tesa® Sleeve 68000 PV17

Aluminum laminated glass cloth Sleeve® for radiant heat reflection and enhanced flexibility in the automotive engine compartment

Product description

tesa® Sleeve 68000 PV17 is an aluminum laminated glass cloth with an acrylic adhesive and a thin PET fleece layer, designed for automotive engine compartments. Its acrylic adhesive is compatible with new halogen-free cable jacketing materials (PE/PP) and provides excellent radiant heat shielding as well as enhanced durability at high temperature.

The tesa® Sleeve product construction ensures minimum adhesive contact with the wires to provide maximum harness flexibility. Customized length-specific kiss cutting is available on request. tesa® Sleeve 68000 PV17 is specifically designed for efficient lengthwise manual application.
