AGS is a halogen-free acrylic impregnated heat treated glass braided sleeve with a continuous operating temperature up to +155°C. It has a thermal classification of Class F and is available in several voltage grades, in many colours, and in sizes up to 25mm as standard.

This long established industry standard for Class F insulation is valued for its abrasion resistance and flexibility whereby the sleeve maintains electrical properties even after flexing. As it retains major properties up to 450°C (with progressive degradation of resin and changes in colour after 190°C) it can also operate above its thermal classification in the short-term. It has excellent resistance to oils, fluids and chemicals and is compatible with most insulating varnishes. Acrylic coated glass braid is often used in applications such as relays, radio circuits, transformers, domestic appliances and lead/crossover protection on motors. It will withstand tough assembly handling.
