Lightweight. Strong. Flexible
ARACON® is a high strength conductive fiber made from KEVLAR®, the same material used for bullet resistant vests. Our engineers quickly recognized that by substituting the ARACON® fiber in place of the silver plated copper braid traditionally used in our coaxial cables, we had the potential to reduce the weight by up to 30% and have a stronger connector attachment.
ARACON® brand metal clad fibers are available in various types of tubular braided EMI shielding for your most demanding applications.
UTiFLEX® Ultralight Spaceflight and Airframe cable assemblies from Micro-Coax are optimized for aerospace applications.
Micro-Coax presents ARACON® brand metal clad fibers. ARACON® combines the conductivity of an outer metal coating with the strength, light weight, and flexibility of aramid fibers.
ARACON® ribbon is ideal for shielding problems that do not allow a tubular braided material to be applied.
Originally designed for space applications, ARACON is increasingly being utilized in more earthly applications such as smart fabrics.
