W. L. Gore & Associates continues to enhance its engineered PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) technology for use in flat and round cables. The customized materials and unique cable designs have resulted in products designed to minimize particulation and outgassing while maximizing longevity, the company says. The low coefficient of friction and excellent tear resistance of Gore’s expanded PTFE composite jacket material enable its high flex cables to maintain excellent signal integrity, the company adds. This flexible material also allows the flat cables to be stacked on top of each other without needing dividers and shelves, reducing the overall size and weight of the cable system. Gore offers several high flex, clean (low particulation and outgassing) cable solutions, including the High Flex Flat Cable, Trackless High Flex Cable and High Flex Round Cable.
