Polyurethan cables
are most appropriated to be used in dynamic applications.
Tensile strenght of PU is 45 MPa, Elongation is 600%. To compare, if Elongation of Silicon rubber is nearly the same than PU, Tensile strenght of Silicon rubber is about 10 MPa.

Resistance to bending stress...

The pliability of a cable is directly related to the hardness of the materials used, but duration of life of a cable is connected to the strength of its components : the construction of a dynamic cable is a balance between strength, ductility and elasticity of employed materials.
