This expandable sleeving is used in high temperature, flame resistant wire harnesses and cable assemblies. Flexo PPS is an extremely lightweight sleeving, resistant to high temperatures and virtually impervious to solvents. Flexo PPS is ideal for aerospace, telecom and military applications and meets many engineering goals including; chemical resistance, high temperature stability, zero moisture absorption, excellent dimensional stability and ultra-low wear.
Flexo PPS is braided from 8 mil flame resistant PolyPhenylene Sulfide (PPS) monofilament fibers. PPS offers the broadest resistance to chemicals of any advanced engineering plastic. The material resists all known solvents below 392°F (200°C) and is inert to steam, strong bases, fuels and acids.
Flexo PPS is ideal in satellite applications where weight and chemical stability are of primary importance. Additionally, flame resistance, high strength and low weight make PPS sleeving the first choice in cutting edge aeronautic design specifications.
