Approval of "f3 corrugated tube" as 10th environmentally conscious product

The SWS Group established the Environmentally Conscious Products Approval System in 2005, based on the principle "Contribute to global environmental preservation through products." Since then we have been promoting the development of environmentally conscious products. The approved products are provided with the Eco-symbol mark, and these are permitted to carry this mark in the product catalog, on packaging materials, etc.

The newly developed "f3 corrugated tube" has been approved as the 10th environmentally conscious product. Corrugated tubes are used as protectors for wires that form a wiring harness.
When compared to the previous product, the new product is smaller in diameter, meaning that the weight is reduced, leading to energy saving. In addition to this, indented surface of the tube is improved to prevent the slit from opening, meaning that the material use is reduced as taping is no longer necessary, leading to material saving.
