Coil Cords

Durability, low force-to-extend, excellent retractile memory, and high flex life are all-important customer requirements for our coiled cords. Through decades of experience, we have developed unique manufacturing techniques. Today we are applying the best of those ideas in our new manufacturing environment.

From 12 AWG to very fine wire 38 AWG and tinsel, our coiled cords are manufactured in single- or multi-conductor configurations. Standard and extra-flexible stranded conductors are available in both copper and high-strength copper alloys.

Conductor Insulation
Polypropylene, polyethylene, polyester, PVC, and TPE are most commonly used. Other insulations include FEP, PFA, and ETFE.

Shielding
We recommend the use of spiral wire shield to maximize the cord’s retractile properties.

Aluminum/polyester tape is also available, as well as a combination of the two. Increased shielding will often necessitate a heavier cable jacket in order to produce the desired retractile memory.

Jacket
Choice of a jacketing compound is dependent on the application and environment in which the cord will be used. Materials include polyurethane, polyester, PVC, TPE. All coiled cords can be terminated and prepped for your specific application.
