MIL-C-17 Coaxial and Twinaxial Cables

Mil-C-17 cables are constructed with either solid or stranded silver plated conductors insulated with an extruded PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) dielectric. The outstanding electrical and mechanical properties of PTFE over a broad range of temperatures and frequencies make these coaxial cables the standard for a wide range of military and commercial applications.
