Why are cable management sleeves so effective?

May 05 , 2022

Braided cable sleeves are made of an open-weave construction. Because it’s open-weave and not solid, you can easily examine the wires underneath, or even remove individual wires. It’s also as flexible as you need it to be, conforming to the shape you need and allowing the encased wires to bend with ease.

This cable management sleeve is designed to resist damage, protecting wires from sharp or rough edges. Braided cable sleeving cushions wires from high impacts and vibrations. Heat dissipates, moisture drains and the sleeving withstands most fluid environments.

Braided sleeveing come in a variety of materials, Nylon, PET, polyester, PPS, or Nomex. Here are offered some ideas that you should consider:


The wide expandability of braided monofilament sleeving, such as what nylon 6/6 offers, makes it ideal for managing large bundles of wires. Nylon gives you superior abrasion resistance, which makes it a great choice when cables and hoses are exposed to excessive wear and tear, such as in cable assemblies and automotive applications.

Automotive manufacturers often opt for braided monofilament sleeving such as nylon to handle wire harnesses. This is due to the material’s flexibility, lightweight, and ease of installation. Nylon also offers outstanding fluid resistance, making it ideal in wet applications.

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET)

When environmental factors expose wires to the petrol, engine chemicals – automotive fluids in general – and cleaning solvents, PET is a smart choice for your cable sleeves. PET is also ideal for protecting wires from heat. It can stand up to extreme temperatures. Keep in mind, however, that there are variations of PET sleeves, so if it’s heat protection you want, check the specific product’s specifications.

PET also offers excellent abrasion resistance and a high expansion ratio, usually up to three times its resting diameter. If your bundle is large, PET is a good choice. It’s also UV resistant, which is another reason it suits outdoor applications.


Another highly flexible, sturdy material that expands to three times its nominal diameter. It’s easy to apply over irregular shapes and offers good insulation and abrasion resistance. It’s also resistant to corrosion and high temperatures, which is why polyester is often used for electrical appliances, electronics, and some automotive applications.

Polyphenylene Sulfide Monofilament (PPS)

You’ll find PPS in high-temperature, flame-resistant wire harnesses and cable assemblies. It’s incredibly lightweight and stands up to solvents. Engineers love PPS for its resistance to chemicals, low moisture absorption, high-temperature stability, outstanding dimensional stability, and extremely low wear. It’s inert to steam, strong bases, fuels, and acids. For all of these reasons, the aerospace and telecom industries embrace PPS.


This highly expandable material is lightweight with exceptional thermal stability. It stands up to chemicals, solvents, and abrasions. It’s ideal in high temperatures, the same as nylon’s melting point. It also performs in the presence of beta, gamma, and X-ray radiation and when exposed to high humidity or moisture. It withstands most acids, though some strength is compromised after exposure to hydrochloric, nitric, and sulphuric acids.
