Extra heavy duty, tightly woven Aramid Armor is braided from aramid fibers, soft and pliable but with 5 times strength of steel on equal-weight basis.
Aramid Armor is perfect for bundling and protecting vulnerable components from the most extreme environmental conditions. The aramid fibers provide durability, pliability and extraordinary tensile strength.
It will not melt, burn or support combustion. The inherent strength and heat resistance of Aramid Armor provides performance that can not be worn or aged away. Typical uses include aerospace, marine, and automotive industry applications.
Aramid Armor sleeving is available in Yellow.Please note that Aramid Armor is degraded by ultraviolet light. Do not store in direct sunlight. Fluoescent lighting will cause discoloration, but will not affect fiber mechanical properties.

Cutting Aramid Armor Sleeving
Since Aramid Armor won't melt, and the fibers are very strong, neither a hot knife nor standard scissors will cut the sleeving properly. We offer a choice of shears specifically designed to easily cut Aramid Armor and other similar materials to the necessary length.
