Abstract:

The paper describes the development of a high performance silicone cable design having a high resistance to adverse military environments encountered in the tropic, temperate, and arctic zones. By careful selection of materials of construction and by development of specialty silicone compounds, a cable design has been achieved having a degree of ruggedness comparable to designs with other materials. By virtue of low moisture absorption, low dielectric constant and high volume resistivity inherent in silicone elastomers, the cable design has low cross capacitance and high insulation resistance in the presence of moisture and at high temperatures.
