Benefits of Expando Sleeving

In the world of wire and cable, there’s a wide range of products but what people often overlook are the cable management ones. One of these popular cable management products that receives very little attention is “Expando Sleeving”. Sycor Technology distributes expandable braided polyester tubing in a variety of sizes and colours. Expandable braided sleeving, widely referred to as "expando", also comes in fray resistant and flame retardant versions making it a versatile choice for protecting wire bundles, harnesses and tubing. Expando sleeving is an easy to use, cost-effective alternative to heat-shrink tubing and is designed with increased flexibility.

Expando Sleeving

Expando sleeving is exactly as it sounds, a braided sleeve but the expandable aspect is what makes it so unique. This form of sleeving is the perfect solution for many applications such as providing durable protection over tubing, hoses, cables, wire bundles, harnesses and flat ribbon cables. Expando sleeving is ideal against most oils, fuels, cleaners, solvents and chemicals. This is a great sleeving solution for use in machines, tools, robotics, automatic equipment and a strong choice when exposure to the elements is a major concern.
