April 10, 2013 - Cable manufacturer Helukabel says its Nanoflex line of hygienic control power and data cables have been approved by UL and CSA, meaning it can be used in industries requiring machinery and its component parts to resist microorganisms. The cable’s conductors are enclosed in a specially formulated PUR outer jacket that prohibits bacterial growth. Furthermore, the Nanoflex’s outer jacket is hydrolysis- and detergent-resistant, allowing it to withstand cleaning processes used to sterilize equipment. The entire line is UV, oxygen, ozone and radiation resistant up to 110 Mrad. In addition to the recently received UL and CSA approvals, Nanoflex power and data cables also have CE approval for companies manufacturing equipment for export to Europe.
