HellermannTyton's braided sleeving provides protection for hoses, cable assemblies, and wire bundles against abrasion and damage caused by excessive wear and motion. Lightweight and flexible, the construction of braided sleeving allows it to expand beyond its nominal size to fit several bundle sizes and shapes. The relatively easy expansion and quick slip-over accommodates a variety of market applications. Securing the ends of braided sleeving is fast and easy with cable ties, electrical tape or heat shrink materials.
The braided sleeving covers a range of materials, sizes and styles-including standard PET, PA66 Nylon, Flame Retardant, Split Wrap and High Temperature products. The sleeving is also resistant to harsh environments such as chemical salts, solvents, de-icing fluids and petroleum products as well as being resilient against UV light. The unique physical weave of braided sleeving makes it extremely flexible yet it will not trap moisture or humidity. Most of the items can be cut with a hot knife, which sears the edges and reduces the amount of fraying that occurs during the lifetime of the product. For applications that do not allow access to a hot knife, a fray resistant version is available that can be cut with any ordinary scissors with minimal unravel.
