Overview

Zip-Shield® (PTG) Cable Bundling with EMI Shielding
  • High-performance, PTFE-coated fiberglass jacket
  • Chemical resistant and offers military-grade protection
  • Handles high and low temperatures
  • Equipped with EMI shielding foil and pressure track closure

Zip-Shield® (PTG) pairs a sewn-in EMI-shielded cloth, mesh or SH1 foil shielding, for EMI protection, with a lightweight, PTG-5 jacket made from PTFE-coated fiberglass fabric that is both military grade and highly chemical resistant. Zip-Shield® (PTG) provides durable protection in low – to high-temperature environments and has a pressure track closure. Optional sewn-in 15 AWG drain strap can be used for grounded applications.

Zip-Shield® (PTG) is equipped with Zippertubing’s FEP Z-Track closure. This medium-duty pressure track closure is highly versatile and has an arrowhead-and-channel interlock system. Z-Track can be sealed with our ZTZ-SP plier tool.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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.
