Polyester Expandable Sleeving

Polyester Expandable Sleeving

Polyester Expandable Sleeving

Allied Wire and Cable supplies a wide variety of Expandable Sleeving products to a variety of industries. Expandable Sleeving offers an easy, affordable alternative to heat shrink tubing. This type of sleeving is convenient because it adjusts to fit comfortably over wire and cable components without heat-shrinking. This saves you the hassle of dealing with the extra hassle and cost of heat shrink equipment.

Expandable sleeving is generally used whenever a cable or wire requires additional external protection in tough or hazardous environments. It can be used for everything from marine applications to automotive, electronic, and industrial applications. It may also be used for cable bundling or to add aesthetic appeal. Like heat shrink tubing, this sleeving can also be used to cover irregular shapes. All of the sleeving products listed on this page meet the MIL-I-631D specification and are available in RoHS compliant versions.

Expandable Braided Sleeving is used for lightweight, flexible routing, or as a jacket for flat cable. Like other expandable sleeving products, this braided sleeving expands and contracts to provide grip on different parts and to allow for easy install. It also resists rot, fungus, abrasion, and cut-through.

Polyester Expandable Sleeving is used for wire bundling, harnessing, and unlimited breakouts. Velcro-like enclosures allow you to open expandable polyester sleeving easily. Keep in mind that this polyester sleeving must be cut and sealed with a hot knife to prevent fraying.

If you don't want to use a hot knife, Non-Fraying Expandable Braided Sleeving is a good choice. Non-fraying braided expandable sleeving protects wire, cable, and hoses. It also resists fungus, flame, chemicals, and solvents. Because this sleeving does not fray, it can be used on automated cutting machines.
