Nomex® aramid braided tubing
Nomex® aramid braided tubing is an excellent solution for protecting cables and wires from abrasion, cuts and environmental influences. Made from high quality aramid fibers, Nomex® fabric hoses offer outstanding mechanical and thermal properties. Consequently, the sleeves are widely used in diverse industries such as aerospace, automotive, electrical and military.
A general distinction is made between two types of aramid fibers: para-aramid and meta-aramid. Both fibers are made of polyamide polymers, but differ in their chemical structure. Para-aramid fibers such as Kevlar® are stiffer and have a higher tensile strength than meta-aramid fibers. On the other hand, meta-aramid fibers such as Nomex® have better thermal stability and flame resistance than para-aramid fibers. Our product portfolio includes both variants.
