P5/P12 BFOU Cable

Product Menu

BFOU cable features fire resistant which means it is made of materials that are nonflammable. This makes BFOU cable fire resistant, as they don’t melt or drip even when exposed to fire.

You can use BFOU cable for emergency control, power, and lightning of offshore facilities with a fixed installation. BFOU cable meets the IEC 60331 standard.

BFOU cable code meaning

  • B: For halogen-free fire-resistant tape insulation around the conductor.
  • F: For halogen-free inner covering
  • O: For tinned copper wire braid for armor
  • U: For halogen-free thermoset compound SHF 2 or mud-resistant thermoset compound SHF Mud for outer sheath

BFOU cable structure

  • Conductor: tinned standard copper, class 2 IEC 60228
  • Insulation: mica tape + halogen-free EPR (Ethylene Propylene Rubber)
  • Inner Covering: halogen-free compound.
