Zip-On (PVL) Infographic
  • Abrasion-resistant, fire-retardant, PVC-coated polyester fabric jacketing
  • Z-Track closure system that provides a secure seal around components
  • Military-grade and RoHS compliant

Zip-On® (PVL) is a wrap-around cable management and protection solution that features a heat-sealed, fire-retardant jacket and Z-Track pressure closure. The PVL jacketing is made of a polyester fabric that is coated with PVC on both sides. At only 0.010” thick, the PVL jacketing is lightweight. Additionally, the jacketing offers good durability, abrasion resistance, and fire retardancy. The protection sleeve can be used in rugged environments or conditions and will last to provide protection of the components inside. The jacketing is also military grade and RoHS compliant.

The Z-Track closure provides a secure seal that you can be confident will stay fastened. The Z-Track pressure track can be installed with the use of one of our plier or slider tools. The plier tool is great for long cable runs, while the slider tool is better for those shorter cable runs.

Zip-On® (PVL) is offered for diameters ranging from 0.375” to 8.25” with custom sizes available, as well as a variety of color options upon request.

Q:  What is the difference between the track closure styles?

A:  Each interlocking track profile has unique benefits and trade-offs.  To learn about them you can review our Track Comparison.

Q:  How do I close the jacketing?

A:  Some tracks can be closed by hand, but we also offer closure tools to assist with installation.  For more information on closing the specific tracks you can view our helpful videos or installation guides:

Q:  Can I cut the tubing?

A:  Yes.  Standard scissors are suitable for cutting through most Zip-On jackets and tracks.

Q:  What lengths of material are available?

A:  Typical spool lengths for most sizes are 100 feet, but will depend on total order footage.  Custom lengths can be provided, just make sure to ask when ordering or include details on the PO for the lengths required.

Q:  Will the track keep out water and is it water-tight?

A:  Our different track closures are rated between IP54 and IP55. This means they are not water tight but will provide significant protection against moisture and fluid ingress. 
Some users will apply tape or a sealant to the track, after closing, to provide additional protection. 

Q:  What diameter of jacketing do I need?  Is it recommended to oversize?

A:  We will often suggest oversizing the sleeve diameter by 1/8” to allow for ease of install
when using a closure tool.  If the application requires significant bending or flexing we will suggest even more extra room.  For assistance with sizing you can also contact one of our design engineers.

Q:  What is the minimum bend radius of the tubing?

A:  There is no minimum bend radius for our Zip-On products. The flexible jacketing material allows for extreme amounts of bending and flexing.  The bend radius of the installed tubing is typically dictated by the harness it is covering.
