C&M Corp., a manufacturer of cable and interconnect products for a range of markets, has introduced its industrial-grade Duralon jacket material.

The company says the RoHS-compliant jacket, specifically designed for use in "rugged" industrial applications, is formulated to withstand sunlight and most oils, chemicals, acids, and fuels found within factory environments.

Conducive to semi-automated and fully-automated assembly and manufacturing environments, the Duralon jackets are suitable for industrial scenarios including plating operations, chemical plants, machine shops, and refineries, in applications including oil-resistant control and signal cables, tray cables, and power-limited tray cables.

According to C&M, Duralon is a proprietary formulation of a thermoplastic elastomer alloy with a matte finish that looks and feels like rubber, and is flexible enough for high flex, C-track, rolling flex, and bend flex applications for tens of millions of cycles. Additionally, the jacket material can be used in temperatures ranging from -24°C to +105°C and is flame retardant.

Cables constructed with a Duralon jacket meet the performance standards for tray cable per UL 1277, Power Limited Tray Cable (PLTC) per UL 13, and Appliance Wiring Material (AWM).
