News Update: Mexichem Specialty Compounds is now Alphagary. Stay tuned for more updates.

Compounds designed for testing & certification to CPR requirements

It has been four years since the inception of the European Union’s Construction Products Regulation (CPR); far-reaching legislation that covers many aspects of building materials sold into the European Economic Area. 

The class or rating a cable will achieve is dependent on a variety of factors, and the ability to predict how well a cable will perform is notoriously difficult.  It is with this in mind that Alphagary has devoted a great deal of effort to developing the key features of MEGOLON and its halogen free flame-retardant properties that enables use in a wide range of applications.

Our MEGOLON compounds are tailored  for applications such as data and power cables and for different classes in each sector.   We have focused on ease of processing which is a difficult task when designing for the higher category performance requirements.

As cables are required to meet higher categories, the concentration on designing MEGOLON compounds for CPR-rated cables continues to be a cornerstone of development activity within Alphagary.    We partner with customers to fully comprehend the challenges that exist which allows us to offer solutions to answer those challenges.  Where an existing MEGOLON compound will not fully satisfy a set of criteria, we work to develop a suitable candidate.  Our focus in this area will continue as global engineers call for materials that satisfy a myriad of application and performance requirements.
