IFE-RSF

Woven Heat Shrinkable Sleeves

IFE-RSF is a flexible, braided cloth fiber designed to protect rubber hoses, plastic pipes, harness wiring bundles, and other diverse components. It offers many benefits:

  • Resists mechanical abrasion
  • Suppresses noise and rattles
  • Heat shrinkable, so it conforms to diverse components
  • Soft and flexible, yet very rugged
  • Easy to handle and apply
  • Effective in temperatures from -40°C to 125°C (no cracking or deterioration in abrasion resistance)
  • Seamless construction won’t snag or fray
  • I.D.s from 12mm to 70mm (shrinks to half that)
  • Can be cut to desired length
