PTFE Cables

Flat and round cables feature engineered PTFE technology for use in extreme environments such as semiconductor manufacturing, aerospace, and industrial applications. The material and unique cable designs minimize particulation and outgassing while maximizing longevity.

The PTFE composite jacket material’s low coefficient of friction and tear resistance let the high-flex cables maintain signal integrity. The flexible material also allows flat cables to be stacked on top of each other, eliminating dividers and shelves, reducing the overall size and weight of the cable system.
