PMA EX-System conduits, fittings and accessories are manufactured from electrostatic-discharging polymide materials that inhibit the formation of electrostatic charge on the material surface, thus eliminating ignition potential due to static spark discharge.
They are now certified to ATEX 95: Atmospheres Explosibles 94/9/EC. This is a directive from the regulatory body of the European Community that stipulates requirements for materials used in potentially explosive areas since July 1, 2003.
The new PMA EX-System has the identical function of the PMAFIX/FLEX standard product range, but reflects the ATEX 95 stipulations.
PMA-Ex Systems are designed to be used anywhere explosive atmospheres exist: chemical plants, refineries, oil and gas industries, paint shops, mills, textile plants etc. PMA polymide Cable Protection safeguards the life and health of employees against the threat of explosion caused by electrostatic charge ignition.
