Flexo PET logoFlexo PET
A Versatile Bundling & Protection Solution

The FLEXO PET (PT) grade is used in electronics, automotive, marine and industrial wire harnessing applications where cost efficiency and durability are critical.

The unique braided construction and wide expandability allows quick and easy installation over large connectors and long runs.

PT can be found in applications ranging from small office/home office to high tech wire and cable harnesses. The wide range of available colors and sizes allows easy and systematic color coding in complex wiring and cabling schemes.

PT is braided from 10 mil polyethylene terepthalate (PET) monofilament yarns. The material has a wide operating temperature range, is resistant to chemical degradation, UV radiation, and abrasion.

The sleeving cuts easily and cleanly with a hot knife and once installed, will beautify and protect any wire, hose or cable application.

Clean Cut - Scissor Cut For Easy, Fray Resistant Installation in Shop or Field

By adjusting the physical characteristics of the polyethylene terepthalate filaments,
the engineers at Techflex have produced a product with the same specifications
of our PT with the unique advantage of being able to cut the material with
ordinary scissors and still maintain an extraordinarily fray-resistant end.

FLEXO CLEAN CUT (CC) is ideal for field installers and other situations where
access to a hot knife is impossible. CC's fray-resistant properties allows frequent
expansion at the cut end without unraveling. When cut with a hot knife, CC produces
a virtually frayless end.

Sizes larger than 1 1/2” may be available. Contact an Account Representative for additional information.

F6 Split Braided SleevingF6 Logo
Flexible, Semi-Rigid Wrappable Split Braided Tube

F6's unique split, semi-rigid braided construction makes it the
ideal solution for situations where ease of installation is of primary
importance. The lateral split allows the tube to open up to accommodate a wide
variety of bundling requirements, and the semi-rigid braid configuration simply
closes around the entire installation without the need for any additional fasteners
(velcro, tape, etc.)

The 10 mil PET braid is lightweight, quiet and flexible. The 25% edge overlap (at nominal diameter) allows coverage around inline plugs, connectors and splices.

F6 will bend to a tight radius without distorting or splitting open and, unlike full rigid tubing, will not impair or affect the flexibility of harnesses.

Stainless Steel Braided SleevingFlexo Stainless Steel Logo

Braided Stainless Steel, Pre-Rounded For Installation Ease

Nothing protects hoses from wear and blowout quite like real Stainless Steel braid. It looks great in any application and is as strong as, well, steel. But, custom hoses overbraided with stainless steel are expensive, selections are often limited and production and delivery times can be an issue.

Now, you can take any stock or custom hose, slip a length of Flexo Stainless over it, hide the cut ends under your clamps and have the same look and protection as custom overbraided hoses at a fraction of the cost.

Flexo Stainless cuts with shears or serrated scissors (pg. 42), is pre-rounded for easy, slip on installation and is available in diameters and expansion ranges to accommodate virtually any common hose or wire application.

Non Skid FlexoNonSkid Logo
Increased Friction On Smooth Surfaces Minimizes Slipping & Accidents

FLEXO NON-SKID (NS) is a unique combination of our standard PET material braided together with a matching thread of a high-friction polymer.

NS is engineered primarily for wire and cable management in smooth floor, high traffic environments such as broadcast studios where someone might inadvertently step on a cable snake and slip.

As long as there’s no excessive pressure on cables protected with NS, the entire snake glides easily and quietly along the floor. When local pressure is applied, such as someone stepping on the cable, the high friction material comes in contact with the floor and reduces the possibility of the cable sliding out from underfoot.

NS is substantially less “slippery” than our regular PET, yet provides the same level of flexibility and protection from cable wear and abrasion.
