Techflex® Flexo® Overexpanded Braided Sleeving

Perfect For Installing Over Cables With Large Connectors


What's special about this extra expandable braided PET?

  • Extra expandable braided sleeve can open nearly four times its original size, allowing easy installation over cables with large connector end faces - perfect for automotive or marine application.
  • Open weave pattern allows you to see through the sleeving to trace or identify cables or hoses in the bundle.
  • Flexible polyethylene material allows for bends and curves when running wires around corners or through tight places, and also protects the cable from being overexerted.

In the past, cables with large connector interfaces such as AC power extensions or VGA cables typically had to be covered with a side entry sleeving or the connectors had to be removed for braided sleeving to be installed. With Flexo® OverExpanded's large expansion ratio, it’s able to easily slide over large end faces and fit securely around cable bundles.

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.
