Fire-Retardant Materials for Wire & Cable Remain a Hot Topic at Annual IWCS Exhibition

DeWAL at IWCS 2017

IWCS 2017, the 66th Annual International Cable & Connectivity Symposium, has come and gone. There was a great turn-out for the exhibit and conference, which ran Oct. 8-11 in Orlando, FL, and we were pleased to see many old and new faces.

The show gave us an opportunity to exchange ideas with colleagues and explore new technologies such as fire-retardant materials for wire and cable, which are in high demand for Aerospace and Communication cabling.

And, as companies start to plan and prepare for 5G technology, we’ve found they are exploring the need for more highly engineered polymer materials. DeWAL stands ready to help develop these next-generation materials for wire and cable applications.

With IWCS wrapped up for 2017, we now set our sights on the biennial Hose Manufacturers Conference, set for Oct. 24 and 25 in Akron, Ohio. Make sure to stop by and visit us at Booth #2 if you’re at the conference. If you’d like to set a definite time to meet, please submit the short form at right, and we’ll get back to you quickly.
