Midcon cables provides custom cable assemblies with high compression molding using different types of materials including Viton, FKM, EPDM molding and Neoprene. These molding capabilities provide protection in harsh environments including moisture & washdown applications, UV Protection.
Viton has outstanding resistance to heat. In fact, ranging from -13°F to 446°F and is also known for its excellent chemical resistance. Viton offers swell resistance in high octane and oxygenated fuel blends. This gives Viton® superior performance abilities in Ethanol/Methanol blended gasoline applications. Viton base resistant grades also offer improved resistance to amine based oil protectants found in new transmission oils.
EPDM has excellent water resistance, both fresh and salt, as well as being very good with ozone, UV and oxidation and is an extremely durable rubber making it desirable for many applications. EPDM has much better resistance to heat, light and ozone than unsaturated rubbers such as natural rubber, SBR or polychloroprene (Neoprene). EPDM can be formulated to be resistant to temperatures as high as 150°C. EPDM has good low temperature properties, with elastic properties to temperatures as low as -40°C depending on the grade and the formulation.
Let Midcon Cables help you with you high compression and harsh environment molding requirements for custom cable assemblies.
