Aramid Armor sleeving
Soft, Lightweight, and Extraordinarily Strong

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.
