Overmolded Wiring Harnesses
The overmolded electrical wiring harness design offers molded exterior protection for electrical cable and harness backshells. The use of fluoropolymer elastomers and fluorosilicones gives harness products improved durability, strength, vibration protection, and fluid resistance.
The overmold design is a sub-set of the closed bundle wire harness family of electrical cables. The difference lies in the fact that the backshells are encapsulated in a protective material. This protective material is applied during the manufacturing stages by the use of mold presses and curing ovens. While it does limit the harness repairability, it provides exceptional moisture sealing and vibration protection for severe environments and applications.
