Highland Heights, KY General Cable is pleased to announce that it has added another halogen-free line of cables to its 17 FREE offering.  The new Carol® Brand Carolprene® Types SOOW and SJOOW will feature substantiated green properties. With the removal of halogens, General Cable’s revolutionary 17 FREE line does not contain any chlorine, fluorine, bromine or iodine, reducing the overall toxicity of the cable and truly resulting in a more environmentally-friendly “green” product. Based on potential LEED credits established by The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and earlier requests for green products, General Cable, who is a member of the USGBC and the Green Suppliers Network, had its Wire Wizardssm closely examine the jacket of its Cord products, which has led to the successful engineering of these 17 FREE versions free of halogens.
