Cicoils High-Flex Cables Resistant to Water
June 13, 2007—
Cicoil's silicone cables offer improved environmental protection, including superior water resistance.
According to the company's press release, inherent water repellent characteristics make the silicone cables impervious to immersion, high humidity, fungus, and damp operating environments. Wet application include washdown, and autoclave. Conversely, extremely dry conditions or low humidity will not affect the cable's flexibility or life.
In addition, Cicoil cables are highly resistant to the corrosive effects of salt spray or seawater exposure, meeting all applicable specifications for shipboard use and marine environments.
The flat silicone cables are available with wire gauges from 4 to 44 AWG, in virtually any configuration required. The company's extrusion process allows multiple wires to be placed in a flat cable, precisely controlling the wire spacing, the insulation thickness, and the overall cable shape.
Cicoil says designers can create exactly the cable needed, in the smallest possible package. The silicone cable jacket and finely-stranded wire conductors combine. Cables are available in continuous lengths ("cable-only"), or as assemblies, complete with connectors.
