Discontinuation of PTFE Flat Cables Creates Scramble for ReplacementsAccording to customer sources, at least one major manufacturer of PTFE-jacketed flat cable has announced their plans to discontinue that product. As an aid to users affected by the disruption, and who may be sourcing alternatives, Cicoil has prepared a useful comparison of the performance, price, and features of their high-flex silicone-jacketed flat cable versus PTFE-jacketed flat cable.

The comparison includes a review of the method of manufacturing for each type of cable, and its impact on the cable’s durability, flexibility, environmental capabilities, strength and performance, versatility, and cost.

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