Made from highly flexible continuous filament E Glass.
Heat treated to removed starches, oils and other impurities that naturally occur in glass.
Impregnated with acrylic resin binder to provide fray resistance, and excellent resistance to moisture, fungus and chemical attack.
Thermal Characteristics - UL Thermal Class S&C (240°C+) (this is the maximum thermal class UL will allow for fiberglass products) - Maintains 1/2 its strength at temperatures up to 750°C. Some degree of protection up to the melting point of glass (1400°C).
Flame Resistance - Passes UL 1441 (VW-1). Will not burn. NEMA TF-2 flame retardant
Available in NEMA sizes #24 (AWG) to 1".
Standard wall thickness is 0.015" (1/64"). Heavy wall thickness is 0.030" (1/32")
Dielectric Grade C-3: Standard wall provides up to 300V space factor insulation (although no dielectric breakdown is guaranteed). Heavy wall provides 600V (also, no dielectric is guaranteed).
Our high quality fiberglass sleeves equivalent to Ben-Har Exflex, Ben-Har Exflex 1500 (heavy wall), Varglas Non-Fray Type HO, Hilec 710C, Hilec 720C (heavy wall), Alpha Wire PIF-240. Fiberglass braided sleeving is commonly used in high temperature applications such as ovens, stoves, coffee makers, toasters, and other small heating appliances. With a good amount of flexibility, and a fair amount of expandability, fiberglass sleeving can be used for insulation of wires (up to 600V insulation), irregular shapes (e.g. coil insulation on rotating equipment), and thermal protection of insulated wires (e.g. fiberglass can thermally protect PVC jacketed wire that rests very close to a heat source).
