AerosUSA has launched the OPTOflex, highly flexible opto-electronic conduit protective system. These small-diameter conduits are characterized by a metallic core manufactured from galvanized steel or stainless steel, with an outer jacket of non-flame propagating PVC sheathing or fiberglass braiding and external silicone rubber sheathing. The conduits are characterized by unique properties, which provide excellent lateral pressure resistance, stretch resistance, low flammability, as well as a wide resistance to solvents and chemicals. They are free of halogen and cadmium, and are known for their precise bending radius. Geared toward laser and opto-electronic devices, these conduits have a temperature range of -60° C to +600° C (-76° F to +1112° F), depending on the configuration, and are available in sizes ID 2.5 mm (3/32") to ID 12 mm (1/2").
