About Xtra-Guard® 5
With computers efficiently monitoring and controlling multi-million dollar production lines, Alpha Wire wants to make sure your lines never get shut down due to poor manufacturing of a cable. Alpha XTRA guard has been engineered to out last any other cable in any electronic application. There are now 6 versions of the Alpha XTRA guard material including flexible cables, supra-shielded cables, high and low temperature cables and extra rugged jackets for tough applications.
Alpha XTRA Guard 5 electronic cables are FEP PTFE cables for unmatched performance at temperatures from -80°C to 200°C and 100% impervious to all chemicals, acids, fuels, solvents and water. It also has a 20-30% smaller cable diameter than conventional cables and low friction jacket for ease of cable routing.
