Suflex® Astra® 601

Electrical Sleeving & Tubing

Suflex® Astra® 601 tubing is an extruded polyvinylchloride tubing manufactured to withstand temperatures as low as -70°C.  The unpigmented product exhibits very high clarity, allowing easy identification of legends and color-coded wires jacketed with the product.  The low temperature characteristics of Astra® 601 tubing produce unusual flexibility and high cut-through resistance with maintenance of dielectric strength.
