Sometimes while visiting any shop of home appliances you would have noticed bunch of Wires attached with different appliances covered in wire or tubing system moving in round shape. You would have considered is the necessity of shop keeper and would have never paid attention towards it. But, if you had ever tried to know the reason you will understand the reason of binding that bunch of wires in that spiral cut wrap. Binding the bunch of wires in one group protects them from abrasion which might have arisen as an impact when they are kept alone in open area. The reason why this bunch of wires is bounded only in spiral wrap PTFE tube is due the flexibility it supports in turning these wires.
Therefore in simple words, Spiral Wrap can be defined as the system which offers protection to wires, cables, tubes and hoses from abrasion when operated under extreme temperature and in tough bends. These tubes and wires are made from nylon, teflon PTFE, polyethylene UV nylon resistant, fire resistant polythylene and available in wide range of colors to make them easily identified while detecting any fault in wiring system, they are self extinguishing, can operate under extreme temperature going high up-to 5000 F, RoHS compliant and also chemical resistant. Since, the spiral cut tubing provides protection against the abrasion so that it is used in our day to day activities at homes, offices, institutions and various places. An interesting illustration of this wiring system can be witnessed at different types of telephones that are used at our places, the wires adjoining the phone set and instrument used for talking is the best illustration of spiral wrap wiring.
The major benefits of spiral can be referred as below:
- Supports flexibility to cables, hoses, wires etc operating under extreme high temperature;
- Capable of managing bunch of wires collectively in one pack;
- They are easy to install from any direction whether it is upward or downward;
- They are available in wide range and therefore can be used for differential purposes depending upon the requirement of industry.
