Spando-flex Represents a Wide Range of Expandable and Wear-Resistant Sleeves

Short Description:

Spando-flex® represents an extensive series of expandable and abrasion protection sleeves designed to prolong lifetime of wire/cables harnesses in the automotive, industrial, rail and aerospace market. Each single product has its own specific purpose, whether lightweight, protective against crush, chemically resistant, mechanically robust, flexible, easily fitted or thermally insulating.

The entire product range has been built by using extremely high-quality grades of polymers such as Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), Polyamide 6 and 66 (PA6, PA66), Polyphenylene sulphide (PPS) and chemically modified Polyethylene (PE). To reach good balance of mechanical, physical and chemical performances, combinations of different polymers within a single product has been adopted. This allowed to enhance determined characteristics to overcome specific issues, such extreme mechanical stresses and chemical attacks contemporaneously.

The braided sleeves are easily installed on components and can offer different expansion rates that allow fitting on bulky connectors. Depending on the level of required abrasion classes, sleeves with different surface coverage rate are offered. For standard application, a surface coverage of 75% is enough. However, we can offer expandable sleeves with superior coverage area up to 95%. The coverage area determines the density of monofilament during the braiding process. The higher the density, the better the abrasion resistance.

Spando-flex® can be sent in bulky form, in reels or cut in predefined lengths. In the latter case, to avoid fraying end issues, different solutions are also offered. Depending on the demand, ends can be cut with hot blades or treated with a special antifray coating. The sleeve can be put on curved parts like rubber hoses or fluid tubes with any bending radius and still maintaining a clear-cut end.

Special attentions have been put in the orange version of Spando-flex®. Indeed, to differentiate high voltage from low voltage cables, orange RAL 2003 has been specifically used. Additionally, the orange color shall not discolor throughout the entire lifetime of the vehicle.

Beside the traditional round braided sleeve, within Spando-flex® range there are multiple self-closing solutions. It allows an easy installation process, without the need of dismounting the connectors or the entire cable bundle.
