Surprising advantages of nylon flexible conduit

nylon flexible conduit

More people use nylon flexible conduit to protect wire and cables. Nylon flexible conduit is a little different from the general plastic flexible conduit. But did you know why nylon flexible conduit is the best choice for the construction and engineering industries? Here are some advantages of them.

  •  Strength

As we thought, plastic is a kind of soft material, but the best quality of nylon has great resistance and strength, and also keep flexible after bending. When you want to choose a light conduit with strong strength conduit, nylon should be the best material.

  • Explosive environments

Recently, nylon was considered less than ideal for use in explosive situations due to its trait of building up a static charge in reactive environments. But there is one cable manufacturer who have put their thinking caps on and came up with a specifically modified, electrical discharging material. Ideal for use in flour mills and breweries, petrol stations and refineries, this is good news for engineers in all industries.

  • Rat-infested conditions

Not a nice thought, I know, but given the huge amount of time and cash lost in the several instances that a single rodent has developing a taste for cable on a railway line, this is great news for those in rail and infrastructure. Rats hate nylon. They don’t like the taste and they don’t feel the need to chew through it because unlike metal, it doesn’t hold onto traces of other territorial animals. Genius!

  • Deserts

With high resistance to UV as well as icy cold temperatures, nylon is ideal for use in desert applications where tough weather conditions and fluctuations in temperature are common. Tests conducted have shown that nylon products are also built to withstand huge wind forces and even sand storms!

  • Environment

Nylon cable protection can be manufactured with no negative impact upon the environment. Many cable suppliers are certified under the EU REACH system for being free from any hazardous or toxic chemicals, meaning that nylon is the ultimate green choice!

Nylon flexible conduit is widely used in everywhere based on it’s properties. Hope nylon flexible conduit develop more functions in the near future.
