Expandable braided sleeving is the best protection for hydraulic hoses, tubes and wiring harnesses. The interwoven mesh material provides a high degree of abrasion resistance in tough environments.
The flexible expandable material maintains a high degree of stability, even at high temperatures.
Hilflex PG - product overview
Hilflex PG is resistant against mechanical abrasion and repeated flexing, which makes it ideal for tough environments. The monofilaments are resistant to salt water, oils and most common fuels and solvents.
Expandable sleeving is used extensively as a harness sleeve, with the braid’s open construction allowing branch terminations to be made through the sleeve wall.
Hilflex braided sleeving can be cut using the hot melt method. This melts the monofilaments during the cutting action, bonding the braid crossover points and preventing fraying of the cut end.
