Hitachi Metals, Ltd. in Cooperation with Hitachi Cable America Inc., Releases New Non-sticky Silicone Jacketing for Medical and Industrial Cables

Manchester, New Hampshire, USA, May 23, 2017

Hitachi Metals, Ltd., a Japanese division of Hitachi, Ltd., has recently released a newly developed proprietary in-line jacket / sheath coating process using a non-sticky silicone adhered and cured to an underlying silicone sub-jacket layer. Hitachi Metals supplies a wide range of innovative high-performance materials for a broad range of markets. The new non-sticky silicone product is currently being offered as part of the Hitachi Cable America Medical Components line of products. The new silicone has all the benefits of traditional silicone in addition to being highly cleanable, chemically resistant, biocompatible and stain resistant. Unlike traditional silicone, the new line of non-sticky silicone has a significant lubricious quality to the material that makes the end product feel much like PVC or a parylene coated cable which enables it to be cleaned and wiped with ease. The silicone is well suited for autoclave and high temperature applications ranging from -60°C to +150°C, in which high-flexibility, performance and cleanliness are paramount.
