Custom Overbraiding & Harness Overbraiding

Mettex offers a comprehensive overbraiding service to cover customers free issue material.

We braid directly onto cable harnesses, flexible conduit, hose or cable to provide an outer sheath for screening or mechanical protection.

The degree of screening coverage will relate to a given application but 95% optical coverage or better is typical.
