Lacing Tapes are flat or round braided tapes and twisted cords ideal for military and aerospace applications. Mil-spec lacing tapes are used to tie and bundle wires and cables in the aerospace, aviation, and wire harness industries. Unlike cable ties, the insulation on wires bundled with lacing tape has less chance of cold flowing and shorting. Lacing tapes also have no sharp edges that could cut the installer’s hands when reaching into a tightly packed wiring cavity.

Expandable Sleeving is a lightweight, self-fitting sleeving designed to protect and restrain wires, wire bundles, cables, hoses, and flat or ribbon cable assemblies. It is flexible and self-fitting and adjusts to irregular surfaces and contours. With uses in the electronic, electrical, automotive, aviation, aerospace, industrial, telecommunication, and motor industries, Western Filament’s expandable sleeving is the perfect product to increase abrasion-resistance and protect against cuts, impacts, and snagging.

Nomex Sleeving is a high-temperature-resistant insulating material that is used in a variety of applications, including motors, generators, transformers, and other electrical equipment.
