Nylon 6 multifilament yarn braided sleeving

  • Good resistance to acids in weak concentrations and most alkalies
  • Generally unaffected by organic solvents
  • Nylon is considered to be water repellant, but is actually hygroscopic and will absorb up to 2% moisture content at normal humidity making it more flexible
  • Resistance to abrasion and cut-through make it ideal for many industrial and electrical applications.
  • Most commonly used over wires, wire bundles and harnesses, cable assemblies, tubing and hoses where it provides a tough, durable protection
  • Tight weave construction prevents penetration by foreign objects while maintaining excellent flexibility
  • Can be used in marine applications because it is not attacked by mildew
  • Commonly used as a sleeve over filter tubes in certain chemical and water filtration units
  • Can be used as a base fabric and coated for electrical applications or as a reinforcing fabric in composite construction
