EMF-FR Flame Retardant Expandable Braided Sleeving

Flame Retaradant Expandable Monofilament Braided Sleeving 

EMF-FR is braided from specially formulated flame retardant PET monofilaments.  It 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 below. 

Common uses include harness, cable assemblies, flat ribbon cable groupings, hoses, and tubing.  EMF-FR 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-FR easy to slip on, and the excellent flexibility makes it ideal for robotic and other continuous flex applications.

EMF-FR has a continuous operating temperature of 125oC, and excellent chemical and fungus resistance.  The sleeving is UL recognized as a VW-1 component.

EMF-FR cuts easily and cleanly with a hot knife.

RoHS Compliant
