MATERIALS: Tyco Electronics’ Raychem Versaflex polyester sleeves for mechanical protection of wire and cables have been launched in North America. The sleeves are competitively priced and offer extreme flexibility and strength through a braided design that allows for easy expansion and contraction of the sleeves while retaining tension.
The RoHS-compliant product line easily conforms to irregularly shaped products or substrates without the need to heat-shrink. The sleeves do not retain heat or moisture and offer resistance to abrasions. Specific applications include cable bundling and protection of wire harnesses and hoses in the industrial, commercial and rail industries.
Product offering includes flame-retardant and non-flame retardant versions, which are both available in multiple sizes. The flame-retardant version meets UL VW-1 flammability requirements.
