A braided sleeve, also known as a cable sleeve or wire sleeve, is a flexible protective covering that is used to enclose and protect wires, cables, hoses, and other similar items. It is typically made of braided materials, such as nylon, polyester, fiberglass, or Kevlar.
The braided construction of the sleeve allows it to expand and contract, making it useful for accommodating cables of different sizes and shapes. It also provides excellent abrasion resistance and can help to prevent damage to cables from wear and tear, as well as exposure to heat, moisture, chemicals, and other hazards.
Braided sleeves come in a variety of sizes and colors, and are often used in electronic and automotive applications, as well as in industrial settings. They can also be used to organize and manage cables and wires, reducing clutter and improving safety. Additionally, some braided sleeves are designed to offer electromagnetic shielding, protecting sensitive electronic components from interference.
