What's special about Stainless Steel Braided Sleeving?

  • Superior abrasion, chemical, and UV resistance make it great for outdoor applications (Fiber, RG6, CAT5e)
  • Great for expansion joints where constant movement requires a flexible and indestructible covering
  • Won't rust or discolor, so the appearance will never fade or change
  • Sleeving is pulled tight during the manufacturing process, so the diameter may seem small when received; simply push to expand for larger diameter

Protect hoses and cables from wear, corrosion and blowouts with a Stainless Steel braided sleeve. Custom hoses overbraided with stainless steel can be quite expensive, selections are often limited, and delivery times lengthy. With this sleeving, you can take any standard or custom hose, slip the stainless steel braid over it, hide the cut ends under your clamps and achieve the same look and protection provided by custom overbraided hoses at a fraction of the cost.

Great EMF Shielding

By Global Skywatcher

About Me Gearhead

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Great EMF Protection
  • Very strong

Cons

  • None really

Best Uses

  • Chemtrail Timelapse

Comments about 3/4 in. Stainless Steel Braided Sleeving per foot:

I am performing long-term sky timelapse of chemical trails (chemtrails). Before using this shielding, I was getting errors in my Canon camera USB cable a couple times a week which would lock up the timelapse process. After wrapping the USB cable that goes from the computer to the camera with this stainless shield and then clipping it to the computer's ground with an alligator connector, all data errors have stopped. It's been working perfectly since.

    Comments about 3/4 in. Stainless Steel Braided Sleeving per foot:

    A little difficult to use. I was a first timer. Excellent idea to use shrink tube to do the ends. I did three different diameters,five different hoses, and a total of about twelve feet of hose. Removing and reinstalling the hoses plus doing the covering took eleven hours. The outcome was perfect.

    Comments about 3/4 in. Stainless Steel Braided Sleeving per foot:

    Stainless Steel sleeving is one of the strongest abrasion resistant braids available for purchase by the foot. Even though this sleeving is on the expensive side, the sacrifice at the wallet is worth protecting my cables. I cannot afford to replace the cables on my computer, TV, Xbox, and Wii, so protecting them is my best option.

    The worst part of installing this sleeving is the fraying ends. Forcing a plug or connector through the opening of the sleeving causes a great deal of fraying and in my case lost me about a two-inch length of the sleeving. I fixed this by taping the ends of the braided sleeving and trimming off the frayed tips.
