St. Paul, Minnesota – An exciting new 8-episode NATGEO Channel TV competition, SHOWDOWN OF THE UNBEATABLES, will feature Minnesota Wire’s unique iStretch® cable in a competitive challenge on its Friday, May 23rd episode at 8PM Central. The program pits dueling entrepreneurs and their innovative products against each other.

“We take on an Air Cannon manufacturer that shoots T-shirts at arena events, and shoots supplies ship-to-ship for the Navy. It was a fun challenge that we enjoyed doing for the show,” said Paul J. Wagner, Minnesota Wire CEO. “I can’t tell you the outcome, yet MnWire knows how to rise to a challenge.”

iStretch cable is an electrical cable that stretches up to 40% and returns to its original size, without losing conductivity. Its unique properties and extended durability make it superior for use in a number of applications over standard wire. Some of these include:

• Medical – Patient Monitoring and Stimulation
• Sports – Wearable Electronics / E-Textiles
• First Responders – Communication and Navigation Equipment.
• Defense – Soldier Body-borne Systems
• Aerospace – Increased Fatigue Resistance and Stretchable Antennas
