FLEX-TUFF™

Expandable Braided Sleeving

FLEX-TUFF™ is a heavy-duty open weave construction that allows for complete drainage while preventing condensations and providing dissipation of both heat and moisture. This sleeving is ideal for use in industrial hoses, harnesses, and cable assemblies that are exposed to excessive abrasion applications. It is rated to 150°C and has excellent resistance to hydrocarbons, common automotive oils and fuels, aromatic solvents, and refrigerants.
