Auto Marine showcases new OCEANFLEX® product range at METS 2014

Auto Marine recently exhibited at The Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS), held annually at the RAI Exhibition Centre in Amsterdam, Holland.  The three day exhibition, ran from 18-20 November, and is the world’s largest exhibition of equipment, materials and systems for the international marine leisure industry.  

METS confirmed its status as the world-leading B2B event of its kind.   A record number of 21,086 visitors were welcomed by a record number of 1358 exhibitors.  Crucially, early results of the post-show surveys prove that visitors and exhibitors alike were pleased with the results of the three-day event.  METS also attracted 6.5% more international visitors and 3% more decision-makers.

Hailed as the perfect place for companies to forge profitable relationships, METS is the only international B2B exhibition for the marine leisure industry and showcased new product launches from 1,345 exhibitors from over 40 countries. 

Commenting on Auto Marine’s show experience Peter Hammond, Managing Director says “Far more than just an exhibition, METS combines new products, seminars and unrivalled networking opportunities for exhibitors and indeed visitors to connect across countries, technologies and industry sectors.  It provided a perfect platform for Auto Marine to connect with new potential customers and re-connect with existing ones.”

Industry leader Auto Marine is the UK’s largest low voltage manufacturer of high quality cables and a distributor of electrical components and accessories throughout the automotive and marine sectors. 

Auto Marine showcased OCEANFLEX® product range.  OCEANFLEX® Cable is a tinned thin wall low voltage wiring cable designed for use in harsh environments, the copper strands are tin plated, which makes this cable more resistant to corrosion.

In harsh environments low voltage copper cables corrode over time, the copper oxidises turning black and in salt water environments copper forms a carbonate layer (turquoise).  Both these elements cause the cable to have a decreased electrical conductivity which eventually weakens the cable and causes electrical faults and failures.

OCEANFLEX®  has been specifically designed to combat these problems.  The copper conductors have been tin plated to that they are highly resistant to corrosion over short or longer periods of time whether caused by moisture, water or salt water.  OCEANFLEX® cables have a much greater life span compared to standard cables which in turn results in lower repair/maintenance costs and reduced down time due to failures.

Ideally suited for general wiring in the Automotive and Marine industries where there is exposure to water, typical applications include:- boats, rally cars and off road vehicles.

OCEANFLEX® is the perfect choice, when designing, building repairing or changing low voltage electrical wiring in harsh environments.
