Terminating with Heatshrink Tubing
Heatshrink Tubing is the ideal way to create a tight, professional finish on any wire, hose or cable management project. Once shrunk, the tubing will hold its reduced state, even at elevated temperatures. This application can be used to protect, color code, brand, or secure ends or sections of braided sleeving. A Heat Gun is required to properly apply heatshrink tubing. You can find a guide to the proper technique for working with heatshrink tubing at Wirecare.com's Learning Center.
Why Use Braided Sleeving?
We believe sleeving is the best of all worlds when it's time to deal with harnesses, snakes and bundles, and we want to convince you that some type of sleeving will be the perfect balance of economy, ease of use and long term usability for your applications. Unlike other products designed for cable management, expandable sleeving is quick and economical to install on applications of virtually any length. In addition, the reduced weight and volume of sleeving is negligible to the overall diameter and weight of the application. The visual appeal of braided sleeving is an important factor as well. Many companies and individuals the world over use Techflex brand braided sleeving for their wires, tubes, cords, and more. For professional applications, home installations, and even arts and crafts projects, Techflex braided sleeving is your best solution!
Rounding the spooled sleeving opens it up and “sets” it so that it remains open along the entire length. The sleeving retains all of its original properties, and installation is even easier for long runs of wire or cable.
NOTICE: Longer lengths of product may lose some of its shape when applied to or shipped on a spool. Adding the rounded option may increase the processing time of your order by up to 48 hours.
Cutting With a Hot Knife
To ensure a frayless, professional end on any installation, it is recommended that expandable braided sleeving be cut with a hot knife, rope cutter, or similar tool. We offer a wide variety of Hot Knives for different applications, including handheld knives, table knives, and replacement blades. You can find a guide to properly using a hot knife for the cutting of braided sleeving at Wirecare.com's Learning Center.
Organizing Spools and Display
Spool and product management is now more efficient than ever. Our new display/dispenser rack allows easy control of sleeving and provides a controlled system of dispensing directly from the spools. The spools drop into the slots and turn freely for dispensing. Full visibility ensures easy management of remaining inventory and simple drop-in replacement of empty spools. The spools themselves can be used with or without the display racks, allowing for customized storage and easy use of long lengths of braided sleeving.
