Bengaluru, January 21, 2021- LAPP, the world market leader for integrated cable and connection solutions is the first manufacturer in the world to offer cable glands in a lead-free brass version under SKINTOP® and SKINDICHT® cable gland ranges.

LAPP firmly believes that to be successful in the future, companies need to place their focus on sustainability. At LAPP, we are developing sustainable products, even before being obliged to do so by laws and regulations. We see this not as a constraint but as  an integral part of our corporate responsibility.

The popular LAPP cable glands are now available in the new lead-free version. The first products include the popular SKINTOP® MS-M and MS-SC-M models, as well as the counter nut SKINDICHT® SM-M.

SKINTOP® MS-M:  It is the first choice for a wide range of applications in machine and plant construction, measurement, control and regulation technology, and where there are tough demands in terms of mechanical and chemical stability. These glands offer  optimum strain relief, wide clamping ranges, numerous approvals and a high protection class.

SKINTOP® MS-SC-M: The EMC gland features a highly conductive, flexible EMC contact spring and a low-resistance shield contact for EMC earthing of the shielding braid.

SKINDICHT® SM-M: The perfect locknut for SKINTOP® cable glands.

All of the above versions are available immediately in metric sizes M12 to M63. The acronym LF at the end of the article number indicates that a product is lead-free. Further product groups are being supplemented with lead-free versions.

The cable glands made of lead-free brass deliver the same reliable LAPP quality as the existing versions in terms of their mechanical properties, corrosion resistance and EMC properties. The lead-free version also comply with protection class IP 68.

With the lead-free SKINTOP® and SKINDICHT® cable glands, LAPP is taking a pioneering role in sustainable products.
