Flexx-Sil(tm) Cables Provide Cold Temperature Flexibility in Cryogenic Environments

Cicoil's Flexx-Sil(tm) Flat Cables provide reliability and cold temperature (-65°C) flexibility in Cryogenic equipment applications. In addition, these Class 1 Clean Room Rated cables are 100% contaminant free, exceed the outgassing requirements of ASTM E-595 and are well suited for use in vacuum environments.

Cicoil's Flexx-Sil™ Flat Cables provide reliability and cold temperature (-65°C) flexibility in Cryogenic equipment applications. In addition, these Class 1 Clean Room Rated cables are 100% contaminant free, exceed the outgassing requirements of ASTM E-595 and are well suited for use in vacuum environments.

Through the use of a patented process of encasing individual components, each crystal-clear cable can incorporate Controlled Impedance Pairs, Power Conductors, Ethernet, Thermocouple, Coax, USB, FireWire, Tubing for liquid or air transfer and Cicoil’s StripMount Fastening Strip, all combined in a single flat profile, precisely controlling the inner and outer dimensions of the entire cable. Integrating multiple elements into a compact flat cable design allows for a tighter bend radius, space & weight savings, and longer service life.

Unlike PVC, Teflon® or Polyurethane jacketed cables that become stiff and brittle, when utilized in cold temperature environments, Cicoil's exclusive, shock absorbing Flexx-Sil™ encapsulation needs no external conduit for protection, retains flexibility and will not deform, wear or crack due to long term exposure to extremely low temperatures (-65°C), vibration, high heat (+260°C), mechanical stress, water, alcohol and many chemicals. In addition, the ultra-durable Flexx-Sil™ jacketing material is "self-healing" from small punctures and cable jacket damage can easily be repaired in the field.

Standard “off the shelf” cables are available from stock for immediate delivery, and cable assemblies, complete with connectors, are offered for EVERY Cicoil flat cable. Custom cable designs, including assemblies with connectors of your choice, 100% tested and inspected, are also available with minimum lead times. In addition, Cicoil offers anti-friction coatings, impact resistant Super Tuff™ jacketing and custom shape designs by request

Cicoil's Flexx-Sil™ Jacketed Cables are UL & CSA Recognized, CE Conforming, RoHS & REACH Compliant, and are manufactured in an automated, climate controlled environment.

Cicoil has been a leader in designing and manufacturing high performance cable assemblies for over fifty years.
