    Autac Introduces Its Customizable TPE Cords, A Smart Alternative To Neoprene

    NORTH BRANFORD, CT-Autac, Inc., a leading manufacturer of retractile cords, announces its customizable Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) cords. Ideal for electrical wire and cable, the TPE cords present a smart alternative to Neoprene.

    TPE is an excellent replacement for the often hard-to-locate Neoprene. Its rubber-like feel and appearance make it comparable to Neoprene, and its ability to maintain high retractile memory and flexibility in high stress applications make it virtually indistinguishable. TPE has a wider temperature range than Neoprene, is more environmentally friendly, and eliminates the need for an expensive curing process.

    Available in a custom-made range of colors, the cords can be color-coded for easy and quick identification. The durable TPE cords are weather, oil, chemical, ozone, flame, UV, impact, and abrasion-resistant.

    Available in 12-28 AWG, the cords can be designed to handle varying amounts of amperage. The cords are featured in 12", 24", 36", and 48", which can extend on a 1:5 ratio if needed. The TPE cords have dielectric constants of 2.1-2.4 and dielectric strengths of 600 volts.

    Customized lengths and ratios are also available, up to a 12 foot retracted length extending 60 feet, to meet the user’s specific needs. The cords meet UL/CSA (Canadian Standards Association) specifications.
