| MICO®: Mineral Insulated
Conductors / Mineral Insulated Cable
Mico® is Europa Metalli's mineral insulated
cable manufactured according to BS 6207 (or A53013) and
» an outer sheath, consisting of a continuous
seamless copper tube with a melting point of 1083°C,
» a magnesium oxide insulant, with a melting
point of 2800°C,
» 99.9% electrolytic copper conductors, with
a melting point of 1083 °C.
Mico® consists of absolutely inert materials with a mineral
base with main properties as follows:
» an extremely high melting point, much higher
than temperatures recorded in the presence of fire,
» an extremely high durability due to the fact
that the electrical and mechanical properties of the
materials used remain perfectly stable in
the course of time.
Mico® may also be supplied with an additional outer L.S.F.
(low smoke and fume material) self-extinguishing sheath (available
in orange, red, white and black colour) following the requirements
of IEC 332, halogen free, useful for areas where chemical
agents may damage the copper sheath.
Mico® is manufactured in two ranges:
Light duty: L (classified rated 500 V or 0.6kV according
to different national standards) ideal for low power lighting
and motive power systems, waterproof and fire resistant.
Heavy duty: H (classified rated 750 V or l.OkV according
to different national standards) ideal for electrical power
plants, waterproof and fire resistant.
Europa Metalli is one of the few manufacturers all over the
world able to supply the full range of mineral insulated cables:
either Ligth Duty or Heavy Duty up to 19 cores or up 400 mm2
The commercial coil lengths are designed to the maximum possible,
often avoiding the necessity of many joints: saving material,
time and money.
Please enquire for the actual lengths in the centre pages
of this publication.
Mico® follows relevant standards, the certification for
the manufacturing process and for final product has been issued
by many certification bodies, furthermore many tests have
been carried out on cable behaviour under fire, water and
critical conditions: for a list of certification refer to
