Halogen-free cable

  • 25-Apr-2008 10:28 EDT

Featuring halogen-free requirements, high performance, durability, smaller size, and recyclability, Delphi’s halogen-free cable can reduce both cable mass and harness diameter by more than 20% in automotive applications. Under the right circumstances, according to the company, the cable could provide reductions in mass, weight, and diameter of cable and wiring harnesses that are significant for the commercial and specialty vehicle markets. The insulation on halogen-free cable weighs less than conventional coatings and can achieve abrasion- and pinch-resistance benchmarks with thinner applications. The halogen-free cable made its debut on the 2007 Toyota Tundra.
