It is an expandable, high performance sleeving that provides a high level of EMI (ElectroMagnetic Interference) shielding. Flexo Shield is cut and abrasion resistant, very flexible, strong and lightweight. With its high temperature aramid fiber core and special construction, Flexo Shield expands to fit over plugs and connectors and contracts back down for a perfect fit. Flexo Shield is great for applications where light weight and high performance are needed. Such applications may include computer systems, electronic office equipment, medical electronics, communications systems and many more. This product is intended for high flex, high temperature and environmentally tough conditions, making it appropriate for use in aerospace applications.
Flexo Shield is ideal in applications where light weight, flexibility, environments endurance and a high level of shielding are required. The product expands to accommodate plugs and connectors, and the smooth surface minimizes snags and internal abrasion.
To prevent fraying when cutting any metal braid, slip the sleeving over the intended application to get an accurate measurement, wrap the area to be cut with a couple of turns of tape, mark the cut and remove the sleeving. Use shears or serrated scissors to cut through the tape and sleeving. Don’t remove the tape until the sleeving is installed and you’re ready to terminate the end.
