LS Cable and System’s e-Flatek

LS Cable and System announced on June 25 that it has developed e-Flatek, a non-electrostatic cable system for clean rooms. It minimizes the generation of dust when the cable is moved and prevents generation of static electricity. This is the second development in the world after the United States.

Cables used in clean room measurement and production equipment generally use Teflon instead of ordinary polyvinyl chloride (PVC) as a covering material to prevent dust generation. However, the problem is that Teflon generates static electricity more than 10 times that of PVC, which can cause equipment error or reduce the precision of the product.

LS Cable and System used insulation materials that prevent electric and thermal conduction of cables to reduce electric resistance and prevent generation of static electricity.

The company plans to expand marketing to domestic semiconductor and display companies as well as precision equipment and pharmaceutical companies in Europe and Japan. It strives to secure future growth engines by developing high-voltage harnesses for electric vehicles, ESS parts, and HVDC cables.
