Description

If you are looking at a classic heat shrink tube such as can be found more or less everywhere you will without doubt be in for a surprise as the model chosen by DX Avenue has nothing in common, other than it is heat shrink.


Thick heat shrink sleeve containing a completely thermoplastic covered interior surface.


On heating, the diameter of the sleeve reduces by 4:1, and the interior resin melts. On cooling, the sleeve and the resin harden. This combination guarantees resistance to pullout and a perfect waterproofing for your connections, the whole preventing a sleeve from slipping. In the case of a connector mounted on a cable (coaxial for example), this sleeving ensures a reinforcement at the place where the cable is generally subject to stress when the radius of the curve is low (see photo above) or the cable is suspended.

Characteristics

• Length: 10 cm

• Actual internal diameter: 13 mm

• Shrink diameter : 12 to 3 mm

• Shrink ratio: 4:1 (max)

• Wall thickness: from 1 to 2 mm (depending on shrinkage level)

• Temperature range: -40°C to + 120°C

• Resistant to UV and corrosion: Yes

• Adhesive thermoplastic covering: Yes (over the whole interior surface)

• Dielectric resistance IEC 243: >20KV/mm

• Packaging: 2 sleeves in a sealed packet

Notes and Suggestions from DX AVENUE

• To shrink this sleeve, use a classic hot air gun (heat stripper) which can be found at a reasonable price in store.

• If you overheat the sleeve slightly (heavy shrinking), it will happen that the sleeve will slip a little.  That is simply due to the fact that the interior resin has melted. You have sufficient time to slide it into its proper place before the sleeving hardens.

• To remove a sleeve, use a Stanley knife to cut it along its length (delicately if it covering a cable). The resin can be removed with thinners (white spirit, acetone...). However, if from the outset your connection is intended to be able to be removed, use instead a self amalgamating ribbon or waterproof mastic of the type we also sell.  The heatshrink sleeve is primarily intended for a permanent installation.
