Alpha Wire 1-800-52 ALPHA Specifications subject to change. For complete specifications and availability, visit 488 Expandable Polyester Webbed Sleeving ZIP-GRP ZIP-GRP expandable webbing offers superb flexibility and high tensile strength while providing added protection against flame, chemicals, and abrasion. With its hook and loop fastening, wires, cable assemblies, and wire harnesses are always accessible and can be easily opened for any number of breakouts. To prevent fraying of ends, ZIP-GRP should be cut/sealed with a hot knife. Lacing Tape Alpha lacing tapes offer high tensile strength and knot retention. Designed to allow a wider contact area with the insulation so that it remains in place, lacing tape is flexible and easy on the assembler's hands. Once knotted, tape resists slipping and does not increase diameter of harness. Nylon has excellent tensile strength and resists acids, abrasion, flame, and fungus. Polyester has all the characteristics of nylon, but has better resistance to acids, and no appreciable discoloration. Tinned and Silver-Plated Copper Braid A tight weave of multistrand, soft drawn copper wire, either tinned or silver plated, copper braid is an ideal shielding material for short- run cables providing easy radial termination. In retrofit applications, provides additional shielding efficiency. Tinned copper flat braid, used as a ground strap, provides an excellent, low-resistance ground path.
