When moderate protection from
flame spread and easy access are important, Flexo
Tight Weave FR is an ideal solution.
Weave FR - Flame Retardant sleeving was developed
by and for aircraft manufacturers as a replacement
for the Standard Grade FR. This sleeving material
is constructed from tightly braided 9 mil flame
retardant monofilament. The result is fuller
coverage over wire harnesses. This allows for
increased abrasion protection, which is a critical
issue in the aviation industry.
The 9 mil monofilament is
used instead of 10 mil in order to lessen the
additional weight that results when the
monofilament is tightly braided into sleeving
material. We manufacture sizes to accommodate
various wire harnesses up to 3” in diameter.
Flexo Tight Weave FR is only
available in Black with a White Tracer to
identify it as a flame retardant product.
