Flexo® Mylar Braided Sleeving Logo

Techflex® Flexo® Mylar Braided Sleeving

When your needs don’t call for the durability or toughness of our Chrome or Chrome XC sleeving, Flexo® Mylar sleeving is an ideal, economical alternative. Mylar is perfect for cosmetic applications and a wide variety of installation methods create dramatic results. Audiophile cable builders often use Mylar under other sleeving types to create a unique, custom visual effect. Applications that combine Flexo® Mylar with a more robust sleeving will withstand abrasion and general use and still have the custom, “Wow!” effect cable fabricators are looking for. Braided from thin metallic Mylar strips along with transparent PET monofilament, Mylar creates a sparkling, highly reflective effect. Flexo® Mylar can be used instead of Mylar sheets to wrap and bundle cables.



OPERATING TEMP: -94°F to 257°F (-70°C to 125°C)

MELT TEMP: 482°F/250°C

COLOR OPTIONS: Crystal Pearl, Gold, and Silver.



About Pearlescent Colored Sleeving

Spectacular highlights and unique effects are achieved when Mylar is combined with other sleeving types. A Pearlescent clear color sleeving allows the majority of underlying sleeving or colors to shine through, while giving a unique look and texture to the application. For a sleeving that makes your applications look good while also providing an amount of lightweight abrasion protection, you will want to use this type of Mylar sleeving.

Flexo® Mylar & Custom Fishing Lures

The unique and flexible nature of Flexo® braided sleeving makes it perfect for the body and main sections of flys, jigs, plugs, spinnerbait, worms, frogs, spoons, poppers, and other fishing lures. The shape of the flexo® sleeving can be made round for crab lures, frayed for shrimp, loose to give the appearance of a worm, rounded for poppers, or made tight for minnow lures. In addition to shape and texture, the threaded nature of flexo® allows hooks and needles to be easily threaded through, allowing for easy construction of fly as well as unique effects for hooks, feathers, and rubber legs to stick out exactly where desired.

Tips for Installing & Terminating Braided Sleeving

determining the diameter of your wire bundle
How To Determine What Diameter Sleeving You Need

Bundle the cords that you’ll be covering and measure the diameter of the bundle. If you want a snug fit, choose a braided sleeving option with a slightly smaller diameter than that of your cables. If you want a loose and flexible fit, choose a braided sleeving option with a diameter that is equal to or slightly larger than that of your cables. Keep in mind that braided sleeving loses 2% to 3% of its length when it expands. Be sure to plan accordingly!

Cutting Sleeving With A Hot Knife
How To Cut Sleeving 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. Watch our video on Using A Hot Knife To Cut Braided Expandable Sleeving.

How To Terminate Sleeving 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 Here.

How to Choose The Correct Braided Sleeving

A lot of factors go into determining the correct braided sleeving wire protection method for your project. We’ve broken it down to help you narrow your search:

  • Operating Temp: Is your wire harness going to be regularly exposed to extreme temperatures or possible flames? The operating temperature of your harness is a critical consideration when choosing sleeving to ensure that the sleeving you select can withstand the intended environment and provide adequate protection.
  • Flexibility & Expansion Ratio: Flexibility is an important factor if your wire harness will be snaking around a lot of corners or curves or is frequently moving. Expansion ratio refers to the amount by which the diameter of a braided sleeving can increase when stretched. The expansion ratio of braided sleeving can vary depending on the material it is made of and the construction of the braiding.
  • Material: Braided sleeving is available in a wide range of materials to provide different levels of abrasion, UV, and chemical resistance. Material also effects wire harness weight, EMI protection, and flexibility.
  • Cutting Tool: Checking the recommended cutting tool for a sleeving product allows you to ensure you have the tools necessary for the job. If using a hot knife is not feasible for you, be sure to look for sleeving options that can be cut fraylessly with scissors.
  • Sleeve Vs. Wrap: If you are consistently changing the wires & cables of your harness then a split wrap may be a better option for you than a solid sleeving product to installation is fast & easy.
  • Industry & Environment:Techflex® braided sleeving products are organized into categories based on the most common uses of each product. If you work in a specific industry, visiting the corresponding product category may be a fast way to see applicable sleeving options for your project.
  • Color choices: Braided sleeving is great for matching, color coding, and to identify wires & cables. If color coding is your goal, make sure the product you are considering offers enough colors for your project.
