Insulating Sleeving
Solutions

 

Add high-temperature performance, Dielectric strength,
Flame retardant properties.

Fabricate insulating sleeving with proven XIAMETER® silicone elastomers for insulating sleeving that lasts longer, performs better in demanding applications. Add high-temperature performance, dielectric strength, and flame retardancy.

 

Fabricate electrical insulating sleeving that lasts longer, performs better

Coat your textile- or fiber-glass-reinforced insulating sleeving and high-temperature sleeving with proven XIAMETER® brand silicone elastomers from Dow Corning.

XIAMETER silicone elastomers bond well to your braid and offer a unique combination of benefits organic elastomers cannot match, including:

  • Dielectric strength above 20 kV/mm
  • Resistance to high temperatures, moisture, and chemicals
  • All-temperature flexibility coupled with good resilience
  • The ability to be tailored to your flammability rating requirements

Consequently, electrical insulating sleeving or high-temperature sleeving fabricated with XIAMETER silicone elastomers lasts longer and performs better in demanding applications and challenging operating environments:

  • Automotive safety and electrical systems
  • Industrial equipment and fabricating machinery
  • Heat-generating appliances
  • High-voltage transformers


Increase the value of your insulating sleeving and high-temperature sleeving

 
  • Improve flame retardancy.
  • Protect wiring from heat, moisture and corrosion.
 


 
  • Resist cracking in the cold and degradation at high temperatures (common problems with organic rubber sleeving).
  • Stand up to extreme temperature shifts [from -100 to 400ºC (-148 to 750ºF)] in emergency situations.
 


 
  • Improve manufacturing efficiency.
  • Increase your sleeving's ability to bend, expand, conform, and fit.
  • Give it the flexibility to wind more easily onto and off the reel.
 

Meet a wide range of global industry specifications and performance tests

  • High-temperature resistance
  • Flammability rating
  • Flame retardancy
  • Low smoke, low toxicity
  • Low-temperature flexibility
  • Chemical and corrosion resistance
  • Moisture resistance
  • Mechanical properties
