Suflex® Astra® 601
Suflex® Astra® 601 tubing is an extruded polyvinylchloride tubing manufactured to withstand temperatures as low as -70°C. The unpigmented product exhibits very high clarity, allowing easy identification of legends and color-coded wires jacketed with the product. The low temperature characteristics of Astra® 601 tubing produce unusual flexibility and high cut-through resistance with maintenance of dielectric strength.
- Designed for operation in the -70°C to 85°C temperature range.
- Unpigmented product exhibits very high clarity.
- Excellent low temperature flexibility.
- High cut-through resistance and maintenance of dielectric strength, even at low temperatures.
