Find our braid product types and specification information – including sizing, width, and thickness information – and in the documents below:

  • Flat – A flat braid has a specific current carrying capacity. High currents are easily carried at low voltages. Typically used as a ground strap when flexibility, strange configurations and solder-ability are of prime importance. Braid provides a low resistance ground path.
  • Rope – Manufactured with fine strand wire to achieve the ultimate in flexibility and where extended flex-life is a primary consideration. Excellent for shunts, grounds, leads, and flexible jumpers.
  • Tubular – Tubular braid has a specific current carrying capacity. High currents are easily carried at low voltages. Typically used as a ground strap or to add Shielding to a wire or cable. Shielding is achieved by insertion of the wire or cable into the braid or inserting a shielded cable to maximize braid coverage. Braid provides a low resistance path to ground.

Silver Plated
Minimum of 40 micro-inches of silver. For use where the wires are subjected to temperatures exceeding 200°C or if special corrosion resistance is required.

Nickel Plated
Minimum of 50 micro-inches of nickel. For use where the wires are subjected to temperatures up to 450°C or if special corrosion resistance is required.

Stainless Steel
Wires conform to MIL-W-423, composition 304. For use where wires are subjected to temperatures up to 650°C or where mechanical strength and protection are important considerations.

Aluminum
Alclad 5056 aluminum alloy. Higher resistance to corrosion.
