HYPRON® lead-free cables

  • Hypron® unarmored flame-retardant cablesThis new generation of power and control cables is especially designed for refineries and petrochemical installations in moist areas where corrosive aromatic hydrocarbons are present.
  • Hypron® offers an alternative to conventional lead-covered cable and is an environmentally-friendly solution.

Nexans has delivered Hypron® cables for the control room of Gasco’s ABICS refinery in Abu Dhabi, and instrumentation cables for the Shell Pearl GTL in Qatar. Hypron® power cables are also used for BASF refineries in Germany and Belgium and to CEPSA in Spain.
