What is Spiral Wrap?
Spiral wrap is a wire management product that efficiently bunches wire and cable together. Spiral wrap is spirally cut tubing designed to hold wire bundles while still allowing for flexibility and access to the cables. The expandable wrap tubing organizes your component pieces and helps prevent individual pieces from straying. Spiral wrap tubing allows for changes and repair of electronic wire and cable and is effortlessly reinstalled, making it a popular choice over a standard tape.
What applications use Spiral Wrap?
Spiral wrap tubing may be used for numerous wire and cable applications. It is most commonly utilized in wire harnesses and for cable bundling. It is also used in applications with multiple cables or in applications where possible puncturing of the cable is a concern.
