Product Description


PTO0.38BK - Flexo PET Overexpanded 1 End - 3/8" - Black

Flexo Overexpanded has many uses where inexpensive bundling and management is the principal consideration. Created to provide a fast and easy solution for automotive and marine wiring, Overexpanded expands to nearly 4 times its nominal diameter, easing installation over large plugs and connectors. The open construction allows the underlying harness covering to show through for a unique and attractive assembly. The material cuts easily with a hot knife for a fray resistant end.

Product Specifications

3/8 Inch Diameter Sleeving

3/8 Inch (9.525mm) diameter Overexpanded braided sleeving expands up to 1 1/2". It can be used to protect or identify cables, automobile hoses, or wire bundles in industrial, electronic, and mechanical applications. If you need to differentiate assembly cables, protect power cords from abrasion, or provide a better look to bundles in the work place or at home, use a length of this 3/8" Flexo Overexpanded PET braided sleeving.

Optional : Rounding

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.

Optional : Splice Free Spooling

Some splices are normal during the braiding process. Usually, not more than one or two splices will be on any given spool. Ordering splice-free spools guarantees the maximum continuous yield on your spools. This option is suggested when ordering large lengths of sleeving or for important and precise projects.


Product How-To's

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's Learning Center.

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's Learning Center.

Installing with the Rapid Installer Tool

The Rapid Sleeving Install Tool eliminates the mind-numbing process of applying expandable sleeving to a cable bundle. With the Flexo Sleeving Rapid Install Tool, the process is dramatically speeded up, considerably reducing labor costs. The system is simple to set up and interchangeable components accommodate diameters up to 2". Simply slide the desired length of sleeving over the properly sized pipe, and insert the desired wires or cables. The machine will quickly unravel the sleeving over the application and give it a smooth finish.

Organizing with Spools and Displays

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.

What is Flexo OVerExpanded Braided Sleeving?

Flexo PET Overexpanded expands to nearly 400% of its nominal diameter to allow easy installation over large connectors and will maintain its flexibility over a wide range of temperatures. The sleeving resists damage from common chemicals, abrasion and UV light, and will protect wires, hoses and cables even in harsh environmental conditions. Overexpanded’s open construction allows the harness, cable, or hose to show through and can create a unique effect if combined with another sleeving

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!
