Any damage to your cable’s jacketing material as it moves across a rough surface is considered abrasion. Common causes of failure due to abrasive applications are having too thin of a jacket or too soft of a jacket that fails to protect your cable’s conductors or your cable’s shielding during operation.

Choosing the proper abrasion resistant cable will keep your machines up and running efficiently, reduce downtime and allow you to use cable for a longer period of time.
