Z flex® is an economical, pull-thru jacketing system for flat cables. This configuration is ideal for inter-connection applications where mechanical protection is required and a sealed, flat, jacket is desirable. Z flex® is supplied in reel form and is easily cut to any length required.
A special "blue-line" nylon cloth leader inside the jacket is provided for fast, easy pull-through of the cable. Z flex® is available in many standard sizes to fit the most popular flat cable sizes ranging from 20 to 64 conductors. Custom sizes and colors are also available.

A complete 360° cable management protection solution may be needed, and you’ll find it with Zippertubing’s Z Flex® product line. This product is the perfect blend of wire, hose, and cable protection because it provides a high-temperature, halogen-free, and flame-retardant solution.
Z Flex® products are sealed using a specialized RF heat sealing machine that seals both sides of the product, creating a complete 360° protection barrier from liquids. Once the product manufacturing processes are complete, a nylon leader is installed so that pulling your wires through the product is much easier. Because of the flat profile of the Z Flex® product line, these products are ideal for ribbon cables or applications with flat or rectangular profiles.
This product utilizes the following halogen-free, water-repellent, mildew-resistant, abrasion-resistant and flame-retardant materials:
Although this Z Flex® (TPU) is not specifically manufactured using a clean room in sterile conditions, with the right procedures, it could be used in the medical field, including in hospitals, operating rooms, trauma centers, and emergency rooms.
