FLEX-GUARD FPE is a braided sleeving produced by braiding specially formulated flame retardant polyester PET (polyethylene terephthalate) monofilaments into a tubular sleeve. FLEX-GUARD FPE is a tough yet lightweight sleeving typically used to jacket cable assemblies, wire harnesses and industrial hoses. This sleeving is UL recognized as a VW-1 component, CSA approved and rated for use up to 125°C.

FLEX-GUARD FPE demonstrates excellent chemical and fungus resistance while providing good mechanical properties. Its resistance to abrasion and cut-through makes it ideal for many industrial and electrical applications. FLEX-GUARD FPE passes most tests for low flammability, limited flame travel and self extinguishing requirements, thus providing its UL recognition as an additional safety factor. FLEX-GUARD FPE has an open weave construction, which allows each size to enlarge to several times its original diameter. This expansion quality makes it easy to apply and slip on quickly over irregular shapes. Its extreme flexibility allows for easy flexing in any direction and it can neatly encapture a wide variety of items. FLEX-GUARD FPE retains this flexibility at low temperatures, considerably adding to its usefulness.

FLEX-GUARD FPE is commonly used over wires, wire bundles and harnesses, cable assemblies, flat ribbon cable, tubing and hoses where it provides a tough, durable protection. The open weave construction allows for complete drainage, prevents condensation and provides for dissipation of heat and moisture. Its excellent chemical resistance permits its use in harsh fluid environments including oils, salt water, fuels, most common cleaners and solvents and many chemicals. Its flexing capability makes the product ideal for application in machine tools, automatic equipment and robotics where wires and tubes are often required to flex freely during operating cycles. The low temperature properties of FLEX-GUARD FPE make it suitable for exposure to all weather conditions.

Please Note: Flex-Guard FPE is appropriate for two-fer construction and similar moderate-heat applications. We do not recommend it for high-heat applications such as lighting fixture leads. Please see Related Items below for high-heat alternates.
