Flexo Tightweave FR
Flame Retardant Tight Braid For Fuller Coverage

Flame Retardant Flexo Tight Weave sleeving was developed by and for aircraft manufacturers as a replacement for the Standard Grade FR. This sleeving material is constructed from tightly braided 9 mil flame retardant monofilament. The result is fuller coverage over wire harnesses. This allows for increased abrasion protection, which is a critical issue in the aviation industry.

The 9 mil monofilament is used instead of 10 mil in order to lessen the additional weight that results when the monofilament is tightly braided into sleeving material. We manufacture sizes to accommodate various wire harnesses up to 3” in diameter.

*Available Colors: TB = Black w/White Tracer or TW = White w/Black Tracer
