TPC Wire & Cable Corp.

TPC Wire & Cable Corp. (Macedonia, OH) has launched its first antimicrobial cable product, DEFENDER®. The DEFENDER® antimicrobial cable jacket eliminates greater than 99 percent of bacteria (e.g. E. Coli, Salmonella) and fungus (e.g. Aspergillus) within 24 hours of exposure, according to the company. DEFENDER® antimicrobial cable contains a silver ion based antimicrobial additive commonly used in many consumer packaged goods. Adding this to the cable jacket during the manufacturing process provides long-term broad-spectrum protection from bacteria, mold, and fungus that is built-in to the cable jacket. The company adds that the protection is continuous and does not transfer to skin or other surfaces.
