Dressup your wires, cables and hoses with the custom look of polished braided steel, and protect them from heat, UV rays, abrasion and wear.
The metalized heavy duty mylar sleeving is an economical alternative to braided steel. It cuts easily to any length with a hot knife and expands to fit over wire or hoses up to 3" in diameter. It resists cuts, nicks, abrasions and provides for a custom look on any application. It is ideal for use in exposed applications such as customizing motorcycle hoses and exposed wiring.
The standard Chrome sleeving has a more open look, with transparent PET braided together with the metallic strands to create a slight glimmer when light strikes it and to allow the color of the application to come through for a special effect.
The new X-tra coverage product, Chrome XC, provides fuller coverage with no transparent elements in the braided construction and results in a smooth, continuous metallic shine on any application.
