Micro-Coax Announces Price Reduction on ARACON Fibers and Braids
Jan. 27, 2016 (Pottstown, Pa.) – Micro-Coax announced today that the company has significantly reduced prices, as much as forty percent, on ARACON fibers and braids.
Micro-Coax is lowering their prices to support their long-term vision to make ARACON viable in commercial applications such as Civil Aviation and Wearable Electronics, where ARACON’s flexibility and weight savings provide an attractive alternative to metal wires.
“It is important that we do not consider this a sale, rather reduced prices due to many years of investment and the drive of our workforce to improve the efficiencies of our manufacturing process.” said Ron Souders, Technical Director at Micro-Coax. “Our team is very proud of the accomplishment and therefore would like to reward our customers accordingly.”
ARACON is a revolutionary product, available only from Micro-Coax, which combines the conductivity of an outer metal coating with the strength, lightweight, and flexibility of aramid fibers. ARACON is manufactured by plating DuPont™ KEVLAR® fibers, a material well known for its use in bullet-resistant vests, high-speed boats and military helmets. With the addition of nickel, copper and silver coatings of varying thicknesses, ARACON fibers provide a versatile combination of physical and electrical properties for a variety of demanding applications.
