HKX is ideal for use where resistance to abrasion and cut-through is critical. Because it is extremely tough, it is excellent for strain relief applications. HKX can be flexed, twisted, and bent repeatedly without loss of mechanical or electrical strength.
HKX is translucent, making inspection and identification of covered objects easier. Longitudinal shrinkage is less than 5%. To keep objects being covered relatively cool, faster shrinkage at 250-350°C is suggested.
