NEW Flat Cables for Harsh Environments Video
Valencia, CA; January 14, 2018: Some environments are just too much to handle for most off-the-shelf wire and cable products. These include the likes of the Vacuum of Space, extreme moisture and steam, Polar Climates, sea ice, turbulent flight, desiccating humidity and chemical & acid exposure.
Fortunately, Cicoil’s unique Flexx-Sil jacketing materials don’t just excel in in some harsh environments, but excels in every one of them. To learn why Cicoil is the “Go-to” source when exceptional performance is critical and cable failure is not an option, check out the newest video in Cicoil’s online Video Resource Center: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ic8kIBdm7SE
Cicoil's patented computer-controlled extrusion process allows individual power conductors to be placed in a flat parallel profile, precisely controlling the spacing of each component, insulation thickness and the overall cable shape. This ensures that each of the internal conductors do not rub against each other and wear during operation, which is key to a very long cable life.Ideal for land, air, sea and the far reaches of Space, the deep freeze resistant outer jacket needs no external conduit for protection, is self-healing from punctures and will not wear, deform or crack due to exposure in tough operating conditions.
Manufactured with high-strength, oxygen-free copper wire, Cicoil's cable designs are naturally more durable than other types of round and flat cables, and the shock absorbing Flexx-Sil Rubber jacket is immune to extreme vibration, G-Forces, mechanical stress, salt water submersion, corrosion, sunlight, acid rain, corrosion, coarse sand, UV light, humidity, sub-zero temperatures (-65°C) high heat (+165°C), flames, ozone and most chemicals.
