LS produce world's first high-retardancy, non-toxic cables Thursday 7 August 2008 PDF Print LS Cable has used nanotechnology to develop the world’s first high- retardancy, non-toxic cables for electronic devices. The cables help to meet the growing demand for eco-friendly products, while still satisfying the needs of high specification items such as TVs, LCD monitors and notebooks, which often have the most complicated retardancy levels. Nano-material technology can be used to produce a harder wire wall. The process combines existing retardants to electronic materials while evenly spraying non-organic materials of Nano particle sizes - the length of one side is less than 1/10,000,000 of a metre. The application is also known as high value next-generation material technology. As well as meeting the high-retardancy requirements, nanotechnology greatly improves the low strength of halogen-free and eco-friendly retardants. It also reduces the amount of retardants used by more than 30% making the process considerably greener than many existing products. Min-Soo Kim, managing director of LS Cable UK Ltd., comments: “We have used the latest technology to solve the age-old problem of creating a high-retardancy cable that’s also green. “Everyone from businesses down to consumers are becoming more eco-aware and conscious of their impact on the environment. There is a huge global market for electronic products that could harness this new non-toxic cabling, and we’re obviously excited to be introducing it into Europe.” The unique process was developed over two years at Seoul National University, and LS Cable are now applying the nanotechnology to cables for electronic devices and automotives, telecommunications, ships and other marine activities.
