What's special about Aramid Armor®?

  • Woven from aramid fibers, this sleeving is 5 times stronger than steel for superior cable protection
  • Remains very flexible despite its strength, ensuring easy routing around bends
  • Expands up to 85% to accept large connectors or otherwise irregularly shaped assemblies
  • Resists acids, fuels, solvents, fire and cutting for high performance in the most brutal of environments
  • Ideal for use in marine, military, aerospace, and many other applications
  • Click for More Features
  • RoHS Compliant

Aramid Armor® Heavy Duty Cable Sleeving resists abrasion, cutting, chemicals, and high heat for superior performance in a plethora of applications. Despite its strength, Aramid Armor is very flexible and will have no problem conforming to the curves of your application, whether it's under the hood of a HMMV or behind the cockpit of a commercial airliner.

Please note that Aramid Armor is degraded by ultraviolet light. Do not store in direct sunlight. Fluoescent lighting will cause discoloration, but will not affect fiber mechanical properties.
