Ben-Har™ 1151-FRB Grade A is a rugged, flame-retardant, silicone rubber coated sleeving that provides excellent cut-through and abrasion protection for wiring systems in applications with temperatures ranging from -70ºC to +200ºC.
If your required size is not in stock the standard lead time is 7-9 weeks. Once your pre-order is complete you will receive a confirmation with the expected ship date.
Ben-Har™ 1151-FRB Grade A is a rugged, flame-retardant, silicone rubber coated sleeving that provides excellent cut-through and abrasion protection for wiring systems in applications with temperatures ranging from -70ºC to +200ºC. Because the specially formulated silicone rubber is extrusion coated over the non-combustible fiberglass braid, it results in a reinforced sleeving that is superior to ordinary dip-coated sleeving and unreinforced rubber or plastic tubing.
The improved flame-retardant characteristics mean that 1151-FRB Grade A is difficult to ignite, has a very slow rate of burn travel and self-extinguishes promptly - even after bottom ignition of a vertical specimen. 1151-FRB Grade A is used to separate/isolate/insulate critical circuits and conductors, as a thermal barrier for limited periods, as identification marking, or as a wire bundling mechanism. It is ideal for protecting wiring systems in modern jet aircraft against abrasion, impact, harmful drip, splash or spray. Qualified by major U.S. airframe manufacturers, 1151-FRB Grade A meets all of the performance requirements of MIL-I-3190/6.
Ben-Har 1151-FRB Grade A is resistant to hydraulic fluids (including Skydrol LD), jet fuels, inorganic acids, and alkalis. Some swelling occurs in aromatic hydrocarbons and chlorinated solvents.
