Product Notes

Notes: Datalene® insulation features include a low dielectric constant and a low dissipation factor for high-speed, low distortion data handling. Physical properties include good crush resistance and light weight. Pair jackets and shields are bonded so both strip simultaneously with automatic stripping equipment.
