ThermoTAR Snow Melting Cables (SMC-FE) and Snow Melting Mats (SMM-FE) are special cables with enhanced temperature withstand ability and mechanical strength. These can be used for asphalt drive-ways, pavements, roads, parking-bays, when hot asphalt is directly poured on the cable while laying.
Asphalt from the asphalt machine in general has a temperature of 170-240 ï¿½C. SMC-FE cables and SMM-FE mats are suitable for withstanding this temperature for up to 10 minutes. The cable is developed according to IEC 800 Class C, which means that the cable has deformation strength of 2000N.
SMM comprise of flexible plastic grid that carry heating cable uniformly fixed on it. The heating cable is a snow melting cable consisting a resistance element provided with primary fluoropolymer insulation, metal shielding and secondary insulation of Low Smoke Zero Halogen.
Heating cables could be single conductor with 5.0 mm outer diameter and terminating on cold leads at two ends of the mat or could be twin conductor with 6.0 mm outer diameter and terminating on cold leads at one end of the mat. SMM come with a 5.0 m length cold leads as a standard.
