Various types of insulating sleeves are available to protect electrical wires, and their applications are extensive. This article will focus on insulating sleeves used in home appliances, and share a successful case study featuring the renowned home appliance manufacturer Electrolux, which uses high-quality Good Gi insulating sleeves.
Electrolux is a Swedish home appliance manufacturer with a rich history spanning over a century. It is a global leader in the home appliance industry and owns several well-known brands, including Electrolux, AEG, and Frigidaire. They sell more than 60 million household and professional appliances worldwide each year. As of 2023, the company's market value exceeds 4 billion New Taiwan Dollars.

In-home appliances, the application of insulating sleeves is highly diverse. We will introduce various tubing materials and their uses one by one.
PVC tubes offer a highly cost-effective advantage, making them the most widely used insulating and protective tubing material in household appliances. PVC tubes can withstand high temperatures up to 105°C for extended periods and endure extremely low temperatures as low as -40°C. Additionally, they boast excellent insulation properties, with an insulation strength of 15KV per millimeter, effectively shielding internal cables from external environmental interference. Moreover, PVC tubes come with a UL VW-1 flame retardant rating, ensuring effective fire prevention in emergencies.
In summary, PVC tubes offer an economical and practical solution, providing excellent resistance to high temperatures, adaptability to low temperatures, superior insulation, and flame-retardant properties. These qualities make PVC tubes ideal for protecting large home appliances such as refrigerators, air conditioners, and washing machines.
Fiberglass sleeves are mainly used in high-temperature equipment and for connecting wires to heaters. They provide insulation, heat resistance, and flame-retardant protection. They are commonly used in ovens, microwaves, rice cookers, and electric pots, among others. Good Gi produces fiberglass sleeves using locally sourced fiberglass and coating them with high-temperature-resistant silicone from Shin-Etsu, a Japanese company. This ensures a solution to issues such as uneven gluing, air bubbles, or easily breakable sleeves found in some products on the market.
There are various types and materials of heat shrink sleeves available. For instance, if you have highly high-temperature requirements, around 200°C, we recommend choosing from the Teflon series of heat shrink sleeves, which includes PVDF heat shrink sleeves, FEP heat shrink sleeves, PTFE heat shrink sleeves, and PFA heat shrink sleeves. If you need both high-temperature resistance and flexibility, you can opt for silicone heat shrink sleeves or silicone tubing. In cramped spaces where applications involve hot water, such as coffee machines reaching temperatures up to 200°C, you can choose a silicone hose that remains non-toxic even under prolonged exposure to high temperatures. For damp environments where protection against moisture is essential, heat-shrink sleeves with adhesive properties can be selected to achieve a better sealing
Insulating sleeves play a crucial role in household appliances, offering diverse protection options to ensure the safe operation of wires and components in various environments. Different types and materials of insulating sleeves meet specific requirements of household appliances, such as high-temperature resistance, flame retardance, and waterproofing. As a manufacturer of insulating sleeves, Good Gi is committed to providing high-quality and versatile products, becoming the most reliable partner for our customers. Our products are widely used in household appliances like refrigerators, air conditioners, washing machines, ovens, and microwaves, ensuring their performance and durability receive optimal protection. In the future, we will continue to strive for excellence, innovate continuously, and provide customers with more advanced and reliable insulating sleeve solutions, together embracing the challenges and opportunities in the household appliance industry.
