Ben-Har® Ex-Flex 1500

Ben-Har® Ex-Flex 1500 is a braided fiberglass sleeving, with a 1/32” heavy wall, which is heat treated and saturated to prevent end fray and increase ease of handling.  This product was developed to meet end fray resistance needs of most assembly operations and for high temperature applications where ordinary film varnish and impregnants cannot be used.  If subsequent service or accidental temperatures exceed 240°C, the saturant will gradually volatize without toxic or excessive fumes or smoke.
