Stronger than Steel, Soft & Pliable
Flexo Aramid Sleeving

Flexo Aramid is a soft, flexible sleeving that’s perfect for bundling and protecting vulnerable components from the most extreme environmental conditions. FA is braided from aramid fibers and has all of Flexo Aramid's well-known characteristics of durability, pliability and extraordinary tensile strength. Flexo Aramid fibers are up to 20 times stronger than steel fibers of equal diameter.

FA has excellent thermal stability, permitting long-term, continuous use at temperatures as low as -274°F and as high as 320°F. Short term exposure up to 572°F can be tolerated. Flexo Aramid does not melt or support combustion. FA sleeving provides extreme strength and durability, yet is lightweight and easy to install.

Flexo Aramid sleeving is available in Yellow.

Flexo Aramid 1
Flexo Aramid sleeving is strong, soft, lightweight and pliable, and is ideal for applications where extreme durability is mandatory.
Please note that Flexo Aramid is degraded by ultraviolet light. Do not store in direct sunlight. Fluoescent lighting will cause discoloration, but will not affect fiber mechanical properties.
