Ben-Har® 1151-FRB is a rugged, flame-retardant, silicone rubber coated fiberglass sleeving that provides excellent abrasion resistance. The specially formulated silicone rubber is extrusion coated, resulting in a reinforced sleeving that is superior to ordinary dip-coated sleeving and unreinforced rubber or plastic tubing.
- Difficult to ignite, with a very slow rate of burn travel and self-extinguishing properties
- Provides excellent abrasion protection
- Expands 25% or more in diameter without damage
Ben-Har® 1151-FRB provides abrasion protection for wiring systems in applications with temperatures ranging from -70°C to 200°C. It is ideal for protecting wiring systems in modern jet aircraft against abrasion, impact, harmful drip, splash, or spray. Ben-Har® 1151-FRB is resistant to hydraulic fluids as well as jet fuels. It is also used to insulate critical circuits and conductors, as a thermal barrier and as a wire bundling mechanism.
The suggested application is provided by Atkins & Pearce merely as an additional tool to assist the customer in making an appropriate electrical sleeving and tubing selection. This is only provided to serve as suggestions of electrical sleeving and tubing that may be appropriate based on certain criteria and should not be relied upon as determinative or as a substitute for customer testing.
Many variables exist in an electrical sleeving or tubing’s flexibilities, resistances, and treatment. Final electrical product selection should always be confirmed through the customer’s own testing process to determine if a particular product is the correct choice for a particular system. Atkins & Pearce is not responsible for selections made by the customer using any of the reference material provided. For optimal performance in specific systems, we strongly recommend that customers conduct exhaustive electrical tests in their own lab and consider retaining samples for their future internal reference. The importance of electrical product testing and data validation cannot be overstated.
As the customer, you and your company are responsible for appropriately testing all Atkins & Pearce electrical sleeving and/or tubing used in your application and for making the final selection based upon meeting appropriate safety and electrical standards. Atkins & Pearce makes no representation or warranty, expressed or implied, at law or in equity, in respect of the information provided, including, without limitation, with respect to merchantability or fitness for any particular purpose, which representations or warranties are hereby expressly disclaimed.
