The unique properties of Techflex® Flexo® PET Expandable Braided Sleeving enable quick and easy installation over irregularly shaped areas, including large connectors. Flexo® PET expandable sleeving is readily used for cable management in the automotive, computer, industrial, scuba, electronics, A/V industries, and the military. This sleeving also works great around the home and office, for PC cable management or TV cables in your home theater.

Splice Free Spooling:
Some splices are normal during the braiding process. Usually, not more than one or two splices will be on any given spool. Ordering splice-free spools guarantees the maximum continuous yield on your spools. This option is suggested when ordering large lengths of sleeving or for important and precise projects. This treatment is most applicable in lengths that exceed 100 feet. In general, shorter lengths will be splice free as they come off the spools.

Heat Treated:
Flexo® Rounded is a premium process where Flexo® products are rounded for improved aesthetics, spring, and installation time. Rounding braided sleeving can retain its form for the lifetime of the product. It is commonly used in both retail and medical applications. NOTICE: Longer lengths of product may lose some of its shape when applied to or shipped on a spool. Adding the rounded option may increase the processing time of your order by up to 48 hours. Rounding services also require a minimum length of 25 ft. Not Available in all diameters.
