Colors and special solutions

All energy chain cable carriers made from igumid G are available in the colors listed below. Additional colors are usually feasible. Colored energy chains are basically not available from stock. Delivery time and surcharge for colored energy chain on request All values listed apply to stability (e.g. unsupported lengths) and material characteristics for black E- Chains® only. Colored energy chains may have altered characteristics. This also applies for all E-Chains made from special materials (e.g. conductive energy chains made from igumid GC or other special materials).
