Ben-Har® Acryl sleeving is manufactured by coating a lightly heat-treated braided fiberglass sleeving with a dielectric film of thermosetting polyacrylate resin qualified for Class F (155°C) systems. It is resistant to acids and most organic solvents and is compatible with a broad range of wire enamels – acrylic, polyester, polyamide, polyimide and polyvinyl formal. Slight swelling is produced by aromatic solvents and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Ketones and esters have a softening effect.
- Withstands severe bending with no loss of dielectric properties
- Coating film will not flow upon application of heat
- Extremely flexible. Able to withstand assembly handling and mechanical stress
- UL listed under file #E63446 (Grade A, sizes up to 1")
- NEMA TF-1 Type 6
- MIL-I-3190/3 (Grade A)
Acrylic Coated Fiberglass Sleeving
Ben-Har® Acryl sleeving is manufactured by coating a lightly heat-treated braided fiberglass sleeving with a dielectric film of thermosetting polyacrylate resin qualified for Class F (155°C} systems. The tough acrylate film will withstand severe bending without loss of dielectric properties. It is compatible with a broad range of wire enamels – acrylic, polyester, polyamide, polyimide, and polyvinyl formal. By virtue of crosslinking the acrylate, film will not Row upon application of heat.
The acrylate film is flexible, allowing the sleeving to withstand rough assembly handling and mechanical stress. The coating film will not flow upon application of heat. Ben-Har® Acryl is resistant to alkalis and aliphatic hydrocarbons.
Ben-Har® Acryl resists up to 10 megarads of radiation dosage with no discernible effect. When tested in accordance with NEMA VS-1 , MIL-1-3190 method B, ASTM D-350, and UL 1441, Ben-Har® Acryl burns at less than 1.33 inches per minute.
Ben-Har® Acryl is widely used for its durability. Ben-Har® Acryl can be used for fractional and integral horsepower motors on leads and crossovers. Other uses exist in dry and oil-filled transformers, relays of many types, radio and television circuits, and welding apparatuses.
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.
