Flexo Chrome (CH) is so much more than just a hot looking wire and hose covering. Engineered by braiding heavy gauge 5 mil metallized polyester film (Mylar®) in combination with our clear polyethylene terepthalate (PET), we've produced a tough, durable and attractive solution for a wide range of applications, especially cosmetic ones. Even though it is very similar to our Mylar® product, it is heavier and has a much better abrasion resistance. The metallized Mylar® component is conductive, allowing Flexo Chrome to be used in shielding applications, as well as applications where the temperature exceeds 400° F.

Looks are deceiving

Comments about Protective Sleevings 1/4 In Chrome Braided Sleeving- Per Foot:

Purchased to cover Motorcycle covers. Looks great on the website but is actually more Mylar than metal. One metal strand for every two mylar strands. Looks very cheap because of this so I never installed it.

        Comments about Protective Sleevings 1/4 In Chrome Braided Sleeving- Per Foot:

        Be careful when applying heat shrink to the ends, this stuff melts easily. Also, I was pulling it through a rubber grommet, the grommet slipped out and this stuff got cut up. Not very abrasion resistant, snags easily.
