Nylon Monofilament (NY) expandable sleeving is commonly used in the automotive industry to protect hoses and wires from excessive wear. Vibration and movement can tear automotive hoses to pieces, but NY can increase hose life up to 300%. This lengthened life span is recognized in terms of reduced maintenance; a professional, attractive and durable appearance and greater customer satisfaction.
NY is braided from RoHS compliant 12 mil Nylon 6-6 polyamide monofilament. NY provides a full coverage, high abrasion resistant sleeving for assemblies exposed to excessive wear. Standard color is black.
NY is the choice for professional harness applications for its economy and ease of installation. The sleeving expands up to 150% to easily slip over plugs and connectors. The smooth Nylon fibers and tight construction also reduce abrasion damage caused by hoses and harnesses rubbing against the inside wall of the sleeving. The wide range of available diameters and ease of installation ensure that any harnessing design can be realized economically and quickly and provide a long lasting and cost effective solution.
