Expando® PEEK (polyetheretherketone) is an expandable sleeve designed for mechanical protection in temperature extremes and hostile environmental conditions. Rated to 260ºC (500ºF), Expando® PEEK meets VW-1 flammability requirements.
The inherent properties of PEEK give Expando® PEEK low levels of flammability, toxicity, smoke generation, and hard vacuum off-gassing. Because of its high use temperature, Expando® PEEK resists damage from high-temperature air guns used with heat-shrinkable elements such as strain reliefs, terminations, and identification sleeves.
Expando® PEEK is used in the aerospace industry for its outstanding properties in extreme environments. This product should be considered for aircraft, space, military, marine, and hostile-environment applications.
Expando® products are tough, lightweight oversleeves used to protect cable assemblies, hoses and wire harnesses from chafing, cutting and abrading. The open-braid construction of Expando products enables each size to expand to fit several application shapes and diameters. This open-textile construction also makes them highly flexible and resistant to trapping water, heat and humidity.
