Durability, low force-to-extend, excellent retractile memory,
and high flex life are all-important customer requirements for
our coiled cords. Through decades of experience, we have developed
unique manufacturing techniques. Today we are applying the best
of those ideas in our new manufacturing environment.
From 12 AWG to very fine wire 38 AWG and tinsel, our coiled
cords are manufactured in single- or multi-conductor configurations.
Standard and extra-flexible stranded conductors are available
in both copper and high-strength copper alloys.
Polypropylene, polyethylene, polyester, PVC, and TPE are most
commonly used. Other insulations include FEP, PFA, and ETFE.
We recommend the use of spiral wire shield to maximize
the cords retractile properties.
Aluminum/polyester tape is also available, as well as a combination
of the two. Increased shielding will often necessitate a heavier
cable jacket in order to produce the desired retractile memory.
Choice of a jacketing compound is dependent on the application
and environment in which the cord will be used. Materials include
polyurethane, polyester, PVC, TPE, and silicone. All coiled cords can be terminated
and prepped for your specific application.
