    Yup,

    The cable is insulated with FEP.

    Where does Graphene fit into the design of cables? I can't think of an effective use for it.

    It's not an insulator, as a conductor it's nigh on impossible to terminate using current plug types and you wouldn't want it anywhere near live conductors. I could see it being used as a floating screen, but copper braid/mesh would be better as it could be earthed at one end by soldering if need be.

    No idea, I haven't finish making them yet.

    Hoping to be finished by the end of the week, just waiting on a bit of heat shrink.

    For conductor insulation the cable uses a form of Graphene polymer, which is an allotrope with excellent electrical, mechanical and chemical properties.

    This provides much better protection against electromagnetic interference. In addition, the Graphene's high thermal deformation capacity strengthens the dielectric by 30% to ensure identical performance for decades to come.

    Finally, the Graphene polymer creates a 100% anti-corrosive barrier, preventing oxygen from penetrating into the shielding and conductors. This isolation ensures both a perfectly closed electromagnetic field blocking all interference, as well as greater durability.

    Ah, I didn't realise you were referring to Graphene polymer composites. So it is as I thought, a screen. Presumably with the polymer acting as the insulator, so no additional outer insulating sleeve needed..

    Its got three layers, Graphene Polymer, FEP and the outer Jacket is something else that I can't remember lol

    Essentially, it should be rather good stuff. Cryogenically treated, cleaned conductor via ultrasonics and then pre burned in all before I get it.

    Its a very interesting cable. Should nullify any skin effect too, so i'm told. I am very excited to get them out to the owner and get his feedback.

    That has got to be cobblers, if you understand how/what the skin effect is.

    lol, well, yes but I am only repeating the "cobblers" in the blurb lol
