ADVANCE-GRP System
Switched interlocked socket outlets [GRP - Glass Reinforced Polyester]


 

ADVANCE GRP CHARACTERISTICS


The ADVANCE GRP product line includes a series of 16A, 32A, 63A, 125A interlocked sockets (compliant with EN60309-4 standards) and the casings to contain them.

It's the most complete range of interlocked sockets produced in GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) thermosetting material.

A unique feature which enhances the exceptional mechanical strength of ADVANCE GRP products is the SMC (Sheet Moulding Compound) production process used for the casings.

SMC is a technology which uses exclusively non-woven sheets, pre-impregnated with polyester resin.

This method consists in preparing the sheet material inside a mould which, equipped with a negative mould, presses the composite so as to allow compaction.

SMC is an advanced technology which enhances the quality of the raw material without reducing the high-strength characteristics during transformation; it's a high-performing technology in terms of the mechanical performance of the resultant product (glass fibre length, homogeneity of the material, integrity of the fibres).

On the contrary, the BMC (Bulk Moulding Compound) technology is a technology for moulding composite materials which uses a raw material available in "blocks" (short, charged fibres) which are subjected to high thermomechanical stress during the transformation process, consequently diminishing the mechanical properties of the details, thereby reducing the impact strength and flexural strength.

The glass-fibre reinforced polyester used in ADVANCE GRP guarantees excellent mechanical strength and a long lifetime:
this material is highly resistant to contamination, completely corrosion resistant and suited for applications requiring the use of components with low smoke emission and no halogens, LSOH (Low Smoke Zero Halogen) components.

The outstanding properties of the material are also guaranteed over time, thanks to the high RTI value (Relative Temperature Index), measured to be 20,000h. Numerous verifications and tests have been carried out, even UV resistance tests, in order to guarantee the long duration of the material's initial performance.

The thickness of the walls is sufficient to offer an excellent alternative to aluminium, stainless steel or cast iron.

 

OUTSTANDING HEAT AND FIRE RESISTANCE


The glass-fibre reinforced polyester used in ADVANCE GRP guarantees excellent heat and fire resistance: it does not propagate flames, emit halogens or smoke.

This material has outstanding flame retardancy: Glow Wire 960°C according to EN 60695-2-1; V0 according to UL94.

It's suited for applications requiring the use of components with low smoke emission and no halogens, LSOH (Low Smoke Zero Halogen).

 

OUTSTANDING IMPACT RESISTANCE


The glass-fibre reinforced polyester used in ADVANCE GRP and the high thickness of the casing walls guarantee an excellent mechanical resistance to impacts.

The SMC technology used to produce the casings makes ADVANCE GRP an indestructible product.

The impact resistance of the casings is higher than 20J (IK10) according to EN50102, even under limit temperature conditions (-40°C +60°C).

 

RESISTANCE TO CHEMICAL AGENTS


The ADVANCE GRP interlocked sockets and casings, thanks to the glass-fibre reinforced polyester with which they are produced, have excellent resistance to aggressive chemical substances, saline solutions, diluted acids, hydrocarbons, mineral oils, alcoholic substances.

They are ideal for use in highly corrosive atmospheres.

 

RESISTANCE TO ATMOSPHERIC AGENTS


The structure and materials used also make ADVANCE GRP a product suited for the most extreme environmental conditions.

The double degree of protection IP66 and IP67 (IP66 for 125A), guarantees an excellent seal against the entry of solid objects or liquids into the casings.

Outstanding resistance to UV radiation, exceptional reliability under environmental stress and use at both low and high ambient temperatures (-40°C +60°C).

 

EX VERSIONS


The ADVANCE GRP product line also includes a series of 16A, 32A, 63A and 125A interlocked sockets for installation in environments with a potential risk of explosion identified as zone 22 (dust) which fall under the area of application of the Atex Directive (European Directive 94/9/EC), compliant with the standards EN61241-0 and EN61241-1.

Type of protection:
Ex II 3D - Ex tD A22 IP66 T90°C
Ta -25°C +60°C.
