The silicone encapsulation
provides a one-piece construction that creates a durable cable package that
will not break, deform or wear during a lifetime of more than 10 million
cycles, even under high speed flexing or tight bending radius conditions. Cicoil's silicone extrusion process also
delivers advantages in extreme environments, including temperatures ranging
from -65 to +260C, and the cables are impervious to water, steam, UV light and
Cicoil's UL Recognized, RoHS
Compliant & CE Conforming cables exceed the outgassing requirements of ASTM
