What's special about this metal braided sleeving?

  • Provides electrostatic and electromagnetic shielding
  • Attenuates electrical field interference
  • Provides enhanced abrasion and cut-through resistance when compared to thermoplastic braided sleeving (great for places where animals may be a problem)
  • Provides added shielding from radio frequency interference (RFI) in 0.5 MHz to 1.7 MHz range

Whether you have rodents, cats, dogs, or other animals biting at your wires or a need for EMI/RFI shielding, our braided metal sleeving could be the answer for you. Braided from tin (Sn) coated copper (Cu), it is both flexible and strong, with superior EMI protection. EMI/RFI is commonly referred to as electrical noise. Tinned copper wire shielding sleeves are an ideal shielding material for short-run cables. It can provide added shielding in retrofit applications, and is much more flexible and much less susceptible to cracking than foil solutions.

Questions & Answers

Question:

size - What size of Braided Metal sleeve would accept 12/2 or 14/2 romex with a ground wire. Would I need 1/2 inch or larger. Thanks. Phil

Asked by Anonymous user on 08/25/2014 2:48 PM

Answer:
  • - Thank you for your question. While 1/2" is probably enough, I would go a little bigger and you can always make it tighter.

Question:

I have a marine sonar transducer cable that is 3/16" with a 5/8" plug. What braided metal sleeve size will expand enough to pass the plug through and collapse to the cable size? Thanks, Wayne purdum43@aol.com

Asked by Anonymous user on 01/1/2017 6:27 PM

Answer:
  • - Hello Wayne, Unfortunately we do not offer an expandable metal sleeving that would fit the dimensions you are referencing.
