Tubular sheath of braided wires made to fit snugly over the hose and welded at the ends of the assembly. Braid is the pressure member of the assembly and prevents elongation of the corrugations under pressure.
A planar flat or tubular fabric structure made by interlacing several yarns in such a manner that all yarns lie at an angle other than 0° or 90° to the length direction of the structure (according to ISO/DIS 13922).
1) The process of taking at least three strands of hair and plaiting them together to create one strand. There are many different fashion effects which can be achieved with this process. A tiny braid may also be used to create a secure anchor against the head for attaching wefted hair extensions using a needle and thread to sew the extension to the braid. 2) A hairpiece with a longer length of hair which may be purchased with the braid already in it. Braids come in many different lengths and thicknesses.
The simplest form of fabric which is woven or plaited flat, in the round or as a tubular narrow fabric. Braiding or plaiting yarn, narrow strips of fabric, flexible wire or metallic threads, to make shoe laces, candle wicks, ropes and cord.
The covering formed from textile yarn. Braids provide mechanical and thermal protection to plastic insulation, separate cable segments in multi-conductor cables and act as components in flame retardant cables. See also Shield.
An essential part of many fiber-optic cable designs, consisting of a layer of woven yarn. Note: In the case of single-fiber loose-buffered or two-fiber "zip-cord" loose-buffered fiber-optic cables, the braid is situated between the buffer tube and jacket. In the case of cables having multiple buffer tubes, the braid is usually situated between the inner jacket and outer jacket. Learn more about Braid...
The interwoven outer conductive layer of coaxial cable made up of several bare conductors coming together to form a solid or nearly solid layer or shield. Braid is rated by percentage of coverage and by pixels per inch. Pixels per inch indicate the number of crossings of the braid in one inch of cable.
A form of a weave that includes three strands of something folded over one another to make a interesting look. Braids are commonly done on hair, but wire, cord, or leather can be braided as well to make jewelry.
A fibrous or metallic interwoven cylinder covering a conductor or cable providing some mechanical strength and serving as a means of polarity identification. A braid may be composed of any filamentary material as cotton, glass, nylon, tinned copper, silver or asbestos. Woven bare metallic or tinned copper wire is used as shielding for wires and cables and as ground wires for batteries of heavy industrial equipment.
To weave strands of hair together. On the scalp braiding is used to form a base or track to sew on a commercial weft. This is the cornrow technique. Off the scalp braiding is used for traditional braiding styles and various methods adding extensions such as Warlocks.
