Brady introduces new Flame Retardant Wire Wraps for aerospace and defense industries

Brady has introduced a new line of Flame Retardant Wire Wraps for identifying wires and cables in the aerospace and defense industries. This new material, which is made from polyimide, is self-extinguishing and can prevent flames from propagating.

"After extensive development and testing, we are excited to offer a reliable, high performance wire identification solution for our aerospace and defense customers," said Dana Ray, product manager for Brady materials. "Brady's Flame Retardant Wire Wraps meet, and even exceed, the industry's standards and specifications, and are available in stable supply for all of our customer segments."

Brady's Flame Retardant Wire Wraps are tested for the following industry specifications and standards:

• Federal Aviation Regulations: FAR 25.853 and FAR 25.855 (Fire protection)

• ASTM D1000 (Pressure-sensitive adhesive-coated tapes for electrical and electronic applications)

• Federal Motor Vehicle: FMV 302 (Flammability of interior materials)

• ASTM E162 (Smoke and flame)

• ASTM E662 (Surface flammability of materials)

- SAE-AS-81531 (Marking of electrical insulating materials)

- MIL-STD-202G, Method 215K (Resistance to solvents)

In addition to meeting industry specifications, the wire wraps also offer a number of other benefits for wire identification. The flexible material features a permanent adhesive and high opacity topcoat that can cover up existing messaging or lettering that may be present on a wire. Its film can withstand attacks from chemical reagents such as solvents, oils, detergents and lubricating fuels. The material also features a matte topcoat for thermal transfer and dot matrix printing with Brady's portable and industrial label printers.

Available in white or yellow in a variety of different stock sizes, Brady's Flame Retardant Wire Wraps are an ideal solution for wire and cable marking. They are also available in label format for component identification.
