TPC Wire & Cable Corp. has added 500-K single and multi-conductor cable to their current high temperature cable line known as Thermo-Trex®. The addition of the 500-K product line fills a need for high temperature/high performance cables for use in abrasive environments.
The 500-K is jacketed with an Aramid fiber to provide outstanding protection against abrasion. The insulation is silicone which performs extremely well in high temperature environments. Designed for industrial applications, the product is rated for 600 volts and carries a 200° C temperature rating.
The uniqueness of this cable is the fluoropolymer layer under the Aramid fiber jacket. In dynamic/flexing applications this layer acts as a lubricant between the silicone and Aramid layers reducing internal abrasion, increasing cable performance and prolonging cable life making this an ideal choice for high temperature dynamic applications such as festoon systems. The fluoropolymer layer also provides an additional moisture barrier for added protection in harsh environments.
“We’re continuously looking to improve the life and performance of cables to reduce down time and associated costs. The value-added proposition of the fluoropolymer layer in our 500-K is that it will improve cable performance in dynamic flexing applications and extend product life, achieving our objective of reducing end-user costs and downtime” said TPC Product Manager David Sedivy.
Superior performance is a function of construction, materials, and matching the right cable accessory to the application. TPC provides high performance problem solving products, custom engineered products, and a dedicated team of sales professionals. Boasting a 96% on time delivery performance, TPC’s deep inventory levels allow for quick delivery.
