Cable Performance and Specifications

The GORE Abrasion Resistant Cable Jacket for Aircraft is engineered with Gore’s revolutionary fluoropolymers, which provide extremely rugged construction and tolerance against abrasion and other extreme aircraft conditions. In fact, testing proved that it can handle the demands of avionics without cracking or splitting, resulting in copper wires performing successfully throughout the life of the system.

The GORE Abrasion Resistant Cable Jacket for Aircraft eliminates the need for additional protective sleeving for aviation copper cables installed in cabin and cockpit seats. With SAE AS4373™ method 703, Gore compared 100-ohm quadrax cables packaged with four different jacket types. According to the results, Gore’s cable jacket drastically outperformed PFA and FEB materials for superior cut-through resistance at high temperatures. Without additional sleeving needed, weight savings and simpler installation are achievable.

Meeting Rigorous Standards across Several Applications

Gore’s cable jacket meets stringent civil and military aerospace standards – both new and existing – for durability, yet it does not jeopardize size, weight or electrical performance. In addition to meeting EN3475-803 requirements, the GORE Abrasion Resistant Cable Jacket for Aircraft adheres to the following:

  • ABD0031 (AITM 2.0005); BSS7230; FAR Part 25, Appendix F, Part I: Flammability
  • ABD0031 (AITM 3.0008B); BSS7238; FAR Part 25, Appendix F, Part V: Smoke Density
  • ABD0031 (AITM 3.0005); BSS7239: Toxicity
  • EN3475-503: Test Methods for Scrape Abrasion
  • SAE AS4373™: Test Methods for Insulated Electric Wire

Its compliance and dependability make the GORE Abrasion Resistant Cable Jacket for Aircraft ideal for narrow seat configurations, as well as packaging copper cables that support the latest standardized high data rate protocols, such as HDMI and more.
