Drawn fiber

  • 20-Jan-2009 03:03 EST

­­Zeus PEEK drawn fiber is used to create a braided sleeve or over-braid that is both expandable and flexible. Available in extruding strands in sizes ranging from 0.003 to 0.040 in (0.076 to 1.02 mm), the woven braiding can be placed over existing wire assemblies to guard against chaffing. The fiber, which is­ suitable for automotive and aerospace appl­ications, offers abrasion and corrosion resistance, tensile strength, and tenacity. The fiber performs in extreme temperatures up to 480°F (248°C), produces low smoke and gas emissions, and has high elongation properties, resulting in great impact recovery. To meet the specific industry requirements for braiding identification, Zeus offers the product in natural, black, red, green, yellow, blue, orange, and violet.
