Screening Braid

Braids for the electrical screening of wires. This braid is made up of nickel-plated braid, fitted on a plastic tube that your wire/wires can be threaded through. 

Superb, for homemade interconnect cables, simply insert your signal and return wire into the former tube and wire up to the RCA plugs. BTUBE1.2 is excellent for the internal wiring of pre-amps to reduce cross-talk. You should insulate the exposed screening braid with heat shrink, expandable sleeving, or some form of covering. Various sizes are available. 

For the assist wire insertion, lie the screen braid flat, and the inserted wire should be laid flat, too. You can use talcum powder to assist.
