VSR10 Fibreglass Braided Sleeving

Highly flexible silicone impregnated braided glass sleeving that offers protection with excellent handling properties and high temperature capabilities.

What is Braided Sleeving?

Braided sleeving with its flexible and durable design provides an effective and easy to use cable management solution for containing individual cables or bundles of cables. Cable sleeving also offers excellent protection to cables and wires against damage caused by abrasion from sharp edges, high impacts, vibration and mechanical stress. Depending on the material used, braided sleeving also protects the cable or wire from high temperatures, chemicals and solvents.

Features and Benefits


Features and benefits
• Resistant to most chemicals and solvents
• Highly flexible - will bend without flattening around a diameter less than 10 times its bore
• Highly resilient - recovers roundness after being flattened
• Good fray resistance when cut
• Low smoke and fume, zero halogen
• High oxygen index
• Will not ignite
• UL recognised - File No. E151092

Applications

This braided cable sleeving is lightweight and flexible and provides a protective covering and insulation for electrical wires, cables and flexible conduit and can also be used as a cable management sleeve to keep your wires tidy. The unique thermal properties and high temperature protection that this braided sleeve offers make it ideal for use in areas where low fire hazard properties are required. These areas include public places where it is often used for mass transit cable protection and underground applications. This cable sleeve can also be used in high temperature rated domestic appliances and for wire harness in the automobile industry.

Applications

High temperature insulation
Cable harnessing in areas of high temperature ie heaters
Mass transit systems - suitable for underground use
Areas where high fire performance is critical ie public places

How Do You Install Braided Cable Sleeving?

Select the cable sleeving diameter you require and cut the sleeve to the correct length, sciissors can be used but if the sleeve is not cut correctly it can fray. To prevent fraying use a hot cutting tool such as a hot knife or a soldering iron with a sharp tip. Slice the cable braid using even pressure to leave an evenly sealed edge on the material. Once the sleeve is cut to size simply push and slide the cable sleeving into place over the cable or fittings.

Warning

  • Glass fibres can cause irritation to sensitive skin.
