ABS Expandable Sleeving

ABS is an expandable braided sleeve designed to have particular acoustic dampening properties. It is made by incorporating bulked PA monofilaments in a standard PET construction to reduce unwanted noise. It is available in internal diameter sizes from 4mm to 20mm

In addition to the protective and strengthening properties of standard PET monofilament braid, this braided hybrid jacket substantially reduces unwanted noise by lessening background noise and vibration interference thus allowing for purer sound reproduction. Excellent for those looking for braiding on their home made cables. A big step up from the standard expandable sleeving without a huge increase in price. 4mm, 6mm, 9mm, 12mm, 15mm, and 20mm available. For a cable of 9mm diameter go for the 9mm ABS sleeving.
