High-Performance Braided Shielding and Sleeving for EMI/RFI Screening and Mechanical Protection in Cable Assemblies

High-Performance Braided Shielding and Sleeving for EMI/RFI Screening and Mechanical Protection in Cable Assemblies

The World's Most Innovative Line of Metal, Composite, Fabric and Microfilament Tubular Braiding Solutions for Electromagnetic Interference Shielding in Interconnect Cable Assemblies

Glenair's in-house braiding production capacity is truly impressive. More than 50 braiders, ranging from 16 to 96 carriers, provide the capability to produce large quantities of precise metal and non-metallic braid and expandable sleeving in tubular, tapered, and flat configurations in virtually any material and length to suit customer requirements. We are also able to supply direct over-braiding services for complex, multi-branch cable assemblies and harnesses.

Braiding materials used at Glenair include bare copper, tin-plated copper-covered steel, copper plated with tin, nickel or silver; bronze, stainless steel, copper-covered steel, aluminum, nylon, Dacron®, Nomex®, Kevlar® and monofilament Peek, Teflon®, Ryton®, Halar®, and polyester. Glenair's newest addition to our braid products is the extremely lightweight AmberStrand® composite thermoplastic EMI/RFI braiding shielding. Plus, we now offer an additional microfilament braiding solution made of stainless steel, called ArmorLite™ that is both extremely lightweight and high-temperature resistant.
