Additional Benefits

This unique wire provides the next generation wire end users have been looking for. A truly seamless wire since it is extruded, yet improved mechanical durability at elevated temperature compared to current extruded systems. In addition, it is lighter in weight than any current wire, and more economical than tape wrap construction. The product is insulated in two and three layer systems, for use as a component or hookup wire in Aerospace applications. The inner or middle layers are a modified high temperature material which has excellent high temperature mechanical and electrical performance. It has been modified to produce elongations over one hundred percent elongation. It is very light weight, and highly resistant to radiation. The outer layer in both systems is a modified irradiation cross-linked ETFE, a polymer well known for many years of use and performance in aircraft and space applications. The ETFE used in these products has been modified to include LoFlo™ technology thus eliminating concerns with storage due to fluoride outgassing. The unique properties of these materials when combined yield outstanding thermal, mechanical, chemical, and electrical performance.

Applications

The benefits are immediately evident. The inner layer is a highly durable high temperature inner layer which is extruded at high speed, for faster production time and shorter lead times than possible with tape construction.

Wire Processing

The outer layer provides an extremely chemical, moisture, and UV resistant surface. In addition, the normal weight construction meets NAVAIR requirements for arc track resistance. The surface is easy to mark with either ink jet, or laser. Because the outer layer is applied as a high speed extrusion, there is never any concern with tape edges tearing during installation.

Constructions

The construction is available in the Lightweight Weight and Normal Weight constructions. A further benefit is the specific gravity of the construction is lower than other typical aerospace wire providing for further weight savings.

NXGN200 is also manufactured in cable versions of 1 to 15 conductors, unshielded of shielded, unjacketed or jacketed.
