EXRAD® FXD Door & Hatch Cable SAE TXL

    Product features:
  • Long Flex Life
  • Low Temp Flex

EXRAD® FXD is a high performance wire designed specifically for flexibility and long flex life. Do not be fooled by wires that bend easily at ambient temperatures. The temperature performance range of FXD is –70°C to +125°C. FXD exceeds SAE J1128 TXL requirements. Standard connectors match exactly and seal well with FXD because it is the same size as other common automotive conductors. Even though it is flexible, FXD has enough column strength to allow easy insertion through the seals of water-resistant connectors. The high temperature performance and fluid resistance of FXD means it can be routed throughout the vehicle including the engine compartment. Superior abrasion and pinch resistance ensures durability and helps keep the wire harness safe and free from defect even with hundreds of thousands of flexes.

Given today’s longer warranties you need a wire that will perform more bends and twists than ever before. EXRAD FXD will perform up to 9 times more flexing than conventional wire. FXD processes very well on automated high speed cut and strip equipment. The end result is an automotive wire ideally suited to applications where a combination of flexibility, long flex life and performance is required.
