General Cable’s Carol® Brand Super Vu-Tron® III
Take it to Extremes
Highland Heights, KY, December 12, 2001 - General Cable’s Carol® Brand Super Vu-Tron® III rubber cord is tough enough to be warranted for life. No cord performs like it because no cord is built like it. The cord’s proprietary, vulcanized jacket formulation make it virtually impossible to tear and provides the ultimate resistance to heat, cold, oil, ozone and chemicals. Super Vu-Tron III can withstand temperature extremes from -50ºC all the way to +105ºC and perform flawlessly even in the toughest industrial environments.
Super Vu-Tron’s Integral Flexfill® design allows the jacket to be extruded into the interstices of the cord instead of using a filler material. This provides a more compact cord, which enhances crush resistance, will not absorb water or oil, adds flexibility and makes it easy to strip for ease of handling. In addition, Integral Flexfill allows for a more consistent, convolution-free product appearance, which is often a major factor with standard rubber cord. The cord’s bright yellow jacket assures high visibility for safety and the jackets legend is permanent, helping to assure life-long, safe operation. Super Vu-Tron III is available with UL Types SOOW, SJOOW, CSA and MSHA approvals and is suitable for applications where OSHA considerations need to be addressed.
