BLACK EXPANDO # XPF-1/4
Really like this product. I bought it for wire bundles but also used it to cover some exposed tubing. Terminate it with a piece of shrink tube. Works and looks great. I just ordered another 40’
Good Stuff...I used the 1/8 to protect the 5 conductor 24 ga trim wire routed from panel to wingtip and into Aileron. It took a few minutes to slide it through as the stuff acts like chinese finger cuffs.
This sleeve acts as an excellent protective sleeve on wire bundles. I use it anywhere wires pass thru the firewall and on all critical wires. I would recommend cutting it with a hot knife blade so you actually melt thru it. If you cut it without the ends melting it will unravel pretty quickly. After installing it, I always encapsulate each end with heat shrink tubing.
So suggest you order a few feet of the stuff before ordering qty.. I found this wire sleeve unravels much to easily at the cut ends... Yes could safety wire the end ..or wrap in electrical tape to stop the fraying... Melt end via Flame??.. (Ouch) But... I thought the wire sleeve was the same as the wire sleeve found on Alcor CHT/EGT probes.. Which is really nice .. Have a call into Alcor to find what wire sleeve they use... Love Aircraft Spruce !!
