Constructed from a smooth glass fiber yarn, braided at high yield angles to allow for approximately 25% expansion and contraction.
Heavy wall braided glass fiber sleeve
Thermosleeve™ S is an expandable braided glass fiber sleeve capable of operating at a continuous temperature of 1000°F (538°C).
Designed to expand and contract by approximately 25% of its nominal size, the smooth glass fiber yarn is heat cleaned and coated with an acrylic saturant to eliminate loose fibers, enhance handling characteristics, and improve abrasion resistance.
Expandability creates custom size range
Due to its wide range of expansion and contraction, Thermosleeve™ S is available in just four nominal sizes that cover a complete range of diameters from 3/8″ (10 mm) up to 3-1/2″ (89 mm).
