It is an extremely lightweight, and cost effective product for aerospace, military and communication satellite applications. Expandable sleeving come in many colors, but black and natural are standard colors. Expandable sleeving products are produced from a wide variety of materials. Polyester sleeving possesses good qualities of dielectric, excellent tensile strength softness and elasticity. Our braided sleeving comes in black. Polyester sleeving is widely used as wiring insulation for motor, transformer and electrical machinery. Requires a hot knife to cut to length.

  • Designed to adjust and expand to irregular shapes
  • Extremely lightweight
  • Keeps it's flexibility under a wide range of temperatures
  • Made of polyester

 

Expandable sleeving stays flexible over a wide range of temperatures, adjusting to twisting and flexing without wrinkles, bends or bulges.
