Spiral Binding (left) / Braided Sleeving (right)
Here You can find several sorts of cable protection:
- braided sleeving
- spiral binding
- heat shrink tubing
This braided sleeving consists of a syntetic network. This sleeving expands the diameter when shortned in length and gets a smaller diameter when pulled to become lomger. This procedure is reversible. This means, when pushed over the cables of the wiring loom the sleeving will expand so it will fit over the cables and then when pulled off the wiring loom the sleeving will fit tight on the wires. The ends of the sleeving will then be fixed with a cable tie. To avoid disintegration of the sleeving during installation, the ends may be treated with heat.
The spiral binding basically consists of a wrapped syntethic band. This spiral bindig is wraped around the cables/wiring so the cables are protected against skimming. The advantage of spiral binding is, that it is possible to even protect branches of the wiring loom and the ends do not have to be secured seperately.
This heat shrink is a Polyolefin tubing, shrink ratio 2:1. Minimum shrink temperature 120°C. Operating temperature of -40°C to 135°C.
