The aerospace industry is now requiring high-speed copper cables installed in aircraft to meet new, more stringent durability standards. But, adding more durability to cable materials often includes thicker, heavier materials that can weigh aircraft down. Plus, bulky cables can be stiff, inflexible, and hard to route in small spaces as aircraft are being updated with more high-tech avionics.
Proven Superior Durability
Engineered with a revolutionary fluoropolymer fiber material, GORE Abrasion Resistant Cable Jacket is proven to meet new stricter industry standards for durability without sacrificing size, weight, or electrical performance. Our rugged jacket is resistant to abrasion and meets EN3475-503 requirements. You no longer have to use additional protective sleeving now required for high data rate copper cables installed in cockpit and cabin seats.
Using SAE AS4373™, method 703, we also compared 100-ohm quadrax cables packaged with four different jacket types, and the results were undeniable! Our abrasion-resistant cable jacket drastically outperformed PFA and FEP materials for superior cut-through resistance at high temperatures.
Thinner. Lighter Weight. More Flexible.
Another bonus is that our state-of-the-art cable technology is thinner, lighter, and more flexible with tighter bendability than alternative materials for improved installation in narrow seat configurations. Routing copper cables packaged with our abrasion-resistant cable jacket will be much easier and faster for maintainers. Despite installation complexities and extreme flight conditions, our jacket won’t crack, split or break.
GORE Abrasion Resistant Cable Jacket ensures all-around, lifetime mechanical protection enabling cables to transmit critical flight data reliably in the intended application. It’s the ideal jacket for packaging copper cables that support the latest standardized high data rate protocols, like HDMI and more.
GORE Abrasion Resistant Cable Jacket provides aircraft system architects and engineers with many benefits that improve electrical and mechanical performance such as:
- revolutionary fluoropolymer fiber material unmatched in the industry
- proven superior abrasion and cut-through resistance at high temperatures
- eliminates need for additional protective sleeving required for copper cables
- meets strict EN3475-503 and SAE AS4373™-703 requirements for more durability
- ensures high data rate copper cables perform reliably in intended application
- expedites installation with thinner, lighter weight construction
- easier routing in narrow seat configurations due to more flexibility, tighter bending
- ideal for packaging GORE Aerospace High Speed Data Cables or industry alternatives
