Stainless Steel Braided Sleeving

Ultimate in Protection from Temperature & Abrasion


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.
  • Stainless steel construction won't rust or discolor, and offers great Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) protection for cables and wires.
  • Extremely high melting temperature makes this a great sleeving for automotive applications.

Protect hoses and cables from wear, corrosion and blowouts with a Stainless Steel braided hose sleeve. Avoid the expense and limited selection involved in a custom steel-braid covered hose. With this hose sleeve, 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.

Please note: Sleeving is pulled tight during the manufacturing process, so the diameter may seem small when received; simply push to expand for larger diameter.

    You give "flat" dimensions. Does this mean the sleeving has bends in the wire that won't completely come out? Can you multiply the flat dimension by 2, then divide by Pi and get an accurate diameter dimension? Why don't you list the diameter?
