Expandable Monofilament Braid (EMF)

EMF - Expandable MonoFilament

EMF is a tough, lightweight jacketing material for bundling wire or cable. It can be used as abrasion protection or as a cosmetic jacket for wire and cable groups. The sleeving is braided from individual strands of monofilaments to form a tube, which will expand in diameter to accommodate a wide range of wire/cable bundles. The nominal sizes and usable size ranges are listed in the individual datasheets.

Common uses include wire harnesses, cable assemblies, flat ribbon cable groupings, hoses, and tubing. The sleeving is durable enough to provide cut-through and abrasion resistance, and because it is an open weave design, it prevents condensation, and allows easy visual inspection. The expansion characteristic makes EMF easy to slip on, and the excellent flexibility makes it ideal for robotic and other continuous flex applications.

EMF is available in many different monofilament materials, allowing a wide rage of applications from general purpose, to high temperature or flame retardant, to extreme environmental conditions using high performance polymers.
