Silicone Electrical Sleeving

Produced in 60° Shore A hardness as standard, our silicone electrical sleeving is commonly used for electrical insulation Silex silicone sleevings have excellent insulating properties over a wide temperature range. 

Our sleeving is not just restricted to insulation applications. In fact, there are thousands of uses for this versatile material.

Float rubbers and lures, widely used in the fishing industry demonstrate the diversity to which Silex sleevings can be put to good use.

Silex coloured silicone sleeving is compliant to FDA, Bfr, WRAS and KTW standards. Standard colours are red, orange, blue, yellow, green, brown, translucent, black and white. These tubes are available in inside diameters from 0.5mm to 5mm with walls from 0.5mm to 1.5mm.
