German Innovation Award 2023 in Gold für ECOHEMP

Especially the abandonment of PVC for the sheath of the new cable series ECOCORD ( using a recyclable alternative fabric instead) and the additional textile sheath made of 100% hemp for the first product series ECOHEMP - as well as other aspects to reduce the CO² footprint - convinced the expert jury of the "German Design Council" with regard to the decision out of 650 submissions worldwide ( with a total of 20 "Gold Winners").

For Cordial, this is a great motivation for further steps towards sustainable products in the ECOCORD line.

ECOHEMP: Sustainable cables from Cordial

Cordial, the innovator in the field of instrument cables, is introducing a new era in cable production. We have decided to distance ourselves from traditional PVC jackets, which are criticized for their poor recyclability, and instead choose TPE-V.

TPE-V is a unique blend of soft and flexible components that ensure high flexibility and windability, as well as harder components that provide high resistance to impact and usability at high temperatures. But that's not all: TPE-V is also recyclable and requires significantly less energy to manufacture than traditional PVC materials. In addition, it is 25% lighter than PVC. This innovation is encased in a fabric jacket made of environmentally friendly hemp fibres, which are GOTS-certified.

We are proud that the entire production of our EcoHemp series takes place in Europe, in order to keep supply chains short and support a sustainable future. We also plant a tree for every cable sold through the organization Trees for the Future. The textile jacketing of our EcoHemp series is also GOTS certified.

We refer to our new meterware and product line as ECOCORD, and it is the first step towards a sustainable future at Cordial. Our philosophy is: A better world starts with a better cable. Convince yourself and learn more about our new ECOCORD instrument cables.
