Scroll to Pricing

Machinery and engine malfunctions can occur due to inappropriate cable management. Properly securing wires and cables on your equipment can result in a significant loss or profit to an individual or company. Protecting your equipment can also prolong its existence while reducing downtime.

Using the Flexo Tight Weave Flame Retardant Braided Sleeving will provide maximum abrasion protection and shielded coverage from fierce temperatures ranging between -94F and 257F that can drastically affect equipment functionality. This tightly braided 9 mil flame retardant monofilament was developed by aircraft engineers for the aviation industry which severely demands high abrasion protection. Major airlines use this braided sleeving because its lighter than other braided sleeving and resistant to gasoline, hydraulic fluids, and engine solvents making this cable sleeve ideal for aviation applications. Flexo Tight Weave Flame Retardant Braided Sleeving is available in 1 color and dimensions reaching 3 in diameter.

This material is Halogen Free, RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) compliant, UL (Underwriters Laboratories) listed, and CSA (Canadian Standards Association) listed, as well as VW-1, MIL-202, and FAR 25 Approved.

It is recommended to cut with hot knife for sealed ends.
