Varglas A397 and 343 Acrylic Sleeving

Varglas A397 and 343 Acrylic sleevings are produced by curing a modified acrylic resin on a continuous fiberglass braid, with A397 Acrylic best characterized by its flexibility. Both are resistant to most acids, organic solvents, oils, water and exhibit fair resistance to alkalies. They are compatible with modified polyester, acrylic, epoxy, phenolic and formvar wire enamels. Varglas A397 and 343 Acrylic sleevings are designed to perform for long periods in a 155°C range without loss of any electrical or physical properties.
