PT is braided from 10 mil polyethylene terephthalate (PET) monofilament yarns. The material has a wide operating temperature range, is resistant to chemical degradation, UV radiation, and abrasion. The sleeving cuts easily and cleanly with a hot knife and once installed, will beautify and protect any wire, hose or cable application.
The new woven construction provides superior elastic flexibility with unbeatable coverage over any harness assembly. Wire harness professionals will also appreciate the increased abrasion resistance F6® Woven Wrap will provide to their cable assemblies.
Protection of wiring systems on today’s modern aircraft requires a braided sleeving company that can take that protection to new heights. Techflex’s® F6® Nomex® (F6X) is the result of many years of R&D and insight into the aviation industry. F6X is made from genuine Nomex® for years of durable service. In your application, F6X maximizes harness coverage with minimum waste. The essential flame retardancy of Nomex® will meet even the most rigorous specifications and can be used in any major aircraft program.
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.
LEXO® ULTIMATE FR (UFR) sleeving is the ultimate choice for high tech applications such as aerospace, telecom, and military where flame retardance and durability are a top priority. All of the same great features of our Flexo® FR with new additional engineering to have it meet more specs and more standards. The high expansion rate of UFR makes for easy and efficient installs. Chemical resistant, high temperature stabile, and abrasion resistant.
Flame Retardant Flexo® Tight Weave sleeving was developed by and for aircraft manufacturers as a replacement for the Standard Grade FR. This sleeving material is constructed from tightly braided 9 mil flame retardant monofilament. The result is fuller coverage over wire harnesses. This allows for increased abrasion protection, which is a critical issue in the aviation industry.
Halar® self-extinguishing sleeving is used where flammability, high temperature endurance and low outgassing are primary concerns. Halar® is braided from 11 mil ethylene chlorotrifluoroethylene (ECTFE) copolymer monofilament.
PEEK (PolyEtherEther-Ketone) is a high performance advanced polymer with outstanding physical properties. PEEK is inherently flame retardant, with a V-0 flammability rating, will withstand continuous use in superheated water or steam up to 500°F, and resists most acids, solvents and bases.
