Suflex® Flexicone® VPI
Suflex® Flexicone® VPI 15 kV is a double wall silicone rubber sleeve consisting of tightly braided fiberglass sleeve, coated with a dielectric layer of Flexicone® silicone rubber and an outer fiberglass braid firmly bonded to the Flexicone®. The outer fiberglass braid is lightly treated with acrylic resin to prevent fray, improve abrasion resistance and allow coating by the VPI resin.

- Lightly treated with acrylic resin to prevent end fray and improve abrasion resistance
Suflex® Flexicone® VPI 15kV is used for applications which require VPI processes and higher temperatures. It can be used for high voltage transformers as well as for aerospace and aircraft wiring leads. Suflex® Flexicone® VPI 15 kV allows for expansion to fit over difficult joints and terminals.
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.
