What's the Big Deal About Insulation?

By: CableOrganizer®

Put simply, for some environments, cables just can't withstand the harshness on their own. For example, if you are driving your car, boat, or flying a plane, you are constantly relying on many different wires and cables to get you from point A to point B safely. These kinds of crafts often reach high temperatures and it's important to do as much as possible to keep your engine safe.

Our high temperature and flame-retardant sleeves are specifically built for the most extreme conditions. Most of them are made of durable fiberglass, and some can even withstand temperatures up to 3,000° Fahrenheit. That's no joke! Beside heat, we have braided sleeves that can keep cables safe from damage, chemicals, and water.


When you are looking to purchase insulation or sleeving, it is important to choose the best one for your needs. Expandable braided sleeving is a great option for keeping cables organized in situations where flammability and high temperature endurance are of concern. Some types offer a little less hardcore protection but are perfect for high temperatures and low voltage applications like commercial and home appliances.

When it comes to caring for your car, it's clearly super important to make sure you are purchasing the perfect product that will fit your needs flawlessly. The Thermashield® heat resistant sleeve protects surfaces, cables, wires, assemblies, and more against extreme heat, and it is super easy to install. It is perfect for your vehicle because it resists gasoline, chemicals, saltwater, and UV rays.

Fiberglass sleeving is heavy duty and can withstand truly scorching heat. It's great for environments like factories, labs, foundries, welding shops, and other places where high heat is a concern. It is also resistant to chemicals, solvents, moisture, abrasion, vibration, and electricity — so you can truly use it in any environment.

Side entry wrap sleeves like Flexo® F6® are the ideal balance of protection and accessibility. It can be used in any application from aircraft wiring to lighting. It installs super easily. All you do is wrap it around your cables and you are good to go. When you need to access them next time, you simply unwrap the sleeving, remove or add cables, or perform maintenance on them.

Metal and shielding sleeves are important for grounding, as well as electrical transmission. Some types are designed to defend against electromagnetic interference (EMI), radio frequency interference (RFI), and electrostatic discharge (ESD).

There are specialty sleeves that were engineered for various purposes. Some are meant for noise reduction, others to avert skidding and trip hazards.

Abrasion resistant sleeves are for heavy duty applications, such as an industrial environment, and for use on equipment on job sites. Flexo® F6® Heavy Duty Wrap Around Sleeving combines the design of traditional Flexo® F6® with heavier protection against chafing and abrasion on cables. Flexo® Rodent Resistant is a versatile heavy duty sleeve with properties that keep rodents away from wiring, whether it is in an automotive, home, or industrial wiring application.
