Bekiflex® Hx - Durable micro cables with a textile core

Bekiflex helix cable To expand our offering, Bekaert extended its current portfolio by developing an ultra fine cable – in a Helix/hybrid construction – combining a textile core and conductive wires – steel or copper based. The conductive wires are spiraled in a defined pattern around the textile core. 

The textile core gives extra durability to the overall construction, enabling the Helix cables to be used in different conductive applications.

Durability guaranteed

Consistency in electrical resistance and durability are important parameters, as they determine the overall performance of the Helix cables. We offer an extensive micro cable product portfolio, with a wide electrical resistance range from 0.09 Ohm/meter to 200 Ohm/meter and high flexibility.

The wires can be individually lacquered and the Bekiflex® Hx cable can be provided with an extrusion coating. The overall diameter is < 1.2 mm including the coating. Due to the hybrid structure, combining strength of wires and a textile core, these micro cables have an increased mechanical performance. 
These tailor-made, fit-for-purpose ultra fine and extremely durable cables with a high degree of flexibility can be used in a numerous amount of conductive applications: automotive heating, tube and tank heating, RFID, sensing, smart textiles and 
shielding.
