RPU-17 is a medium-weight, fire retardant poly(ether) urethane-coated polyester-fabric jacket material designed to provide a tough, flexible, non-PVC cable jacket. The Polyester-fabric core makes RPU-17 ideal in applications where a high degree of tear resistance is required. It can be combined with most Zippertubing EMI Shielding materials to create EMI-hardened jacket assemblies. Custom designs utilizing mechanical zippers, hook-n-loop, stainless steel snap buttons, pressure sensitive adhesives and track closures are available. RPU-17 is white in color, making it ideal for medical and clean room applications where PVC-based materials are restricted.
