Protect-Fast Advanced Braided Wraps & Sleeving provide enhanced wiring protection and containment for cable assemblies, hoses and wire harnesses in critical industries with challenging conditions like higher temperatures, chemical or flame exposure. They will keep data flowing and provide containment and identification for easier troubleshooting.

Key Benefits that apply to all products

  • For demanding conditions: high temperature, high vibration, chemical or fire exposure
  • Protection from abrasion and cutting.
  • Tough and lightweight for easy installation.
  • Containment for easy management/troubleshooting/retrofits
All Wraps offer 25% overlap

PFA-HLW Hook & Loop Wrap

  • Superior protection for constant/extreme use – an industrial strength hook and loop secures the cabling.
  • Flexible sleeve made from tightly woven high strength ballistic nylon
  • Greater abrasion resistance (8,500 cycles) and water repellency.
