An Electrical Conductor that Stretches 40% while Maintaining Electronic Performance

iSTRETCH Wire and Cables with connectors.

iSTRETCH is an electrical conductor that stretches and returns to its original size. It will stretch 40% while maintaining electrical properties.

The working length of 40% allows for generous movement with a nominal pull force. When an iSTRETCH cable reaches the end of its working length, it stops expanding.

There are a variety of cable configurations available. The greater the gauge the greater the pull force needed to expand. iSTRETCH cables are designed for extended flex life. They have increased flexibility and durability over standard cables. iSTRETCH is RoHS compliant, lightweight, and washable.

iSTRETCH shielded cables are protected with a 44 AWG serve shield that promotes signal integrity. iSTRETCH is unique in the cable industry. Potential applications include medical, body function monitoring, sports (high-risk equipment), defense and aerospace (soldier-borne systems, first responders, and body-borne vest systems).

iSTRETCH Tracer Wire

Available in spools of 75′, 150′, 500′, 1000′, and larger

iSTRETCH Tracer Wire is engineered to eliminate the problems commonly associated with conventional tracer wire: price volatility, reliability, breakage, lightning strike damage, corrosion, and theft.

At Minnesota Wire we use proprietary composite materials in a unique spiral construction to produce iSTRETCH Tracer Wire. Our tracer wire does not contain copper.

iSTRETCH Tracer Wire gives you a new option—a reliable and cost-effective tracer wire that provides long-term protection for buried infrastructure.
