Flex-Guard YT

959 Series | Flex-Guard YT

Lightweight Ryton™ braided monofilament sleeving

  • Withstands high temperatures in continuous perfomance
  • Will not support a flame
  • Exceptional resistance to chemical attack at elevated temperatures (No chemical dissolves PPS readily below 204°C)
  • Open weave construction allows expansion above or below original diameter
  • Easy to apply and slip on quickly over irregular shapes
  • Extreme flexibility allows for ease of flexing in any direction
  • Often used as a filtration media in high temperature or aggressive chemical environments
  • Excellent choice for high temperature use over wires, wire bundles and harnesses, cable assemblies, flat ribbon cable, tubing and hoses where it provides durable protection
  • Open weave construction allows for complete drainage, prevents condensation and provides for dissipation of heat and moisture
  • Exceptional chemical resistance permits use in harsh fluid environments
