Flame Retardant Expandable Braid
Automotive - Hilflex PG FR provides mechanical protection and abrasion resistance for hydraulic hoses, tubing and wiring harnesses.
The expandable nature of the braid affords ease of fitting over components with the spring back of the produce precluding other fixings. The sleeve holding itself in situ.
Cable Protection - The high bore expansion and retention of roundness makes Hilflex PG FR sleevings ideal for use in the manufacture of wiring looms, especially where cables are connected to moving parts and are constantly flexed.
Harnesses - Hilflex PG FR is used extensively as a harness sleeve, the open construction of the braid allowing branch terminations to be made through the sleeve wall, which greatly speeds manufacture.
Cutting - Hilflex PG FR is cut utilising a hot cutting knife. This melts the mono-filaments during the cutting action, bonding the braid crossover points and preventing fraying of the cut end.
Features and Benefits:
Hilflex PG FR is an expandable flame retardant, close weave sleeving produced from braided polybutylene terephthalate mono-filaments. The special braid construction permits the sleeving bore to be expanded up to 300% and a particular feature is the retention of roundness.
Hilflex PG FR will exhibit self-extinguishing characteristics and will operate at temperatures within the range -70°C to +150°C. Hilflex PG FR has excellent resistance to damage by mechanical abrasion and repeated flexing. The mono-filaments will resist attack by salt water, oils and most common fuels and solvents.
