 sheathed marine ship cable.

658TQ cable type is an excellent choice for fixed installation on shipboard and offshore application, drilling rigs, and platforms.

The BS6883 cable should be installed where there is no mechanical damage.

Moreover, fire resistant cable type BS7917 standard is also available.

Honest cable uses mica tape as a fire barrier over the tinned copper conductor.

Mica is a natural material that has excellent resistance to fire and extreme temperatures.

It also acts as insulation at elevated temperatures to the conductor.

The combination of these properties makes mica tape very fire resistant, and it is used in ship wiring cable to comply with the requirements of fire resistant cable IEC 60331.
