F6's unique split, semi-rigid braided construction, makes it the ideal solution for situations where a clean and fast installation are of primary importance. The lateral split allows the tube to open up to accommodate a wide variety of bundling requirements, and the semi-rigid braid configuration simply closes around the installation without the necessary of any secondary sealing technique (velcro, tape, etc.)

Q:What diameter should I use?

Hello, I would like to wrap cables (Monitor, power cords, ethernet, I/O). Which diameter F6 wrap-around braided sleeving would suit me best?

Asked by Anonymous user on

A:Answers

  • - Thank you for your question. My suggestion would be for you to grab the bundle of cables you are trying to manage, measure it flat across the bundle and go by that measurement for your diameter.

    Fernando M. on

Q:Clarification on elongation

How do you achieve the "elongation" specification and how is that reflected in the number you supply? For example if I were to use a 1/4th in sleeve how much would it be able to expand widthwise before breaking?

Asked by Anonymous user on

A:Answers

  • - Thank you for your question. Elongation is achieved through machine pulling, however this is performed length-wise. As far as how wide you can go depends on the diameter of your application, however since this is a side entry sleeving, it would not break, but open.

    Works great on robot hoses and cables.

    By Dewayne in LR

    from Little Rock, AR

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about 1/4 in. per FT - F6 Braided Wrap-Around Sleeving:

    After trying several different wraps for the cables going to our robot's router head, I bought and installed this 2" split braided hose and have been very pleased at its performance. They are easy to install and easy to get at the wires or air hoses if I have a break. They endure well the abrasive nature of the constant movement of the cables. Even after years of wear and tear, they still have the spring to wrap around my cables. I use a few wire ties every 6 to 8 inches and they stay tight. Good Product.

      This product works great in a classroom of 30 PC's where the desk lids fold down and has pinched many mouse cords. This product will stop me having to replace mice now since the desk lid (hinges) won't be able to pinch the cables. Thank you for having this product available.

                  I got a few feet of this for my home theater and I am quite satisfied with it. It's easy to cut and it came with a small tool that made it easy to wrap around my cables. It looks good and feels soft. It's probably not strong enough to stand up to pet teeth or being stepped on a lot, but great for my project. I expect to buy more in the future.
