Flat cables allow more options in designs ; producing cables that weigh less, create more space, and im - prove performance and safety. Their low profile enables them to hug surfaces and take advantage of tight space. Produced in an extrusion process; they can be sheathed with - out using adhesives that effect product performance.
Additional performance features of the TPU extrusion grade for flat conductor network cables include flexible insulation wall strength, resistance to abrasion, kink resistant, moisture, chemical and microbial resistance. Furthermore, the TPUs ' thermal insulation properties provide heat aging stability, low temperature flexibility, and good voltage strength. "Our new grade, along with our ability to custom formulate enables us to pro - vide OEMs improved and cost-effective solutions to meet their specifications”, says Stephane Morin, owner of APS Elastomers.
