The patented Bentley-Harris Plus treatment makes end termination neater and easier. The Plus treatment creates a webbing between the filaments of the sleeving to reduce end fray during installation and through the life of the product. Because of the fray-resistant properties of Expando® PT Plus, it can be cut with ordinary scissors, which reduces assembly time and eliminates the need for proper ventilation equipment required for hot-knife cutting.
Expando PT Plus protective oversleeve has many applications in the aeronautical, marine, electronic and general manufacturing industries. The ability of Expando PT Plus to retain flexibility at low temperatures makes it ideal for exposed applications in weather stations, navigation beacons, radar antennas, airborne and space systems.
