Tags: Press Releases, Product Release

HUBER+SUHNER is expanding its product range for road vehicles to include an anti-capillary single core. Inside the conductor of the new cable, a grease-like filling material prevents the capillary effect in the core. This stops liquids in the vehicle, such as oil, water or AdBlue, being conveyed through the cable and damaging the electronics and sensors at the other end.  The grease-like filling material is a compound developed by HUBER+SUHNER that is produced in the company's own compounding facility in Switzerland. Since it is silicone free, it does not form an undesirable foam when it comes into contact with transmission fluid. The compound can also withstand the electron-beam crossl ...
