High Flex Cables for Clean Rooms from Cicoil
Flat cable assembly and automated cable assembly system.
Valencia, CA — Rated for Class 1 Clean Room use, Cicoil's standard and custom high flex silicone flat cables are free of halogens, do not shed surface particulates, and are water- and chemical-resistant. This combination of features makes the silicone cabling especially suitable for Clean Room applications.

The custom cables can incorporate a variety of elements including power conductors, shielded signal pairs, video and coax conductors, tubing for air or fluid transfer, and other design elements like the company's patented Strip Mount fastening strip, all in a single compact cable design. These lightweight designs are an excellent alternative to bulky round cables and noisy, particulate generating cable tracks.

The silicone encapsulation provides a solid, one-piece construction that creates a highly durable cable package that will not break, deform or wear during a lifetime of more than 10 million plus cycles, even under high speed flexing or tight bending radius conditions.

The company's exclusive silicone extruded cables are impervious to water, steam, UV light and most chemicals and are also suited for vacuum environments.

The cables are UL Recognized, RoHS-compliant, and CE conforming, and are manufactured in an automated, climate-controlled environment. In addition, the company offers anti-friction and static-dissipative cable designs on request.

Cables are available in continuous lengths, cut to order, or as assemblies, complete with user-specified connectors, 100 percent tested and inspected.

The silicone-coated flat cables provide high flexibility, extremely long life, and can withstand temperature extremes from -65 to +260°C. The 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. The company's quality assurance system is certified to ISO 9001 (AS9100) standard.
