Non-metallic Electrical Connectors and Cord Grips are a Must-Use Under Extremely Corrosive Conditions
That’s why Remke manufactures corrosion-free, non-metallic and waterproof connectors and cord grips designed to withstand the long-term effects of harsh environments. Remke’s line of non-metallic, Valox® cord grips are the perfect solution for highly corrosive environments within a variety of industrial applications.
The Basics Behind Valox
A thermoplastic, polyester resin, Valox’s semi-crystalline materials are based on PBT and PET polymers. It was developed by SABIC to be a versatile, chemically resistant non-metallic material that also withstands heat. The strength and ability to seal out the elements give Valox the following IP and NEMA Ratings: IP 52, 54, 56, 65, 67 and NEMA 3, 3R, 4, 4X, 6 and 12.
Ideal Environmental Applications of Valox
Environments where water and other liquids come into contact with electrical connectors. To withstand a large amount of water, or even submersion, Valox won’t absorb moisture; offering a level of corrosion resistance you won’t find in metallic versions. Common industrial uses include: food processing, paper production, and water treatment.
Environments with high temperatures, direct heat, or those that fluctuate greatly. Valox provides an excellent range of operating temperatures from -40°F to +248° F. Common industrial uses include: welding, food processing, and paper production.
Environments where cable connectors come in contact with chemicals and other abrasive elements.
Valox is suitable for FDA mandated chemical wash-down environments and ideal for food processing, manufacturing, paper production, and water treatment.
Remke’s inventory of Valox connectors includes:
– Optional wire mesh grip for added strain relief
– Straight body style for 3/1″, 1/2″ and 3/4″ conduit sizes
– 90-Degree body for 1/2″ and 3/4″ conduit
