Clean Cut FR
F6 Woven FR
Flexo Wrap FR
Clean Cut FR has all of the same qualities that make our standard Clean Cut so easy to cut and install, with the added advantage of a flame inhibitor to provide an extra level of safety in certain applications.
Under normal conditions, CCF will quickly self-extinguish and minimize flame spread and incidental damage to surrounding components.
The combination of flame retardance, ease of installation and nearly complete coverage makes CCF an ideal solution for many industrial and engineering applications.
F6 Woven FR Wrap has all the same qualities that our F6 Woven Wrap, with the added advantage of a flame inhibitor to provide an extra level of safety in certain applications. It utilizes many of the same characteristics as our original F6 split braided sleeving including the easy wrap around design and the extra overlap to insure complete protection of important electronic communication nd power systems.
The new woven construction provides superior elastic flexibility with unbeatable coverage over any harness assembly. Through a unique process, the blend of monofilament and multifilament polyester fibers are formed into a sleeving with memory that causes the sleeve to self-close, and also snap back when opened.
The combination of flame retardance, ease of installation and complete coverage makes F6 Woven FR an ideal solution for many industrial and engineering applications.
Flame Retardant Flexo Wrap provides the same hook and loop wire management flexibility as our standard Flexo Wrap along with the added safety feature of an organic flame inhibitor to provide an additional level of security.
Flexo Wrap FR is a safe, economical solution for a wide range of cable management applications where moderate levels of flame protection are needed.
Flexo Wrap FR is available in Black with a White Tracer to identify it as a flame retardant product.
