The aerospace industry now requires cables installed in cockpit/cabin seats to meet more stringent requirements for abrasion resistance without protective sleeving. So, system providers are adding heavier cable materials to boost durability, which means more time and money for materials and labor. The industry needs stronger, lighter weight cable materials that can meet these requirements to keep costs down and get aircraft into operation as soon as possible.
Proven Durability for Better Protection
GORE High Abrasion Jacket System is designed with a revolutionary fluoropolymer fiber material proven to meet stricter requirements for durability, like EN3475-503. Our rugged jacket is extremely abrasion resistant and eliminates the need for additional protective sleeving. It also durably protects against demanding environments, like extreme temperatures, harsh chemicals, and undesirable fluids.
Our state-of-the-art materials are also smaller, lighter weight and more flexible compared to conventional materials available in the industry today. Installers can easily flex and tightly bend cables for faster routing in narrow seat configurations.
Ideal for Packaging High Data Rate Cables
Our remarkable cable jacket system is perfect for packaging cables that support the latest standardized high data rate protocols. For example, Gore’s HDMI 2.0 version for a higher video resolution up to 4K to view aircraft displays in high definition. And, Gore’s USB 2.0 version for quick content uploads/downloads at speeds up to 10 gigabits (Gb/s).
Simply put, GORE High Abrasion Jacket System is proven to satisfy more stringent durability requirements in a low-profile design for easier routing, faster installation, longer service life, and less time/money.
GORE High Abrasion Jacket System provides OEMs and system suppliers with many benefits that improve mechanical performance such as:
- higher abrasion-resistant material eliminates the need for additional protective sleeving
- rugged design proven to meet more stringent durability requirements for longer lifespan
- expedited installation with smaller, lighter weight construction
- easier routing in narrow configurations due to more flexibility and tighter bend radius
- ideally suited for packaging Gore's HDMI and USB cables.
