Abstract : Accordingly, the present invention provides a tear resistant flexible cable of Kapton/Pyrolux/Teflon construction. Cable conductors are imbedded in Pyrolux material which is then coated with Kapton. A non-redundant layer of Teflon is then coated over the Kapton. An additional layer of Kapton may be added if desired. Therefore, it is an object of the present invention to provide a flexible cable having good tear resistance while maintaining the advantages of current cable construction. Other objects, advantages and novel features of the present invention will be apparent from the following detailed description when read in conjunction with the appended claims and attached drawing.
