Overview

Today’s military aircraft are exposed to increasingly harsh environments that can cause frequent cable failure — from high pressures, extreme temperatures and vibration to sharp edges in small spaces. The costs and consequences can be substantial across the entire supply chain, including downtime costs, lost production, and expensive equipment replacements.

Hook-Up Wires deliver excellent electrical and mechanical performance in these challenging conditions with temperatures up to 260°C. The specialized insulation materials in Gore’s wires reduce the risk of abrasion and cut-through while maintaining reliable signal integrity for long-lasting performance. Our wires meet stringent military specifications such as MIL-W-16878/20-22.

Reduced Size and Weight

The smaller diameter and improved dielectrics of our wires reduce weight and increase flexibility with a tight bend radius, which makes initial routing easier in tiny spaces.

GORE Hook-Up Wires provide outstanding electrical performance, durable mechanical protection, reduced size and weight, and greater flexibility — resulting in less maintenance, downtime, and total costs over time.

Benefits

GORE Hook-Up Wires provide system architects and engineers with many benefits that improve electrical and mechanical performance such as:

  • Excellent signal integrity in extreme conditions with wide temperature range
  • Longer cable and wire life with chemical-/abrasion-resistant and low-creep insulation materials
  • Improved installation due to greater cut-through resistance that protects against sharp edges
  • Easy routing with smaller, lightweight and more flexible constructions

For more information about the benefits of our wires, please contact a Gore representative.
