Fiberglass Sleeve

Braided sleeve will conform to the shape of products with changing geometries like prosthetics and hockey sticks, improving overall performance, minimizing weight, and maximizing strength. It can be slid over a prepared mandrel or cylinder to create straight or tapered tubing.

The sleeve can be increased from a base diameter up to 30% and decreased by 70%. This means that our 2-inch sleeve can be used in a single application ranging from 0.6″ to 2.6″ in diameter.

Braided sleeve is seamless, so it withstands internal pressure, distributes the load more evenly, and tolerates damage and fatigue. When the product is pressurized, it works much like a shark’s body, orienting to the direction of force. If a puncture in the finished product does occur, the sleeve provides a slow, controlled failure, rather than a more damaging and potentially dangerous rupture.

Laying up sleeve is predictable, repeatable, and suitable for precise manufacture of composite parts. It is extremely resistant to cracks between layers, reducing the possibility of delaminating and increasing the strength of the product.

Use with epoxy, polyester, or vinyl ester resin systems. Sleeve matches the 2×2 twill weave pattern of #1094 fabric.
