GenClean from General Cable Weathers Wash-downs

General Cable GenCleanSeveral years ago the food and beverage industry came to General Cable and said they were looking for a product that had all the properties of a rubber cord product, was rugged, durable and could withstand the wash-down cycles that are required in their industry. In response, General Cable developed a product that has all the chemical and abrasion properties of a typical rubber portable cord product, but also has the ability within the compound of the cable to make it through a wash-down cycle and clean off organic materials better. With typical rubber, dirt and grime adheres to the jacket and doesn’t come loose. This cord has different properties which allow dirt to get washed away.

General Cable’s video shows backed on carbon black being easily cleaned. Notice that the cable starts off very black, but with a simple wipe, you can see that it cleans off that cable and gets rid of those materials that would typically be on there and not come off of standard rubber cord. The GenClean cord is great for other industries as well that have a need for a cable that’s very rugged, durable and is also cleanable. It also comes with TruMark, sequential footage marking system, technology, which will save you money on scrap and time savings.
