Cable Coverings.

Shielding the wire bundle from damage.

We carry five types of Cable Coverings in two temperature ranges.

The temperature ranges are up to 257F/125C. and up to 392F/200C.

The four types are:
  1. Split Loom*, rated to 257F/125C. This covering is inexpensive and has a lot of "cushion" to protect against abrasion and impact damage. It is also esay to use, and allows wires to be brought out and/or added at any point along the bundle.

  2. PET Woven Sleeving, rated 257F/125C. This covering is very strong and abrasion resistant, allows you to see what's in the bundle, and is the least bulky of the coverings. But it's more difficult to work with, because wires have to be inserted through the ends of the covering.

  3. Reclosable Velcro Sleeve, rated 257F/125C This covering has all the advantages of the PET woven sleeving, but the velcro allows easy access and changing of wires in the budle. But, it's expensive.

  4. Split PET Woven Sleeving, rated 257F/125C. Like the non-split woven sleeving above, this covering is very strong and abrasion resistant, allows you to see what's in the bundle, and is the least bulky of the coverings. But the split allows easy access and changing of wires. It holds itself closed with a nominal 25% overlap, but is still flexible enough to go around tight corners without buckling or coming open.

  5. Fiberglass/Silicone Rubber Sleeve, rated at 392F/200C. This covering is the highest temperature rating of any covering except straight woven fibergrass, but is much more abrasion resistant than the pure fibergrass coverings.

*Split Loom is also known as Split Conduit, Wire Loom, Convoluted Tubing, and probably other terms as well. They're all the same thing.

Split Loom is specified by ID & OD. The OD is typically 3/16" larger than the ID.
