Specifications that exceed standards

We understand that nothing is more important than a life. Which is why all our products are built to safe guard not just your life, but all that you have built.

Nakoda's electrical products are designed to withstand higher temperatures, emit lower smoke and halogen in case of a fire accident. The cables come sheathed in superior grade materials that keeps them safe for several years of usage even under the toughest of environments.

Nakoda's quality starts from selection of superior materials, higher insulation thicknesses and a state-of-the-art manufacturing processes. A stringent quality process that tests our products for various parameters ensure we meet most global standards of safety and definitely exceed the standards in many countries.

Thermal stability

A polymer’s ability to resist the impact of heat and retain its properties — elasticity, strength, or toughness — at any given temperature is its thermal stability. It helps understand how stable these materials are.

IS 694 requires a polymer to maintain a thermal stability of 80 minutes

The Nakoda FR remains thermally stable for 125 minutes while the Nakoda FRLSH goes even beyond with a thermal stability of 130 minutes, exceeding the industry standard by a significant margin.

High voltage test

High voltage tests are normally performed to understand how safely the product performs under rated electrical conditions as well how effective its insulation is.

Is 694 standards are for working voltage upto 1100 volts.

Our wires are tested at 3300 volts (3 times the rated voltage)and they pass the test without any breakdown.

Tensile strength

The resistance that a material offers to breaking under tension is tensile strength. If it is low, the PVC is likely to break when under stress.

IS 694 requires a Tensile Strength of 12.5 N/mm².

The Nakoda FR and FRLSH consistently deliver an astounding Tensile Strength of 20 N/mm², exceeding the industry standard by a significant margin.

Smoke density

The smoke density test monitors light transmittance with a minimum 40% light visibility required for FRLSH Cables.

IS 694 requires smoke density less than 60% with a light visibility of 40%

Nakoda FRLSH exceeds the benchmarks and delivers a smoke density less than 50% and light visibility more than 50% .

Oxygen index

The minimum concentration of Oxygen in an Oxygen/Nitrogen mixture in which the material will burn is its Oxygen Index

IS 694 requires an Oxygen Index of 29%
for FR and FRLSH cables.

The Nakoda FR wires consistently deliver an Oxygen Index of 30% whereas the Nakoda FRLSH wires deliver one of 32%, showing a quality superior to what the standard recommends.

Temperature index

A material’s Temperature Index is the minimum temperature at which the material can burn in air that contains 21% oxygen in lab conditions. It is useful to understand how similar materials perform under similar conditions.

Minimum Temperature Index Needed at 21% oxygen in air 2500 celsius.

The following are the temperature indices of the Nakoda FR and FRLSH.

Nakoda FR 2800C

Nakoda FRLSH 3000C

Insulation resistance test

Low-grade insulation is a general cause of short circuits, electric shocks and fires. This Insulation resistance test is designed to investigate the insulation at the cable's Maximum Operating Temperature (MOT), as specified in BS EN 50395.

Nakoda wires are insulated with superior quality materials which give it a significantly higher insulation resistance. This means that the insulation of Nakoda's cables allow very little current to escape through the insulation.

IS:694 Standard : 1x 10 ^13 Mega ohms/km

Nakoda FR : 4.5 X 10 ^13 Mega Ohms/km

Nakoda FRLSH : 4.5 x 10^ 13 Mega Ohms/km
