Flex-Guard PE/TW

955 Series | Flex-Guard PE/TW

General purpose tight weave braided PET monofilament sleeving

  • Demonstrates excellent chemical and fungus resistance
  • Provides good mechanical properties with additional coverage
  • Resistance to abrasion and cut-through make it ideal for many industrial and electrical applications
  • Open weave construction allows expansion above or below original diameter
  • Easy to apply and slip on quickly over irregular shapes
  • Good flexibility retained at low temperatures allows for easy flexing in any direction
  • Can neatly capture a number of different sized items within one length
  • Most commonly used over wires, wire bundles and harnesses, cable assemblies, flat ribbon cable, tubing and hoses where it provides tough, durable protection
  • Open weave construction allows for complete drainage, prevents condensation and provides for dissipation of heat and moisture
  • Ideal for application in machine tools, automatic equipment and robotics where wires and tubes are often required to flex freely during operating cycle
  • Suitable for exposure to all weather conditions.
