Braided Sleeving Frequently Asked Questions(2)
In what applications would braided sleeving be best to use?
Braided sleeving is intended for high temperature applications. Because the sleeving is intended for challenging environments, it is constructed to withstand extreme heat. Heat-treated sleeving is designed for applications up to 150. Other types of sleeving meet other temperature requirements. Vinyl-coated is designed for applications up to 130ºC, acrylic-coated may be used up to 155ºC, and silicone-coated is intended for applications up to 200ºC.
How do you use expandable?
Expandable braided sleeving is easy to use. Like other types of sleeving, simply push the expandable braided sleeving over fittings in order to expand its size. The expandable sleeving then forms a tight fitting cover that adjusts to all shapes and contours.
