Cable Performance & Specifications

GORE Abrasion Resistant Cable Jacket for Aerospace & Defense is engineered with Gore’s revolutionary fluoropolymers, providing extremely rugged construction and tolerance against abrasion and other extreme conditions. In fact, testing proved that it could easily handle the demands of avionics and vectronics without cracking or splitting, ensuring copper cables perform successfully throughout the system’s lifespan.

Our pioneering cable jacket eliminates the need for additional protective sleeving for copper cables installed in seats. Using SAE AS4373™ Method 703, we compared 100-ohm quadrax cables packaged with four different jacket types. According to the results, our engineered fluoropolymer fiber braid jacket drastically outperformed PFA and FEP materials for superior cut-through resistance at high temperatures. Without additional sleeving needed, weight savings and easier installation are achievable.

Standards Compliance across Aircraft & Military Land Applications

GORE Abrasion Resistant Cable Jacket complies with new and current industry standards for durability without jeopardizing size, weight or electrical performance. Besides meeting EN3475-503 Test Methods for Scrape Abrasion, it also meets the following:

  • SAE AS4373™: Test Methods for Insulated Electric Wire (Contact Gore for available data)
  • 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

Its durability and compliancy make our jacket system ideal for narrow seat configurations, as well as copper cables supporting the latest standardized high data rate protocols, like HDMI and more.
