EMF-HT High Temperature Expandable Braided Sleeving

High Temperature Expandable Monofilament Sleeving

EMF-HT is braided from Halar® (E-CTFE) Ethylene-Chlorotrifluoroethylend copolymer  monofilaments with a continuous operating temperature of 150oC, and excellent chemical and fungus resistance.  The sleeving has a rating of VW-1 for flame resistance.  EMF-HT is used in military and aerospace applications for its flame retardant and high temprature properties.

 EMF-HT 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.  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.
