HIGHEST PROTECTION FOR COPPER CABLES IN NARROW SEATS.
Vehicle systems require wires and cables that can deliver the highest performance no matter the conditions on land during critical operations. W. L. Gore & Associates offers various solutions that fulfill that need while reducing weight, installation complexities and overall costs. Our products meet and even exceed industry requirements for vectronics digital networks, mission systems, signals intelligence, digital camera/video systems and more.
PROVEN SUPERIOR DURABILITY
Military standards now require high-speed copper cables connected to mission systems to meet new, more stringent durability requirements. But, adding more durability often includes thicker, heaver cable materials that can weigh vehicles down. Plus, bulky cables can be stiff, inflexible and hard to route in narrow pathways, especially in seats.
Gore offers a true, one-of-a-kind jacket for packaging high data rate cables that meets both new and existing standards without sacrificing size, weight or signal transmission performance.
GORE Abrasion Resistant Cable Jacket features a revolutionary fluoropolymer that meets EN3475-503 requirements. With our durable jacket, you no longer have to use additional protective sleeving now required for copper wires installed in vehicle seats.
Using SAE AS4373™, Method 703, we compared our 100-ohm quadrax cables wrapped with our abrasion-resistant jacket against alternatives. As we expected, the results were undeniable! Our rugged cable jacket drastically outperformed PFA and FEP materials for superior cut-through resistance at high temperatures without cracking, splitting or breaking.
Cut-Through Resistance at High Temperatures
THINNER, LIGHTER & MORE FLEXIBLE
Another bonus is that our state-of-the-art materials technology is thinner, lighter weight and more flexible with tighter bendability than commonly used materials. Maintainers will find that routing copper wires and cables packaged with our jacket improves installation in tight configurations.
Solve all typical installation and operational challenges with a rugged cable jacket that promises all-around, lifetime mechanical protection. Select GORE Abrasion Resistant Cable Jacket for packaging your copper wires supporting the latest high speed data protocols, like HDMI and more.
Features & Benefits
GORE Abrasion Resistant Cable Jacket is engineered with unique features that make it more durable against challenging environmental factors and in-vehicle conditions, including:
- revolutionary fluoropolymer fiber material unmatched in the industry
- abrasion-resistant, cut-through resistant and chemically inert material
- thinner, lighter weight, highly flexible jacket design
Our cable jacket provides vehicle system architects and engineers with many benefits that improve electrical, mechanical and environmental performance such as:
- meets strict EN3475-503 and SAE AS4373™ requirements for added durability
- superior abrasion- and cut-through-resistance at high temps than other materials
- eliminates the need for protective sleeving required for copper cables
- allows copper wires to transmit high-speed data reliably in intended application
- saves weight and expedites installation because of thinner, lighter material
- simplifies routing in narrow seat structures due to more flexibility, tighter bending
- ideal for packaging GORE High Speed Data Cables or industry alternatives
