Customer supplied material can be overbraided with virtually any of our products. By braiding the sleeving directly onto wires or cables, overbraiding provides the ultimate custom look and feel to any application. Virtually any monofilament sleeving type can be overbraided, including any combination of colors and most construction types.
Our high-speed equipment and quick turnaround ensure minimum waste and virtually eliminate delay further down the manufacturing chain.
By altering the structure of the actual braid, we can adjust characteristics such as coverage and expandability, as well as create unique visual effects
Note the difference between the standard 3/3 braid on the left and the custom 1/1 braid on the right. Same monofilament, but with two completely different sets of properties, and two very different visual styles.
Our team will work with you to engineer the perfect product for your application.
Custom Colors & Sizes
Many of our current stock solid and multiple colors started out as custom products specified by customers.
We can color match virtually any Pantone® spot color in almost any combination of braid patterns and color combinations. Additionally, we can braid these custom colors into custom diameters to meet unique customer specifications.
To accommodate strictly specified clean room uses such as aerospace and biomed, we can remove any oils and residue accumulated on the material during manufacturing. After cleaning, we will either bag or respool material on new, clean spools, using oil-free respooling equipment and individually wrap each spool to minimize any recontamination of the material during transit.
Custom Die Cutting
Techflex has the capability to create precision shapes and holes creating an infinite varieties of protection possibilities for you applications. With cut and sealed holes, cables can break out from the bundle at predetermined locations. Contact your account rep today for engineering assistance.
Flip & Stitch Ends
Several high temperature sleevings including Insultherm Ultraflex Pro and Flexo Silica Sleeve can now be professionally finished with inverted and then sewn ends. Lengths can vary according to your requirements, Parts can be inverted only at the end or can be inverted completely for a full double insulation.
