Rated for Class 1 Clean Room use, Cicoil’s standard and custom high flex silicone flat cables are free of halogens, do not shed surface particulates and are water and chemical resistant. Cicoil’s custom cables can incorporate a variety of elements, including power conductors, shielded signal pairs, video and coax conductors, tubing for air or fluid transfer, and other design elements like the company’s patented Strip Mount fastening strip – all in a compact cable design. The silicone encapsulation provides a solid, one-piece construction that creates a highly durable cable package that will not break, deform or wear during a lifetime of more than 10 million plus cycles, even under high-speed flexing or tight bending radius conditions, the company says. Cicoil’s silicone extruded cables are impervious to water, steam, UV light and most chemicals, and are also suited for vacuum environments. Cables are available in continuous lengths, cut to order, or as assemblies. They are designed to withstand temperature extremes from -65 to 260 degrees C.
