Composite Wire & Cable FEATURES & BENEFITS Carlisle Interconnect Technologies (CarlisleIT) has developed composite insulated cables to combat the limitations Excellent Temperature Performance weight and space savings, without sacrificing the mechanical » Available in 150°C, 175°C, 200°C and 260°C » Superior thermal life characteristics » The safety of high temperature resistant insulation in overload conditions independent of conductor and thermal performance of the wire. CarlisleIT’s Tufflite® and Superior Flammability and Smoke Generation Properties associated with Polyimide and XL-ETFE and improve upon existing airframe wire designs. Our composite cables offer Seamless™ cables address the need for a small, lightweight, arc resistant, 260° rated general purpose wire. For over 20 years our wire and cable has been tested and flown on thousands of commercial and military aircrafts. Its superior smoke, flame and toxicity performance enables it to be used safely in both pressurized and non-pressurized zones of the aircraft. The wide temperature range and overall balance of properties make Tufflite® and Seamless™ ideal replacements for all other general purpose wire types, both military and commercial. » Practically zero smoke generation and excellent resistance to flammability Excellent Resistance Arc Propagation » Superior resistance to wet and dry arc propagation Light Weight and Small Diameter » SLT has an approximate 5% weight savings over medium wall XL-ETFE Best Balance of Properties » Excellent flexibility and flex life » Highly resistant to hydrolysis » Superior abrasion resistance and cut-through performance Carlisle Interconnect Technologies / 100 Tensolite Drive, St. Augustine, FL 32092 Toll Free - 800.458.9960 / Fax - 904.824.6706 /
