7 X 7 AIRCRAFT CABLE MODERATELY FLEXIBLE
For use where extreme flexibility is not necessary. Commonly used in aircraft and automotive controls, it performs highly in a wide range of mechanical applications.
7 X 19 AIRCRAFT CABLE VERY FLEXIBLE
Used when flexibility and fatigue are concerns. Aircraft controls, running rigging on sailboats, exercise equipment, winches and garage doors are all common applications.
302/304 Stainless Steel: Also known as 18-8 (18% chrome and 8% nickel nominal) This alloy is the most common of stainless steel alloys providing good corrosion resistance and strength comparable to galvanized carbon steel grades.
Stainless Steel aircraft cable is available in both nylon and vinyl coated.
Nylon Coated Cable is for applications that require a heavier duty coating than vinyl. It is harder and more durable. There are different types of nylon coating that can be customized to your specific need.
POLY-VINYL-CHLORIDE (PVC) is the most commonly used plastic for mechanical cable coatings, especially where cost is a factor. Vinyl is flexible, has good weathering resistance and has excellent resistance to the ultra violet rays of the sun which degrades many plastics. Vinyl is easily colored in a wide range of the spectrum from bright vivid colors to soft pastels, from metal flake to international orange. Again, we will "tailor" a color to fit your needs.
We can supply a vinyl coating to meet MIL - I - 631, Type F, Form U, Grade A, Class II, Category 1.
