Hilec 710C is comprised of a tightly woven, highly flexible, continuous filament E glass braid which has been heat treated to remove starches and oils, and subsequently saturated with acrylic resin formulated to provide excellent fray and splay resistance when cut. The resin also stabilizes the fibers, which reduces operator skin irritation. Although the acrylic resin degrades at operating temperatures above 200 Deg C, 710C continues to provide thermal and space factor insulations high as 650 Deg C with continuous operation at 450 Deg C. 710C expands readily to slip over connections or terminals. 710C is used in high temperature, low voltage applications such as shunts in carbon brushes, toasters, coffeemakers and other small heating appliances. Its flexibility and expandability makes 710C highly useful over irregular shapes such as coil insulation on rotating equipment. 710c is also used for thermal and cut-through protection in automotive wire harness assemblies as well as track, stage and other types of lighting devices.
