Sunlight Resistant Silicone Cables Withstand Exposure to High Levels of UV Rays
VALENCIA, CA-   Cicoil's Sunlight Resistant Cables withstand extensive exposure to radiation and ozone
Cicoil's Sunlight Resistant Cables are designed to withstand extensive exposure to high levels of radiation and ozone with no adverse effects. The crystal-clear flat Silicone encapsulated cable offers uninterrupted performance, flexibility and reliability, even after 10+ years in direct sunlight.

Cicoil's proprietary silicone extrusion process allows multiple wires, shielded pairs, power conductors, coax conductors, tubing , and other design elements like Cicoil's patented StripMount™ fastening strip to be placed in a single flat cable, precisely controlling the inner component spacing, jacket thickness and the overall cable shape. Incorporating various components into a single, mechanically tough flat cable allows for greater current carrying capacity, a tighter bend radius, space savings, extended operation-life and eliminates the need for external conduit, plastic pipe, interlocking armor or protective devices.

Unlike other outdoor cables that become brittle, discolored or stiff when exposed to sunlight, Cicoil’s ultra-durable silicone is “self-healing” from small punctures and will not deform, wear or crack due to prolonged exposure to UV rays, ozone, intense heat (+260°C), acid rain, flames, shock, salt, humidity, cold temperatures (-65°C), vibration, weathering, coarse sand, submersion in water, mechanical stress and most chemicals.

For applications that require additional abrasion and adhesion resistance, Cicoil offers anti-friction coating options by request.

Cicoil's Sunlight Resistant Cables are UL Recognized, CE Conforming, RoHS & REACH Compliant, Halogen-Free, Flame Retardant and are manufactured in an automated, climate controlled environment. Standard "off the shelf" single conductor, multi-conductor and hybrid cables are available from stock in continuous lengths, cut to order, or as assemblies with connectors of your choice, 100% tested and inspected.

Cicoil has been a leader in designing and manufacturing high performance cable assemblies for over fifty years. The company's unique silicon coated flat cables provide high flexibility, extremely long life, and they can withstand temperature extremes from -65 degrees to +260 degrees Celsius. Cicoil's cables are used in thousands of demanding applications; including aircraft fuel control cells, semiconductor automation, and the Space Shuttle. Cicoil designs and manufactures its cable and cable assemblies in an automated facility in Valencia, California. Cicoil's quality assurance system is certified to the ISO 9001 (AS9100) standard.
