TOXFREE® ZH RZ1-K (AS) CABLE FAQS

What does RZ1-K stand for you?

Each cable has a standardised designation. The letters and numbers refer to the cable outer sheaths, other outer sheaths, the conductor class, the rated voltage and the final composition of the cable. In the case of RZ1-K, the letters stand for:
Insulation:

R : Cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE).

Outer sheath:
Z1: Halogen Free polyolefin outer sheath.

Conductor:
-K : Cooper flexible conductor (class 5) for fixed installations.

Here you can find more information on the designation of electrical cables.

What is the difference between RV-K and RZ1-K cables?

Although both cables have the same flexible conductor (-K : Flexible copper class 5 for fixed installations) and insulation (R : Cross-linked polyethylene XLPE), the outer sheath varies: the RV-K cable has a PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) outer sheath, while the outer sheath of the RZ1-K cable is made of halogen-free thermoplastic polyolefin.

What is the difference between the RZ1-K (AS) and the RZ1-K (AS+) cable?

TOXFREE® RZ1-K (AS) is a High Safety cable: halogen-free, low smoke and corrosive gas emission, non-fire propagating.
