Sunlight Resistant Silicone Cables from Cicoil
Sunlight-resistant cables.
Valencia, CA — 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.

The company's proprietary silicone extrusion process allows multiple wires, shielded pairs, power conductors, coax conductors, tubing, and other design elements like the company'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. This design 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 to +260°C, acid rain, flames, shock, salt, humidity, cold temperatures to -65°C, vibration, weathering, coarse sand, submersion in water, mechanical stress and most chemicals.

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

The Sunlight Resistant Cables are UL Recognized, CE Conforming, RoHS and 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 to customer specifications, 100 percent tested and inspected.
