TY-RAP® polyethylene terephthalate braided expandable wire sleeve. Braided wire protection sleeving is used to bundle and protect wires and cables from abrasion and excessive wear. Its flexible, lightweight, open weave construction installs easily over a variety of bundle diameters and shapes. The sleeving is resistant to chemicals, fungus, fuels, UV sunlight and has an indefinite shelf life. It can be easily cut with a hot knife, which seals the end, preventing fraying. Ends can be secured using TY-RAP® cable ties.
