TechFlex has been a family owned business for more than 50 years. As a family owned business, they bring an extra level of experience, expertise and commitment. TechFlex has consistently been at the forefront of their unique industry.

TechFlex got its start in an unused garage with only a handful of ideas and products. They have now grown and evolved into a reliable and trusted global resource with the most complete and comprehensive sleeving and related product lines available. Their worldwide reputation for innovation, product excellence and outstanding customer service has propelled them to market leadership status.

William E. Dermody Jr. (1917-2004), the founder of Techflex, walked on many continents as a field service engineer for Curtiss Wright Aircraft Company. He saw men land on the moon and was inspired to create many products that TechFlex still produce today. His principals are alive today in their company and they are thankful to him for setting the path to product innovation, customer friendships, and cautious and sustainable growth.

Under the guidance of his son, William Dermody, III, now President of Techflex, they have become stronger and larger while avoiding the unsound strategies that are plaguing so many companies today.

While traditional in structure, Techflex is proud to be the most technologically advanced in their industry. TechFlex’s investments in technology keep their costs low for the benefit of their customers. Their expertise spans from state-of-the-art inventory tracing systems to their product testing and information processes. Techflex puts it all at your fingertips. This increased efficiency helps their customers by reducing lead times, reduced inventory levels, and a greater ability, when necessary, to customize the handling of materials.

Quick & Easy Substitute for Expensive Over-braiding

It is not commonly known—but the fact is, over-braiding is better at protecting wire harnesses than any other protective technology. Over-braiding beautifully combines the features of flexibility, ruggedness, breathability and coverage.

What is not considered a feature of over-braiding is the 2000-pound braiding machine required to create many of today’s “over braided” heavy equipment harnesses. That’s why Techflex created OVR Braid. Made from the exact OEM yarns used and approved by the top construction equipment manufacturers. OVR Braid is designed to install from a roll quickly and efficiently. This is perfect whether building an assembly from scratch or repairing an existing wire loom. OVR can be installed in a similar way to their well known Flexo style sleeves, by expanding and sliding it. This allows OVR to snake itself down nearly any harness without tools or machines. Once installed even a highly experienced harness aficionado would be hard pressed to tell which harness was “over braided” and which harness was “Techflex OVR Braid”.

TechFlex offer over-braid solutions for numerous applications:

  • High Performance Sleeving that Provides EMI Shielding
  • Conductive Carbon Infused Nylon Expandable Braided Sleeving
  • Abrasion Protection That Cuts Easily With Scissors

  • Heavy Duty 80 Mil Thick Tubular Tightly Woven Nylon Design
  • Tightly Woven Nylon for Heavy Duty Hose Protection
  • Flexible & Seamless Abrasion Resistant Braided Sleeving
  • Flat Filament Expandable Braided Sleeving

These are just a sampling of the types of over-braiding solutions available from TechFlex.  Contact your Shattuc sales representative or contact us online for more information on TechFlex products.
