NEWtuf® Reinforced Silicone Rubber Cables
Designed for the Unique Demands of the Medical Device Industry
Silicone rubber is the material of choice for ultra-flexible,
autoclave sterilizable medical device cables. Silicone on
its own, however, has a physical weakness that can lead to
stretching, distortion or breakage after repeated wiping or
physical cleaning. NEWtuf® reinforced silicone jackets
overcome this concern without impacting biocompatibility,
flexibility, heat resistance, sterilization, dimensional
requirements or strippability.
NEWtuf® reinforced jackets provide three times the tensile
strength of silicone rubber and limit elongation distortion to
a fraction of a percent. Unlike conventional silicone jacketed
cables, your NEWtuf® reinforced cable can be repeatedly
handled and wiped while maintaining its original appearance

elongation unlike conventional silicone rubber jackets.
