Neoprene is a versatile option designed to withstand the elements. It is aviation fuel, solvent, water and hydraulic fluid resistant, making aerospace cables a common application. Cable harness applications are also common as a result of its low temperature flexibility. Because it is flame retardant, thermally stable and self-extinguishing within 15 seconds, it can be used safely in high-temperature applications. This material is abrasion resistant.
This is an inexpensive heat shrink tubing option. It has a low shrink temperature which allows it to quickly shrink to half its size, forming a tight electrical insulation barrier in situations with fast recovery time requirements. It is commonly used in battery and capacitor insulation, as well as in the production of industrial equipment, electronics, medical and consumer products. It can also be used in wire harnesses and cable assemblies. It is 30% stronger than the standard Polyolefin. A semi-gloss finish makes this an aesthetically pleasing option.
Adhesive-Lined Polyolefin M23053/4
This is semi-rigid, flame retardant Polyolefin. The thermoplastic adhesive lining in this product provides a flexible, moisture resistant barrier. It cuts easily. It is ideal for strain relief, sealing, encapsulating and protection from moisture and erosion, especially in field installations.
This is irradiated Polyolefin. It is available in a wide variety of sizes, lengths and wall thicknesses and can be used for a range of applications, from general purpose to industrial. All are strong, highly flame retardant and have low shrink temperatures. It is also exceptionally resistant to water, fungus and UV light. This is the most flexible form of heat shrink tubing.
This is irradiated semi-rigid Polyolefin. It is thermally stable and provides maximum mechanical strength and component strain relief. It is also abrasion and cut-through resistant.
This is semi-rigid, thin wall, irradiated Polyvinylidene Flouride. It is flame retadant, cut-though, abrasion and heat resistant. Another benefit of this product is that it can be flexed, bent and twisted without losing mechanical or electrical strength. It can be used as a jacket for components and fuse covering or in strain relief
Non-stick FEP heat shrink tubing is designed to protect components subject to intense heat and extreme environments. It is highly heat, chemical, solvent and cut-through resistant. FEP also possess excellent physical and electrical qualities and is chemically inert. This product is supplied in four foot lengths and has see-through characteristics, making it convenient and easy to use. Common application include covering pressure and temperature probes.
This works well in tough environmental conditions, including high temperatures. It is ideal for chemical, medical, nuclear and automotive uses, as well as in aerospace and electrical applications. More benefits of this product include chemical, solvent, shock, abrasion and cut-through resistance.
This is flexible at low and high temperatures. It is extremely cut-through and abrasion resistant. Another advantage of using this product is that it can withstand fuels, lubricants and hydraulic fluids up to 200°C. Common applications include protection from rodents in oil wells, protection of aircraft, aerospace and industrial wire and wire bundles.
Adhesive-Lined Polyolefin M23053/15
This installs in minutes in both underground and overhead applications. It may be used with copper or aluminum cable splices and does not require any grease or sealants. It is commonly used for semi-rigid and flexible drop trunks.
Clear PVDF M23053/18
This is chemical resistant, non-corrosive and self-extinguising. It is also clear, allowing for easy visual inspection. Common applications include automotive wiring, jacketing for resistors, capacitors, and other components and replacement of non-flame retarded clear sleeving. It is effective in high temperatures, caustic and chemical environments.
This product is ideal for insulating splices, connections and terminations. It is also used for insulation and protection in tolls, wire bundles and cable harnesses, outdoor equipment and power cables. Benefits include superior abrasion resistance and chemical resistance, thermal stability and excellent ozone weathering.
This is any easy to use product that does not require expensive shrinking equipment. It provides electrical insulation and protection, and can replace electrical tape. It is suitable for both hand and machine applications.
Wire markers and cable markers are used to label wires and cables. Wire marking can be done before or after termination. There is a large variety of markers available, including an array of sizes, colors, and lengths. When selecting individual products, specifications to consider include materials of construction and certifications or approvals.
