Features and Benefits:

  • It also has excellent resistance to damage by mechanical abrasion and repeated flexing.
  • The monofilaments will resist attack by salt water, oils and most common fuels and solvents.
  • Hilflex PG will exhibit self-extinguishing characteristics and will operate at temperatures within the range -70°C to +150°C.
  • Hilflex PG is a self-extinguishing expandable close weave, Halogen Free sleeving produced from UL Rated braided polyethylene terephthalate monofilaments. The special braid construction permits the sleeving bore to be expanded up to 300% and a particular feature is the retention of roundness.
  • The high bore expansion and retention of roundness makes Hilflex PG sleevings ideal for use in the manufacture of wiring looms, especially where cables are connected to moving parts and are constantly flexed. Expandable sleeving 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.

The Hilflex PG is cut utilising the hot melt method. This melts the monofilaments during the cutting action, bonding the braid crossover points and preventing fraying of the cut end. Our full range of braid cutters can be found here.
