Flexible Silicone Cable Solutions for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Applications
Cicoil's Flexible Flat Silicone Cables are designed to provide absolute reliability and uninterrupted operation when utilized in Pharmaceutical Processing Systems. Unlike other types of cables, such as PVC, Polyurethane or PTFE, Cicoil's designs are Non-Contaminating, Flame Retardant (UL 94 V-0) and Class 1 Clean Room Rated for continuous motion applications.

Cicoil's light-weight cables can incorporate any variety of data, power and video conductors in a single, compact cable design. In addition to every type of electrical conductor, the cables can also include single and multi-lumen tubing for air or liquid transfer, and other design elements like Cicoil's patented StripMount™ fastening strip, all in the same cable, precisely controlling the inner component spacing, jacket thickness and the overall cable shape.

Even under extensive tight bending and high speed flexing, Cicoil's exclusive, crystal-clear silicone encapsulation will not wear, tear or deform during a lifetime of more than 10 million cycles. This unique halogen-free silicone is "self-healing" from small punctures and will not degrade or delaminate when exposed to temperature extremes (-65°C to +260°C), wash down processes, alcohol, autoclave, vibration, UV light, electrical & mechanical stress, steam and many chemicals.

Standard "off the shelf" cables are available from stock for immediate delivery and custom designs, including cable assemblies with connectors of your choice, are also available with minimum lead times.

In addition, Cicoil offers anti-friction coating options, custom shapes, fan-out/break-out cables and its new FlexRail™ self-supporting flat cable system by request.

Cicoil's Flat Silicone Cables are UL Recognized, CE Conforming, RoHS & REACH Compliant, are manufactured in an automated, climate controlled environment and also exceed ASTM E-595 outgassing specifications.

Cicoil has been a leader in designing and manufacturing high performance cable assemblies for over fifty years. The company's unique silicone coated flat cables provide high flexibility, extremely long life, and they can withstand temperature extremes from -65 degrees to +260 degrees Celsius. Cicoil's flat 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.
