Flexo® Super Duty (SD) Expandable Braided Sleeving is designed to provide a superior level of protection for cables/hoses used in unfavorable industrial or commercial applications. Hydraulic hoses and electrical cables found on trucks, automotive, robotics and other machinery are highly acceptable to abrasion damage. Using Flexo® SD, you can extend the life of cables/hoses by deflecting and resisting flying debris, abrasion, UV rays, moisture and harmful chemicals without sacrificing flexibility or strength in the process.

  • Braided from 0.020" Nylon® 6-6 polyamide monofilament to provide excellent versatility and flexibility for meeting specific bend radius or physical limitations of cables/hoses
  • Flexo SD has a FAR 25 flammability rating and higher tensile strength then Gorilla Sleeve while Gorilla Sleeve can withstand greater abrasion cycles (4,400) compared to Flexo SD (2,500)
  • Prevents structural breakdown and the fading of color in cables or hoses by resisting harmful UV rays in outdoor applications
  • Prevents moisture from becoming trapped, and protects against substances like gasoline, solvents, salt water and other chemicals that could cause corrosion and substantial damage over time
  • Economical and easy to use material outperforms most dual monofilament sleevings
  • RoHS compliant
  • Halogen-free
  • Made in the U.S.A.
