When wire and cable comes into contact with abrasive objects and surfaces, it will often cause the cable to lose portions of its jacket material with each touch. Failure attributed to abrasion is usually caused by having a cable jacket that is too thin, too soft or from using a material that is not durable enough to protect the cable's conductors.
The construction of every TPC wire and cable product takes jacket material into consideration when designing solutions that will be used during abrasive applications. Choosing the right cable product during abrasive applications ensures a longer life with less downtime from constant repair and replacement. Super-Trex® products are widely used for just about every application and are jacketed with a specially compounded thermoset elastomer, making it the most most durable option for the most common industrial applications. If you need cables that have superior abrasion resistance, repel heat and chemicals, take a look at the Chem-Gard® family products that are formulated to withstand this unique combination of harsh elements.
