Heat Shrink Sleeving
Polyolefin is a general, flexible heat shrink tubing which can be used for a wide range of applications, including insulation, mechanical protection and marking. PVC heat shrink is specially formulated to give maximum quality whilst retaining low cost. Rated at 105c, heat stabilized, it has a good flame retardancy and meets the general requirements of UL224.
Used to insulate from abrasion and temperature damage. Self-extinguishing in 30 seconds and manufactured in a range of sizes and colours. U.L PVC Sleeving – U.L Approved 300v & 600v-A 105c rated flexible PVC approved to UL224. Passes the VW1 flame test and is rated by Underwriters Laboratories at 300v or 600v depending on the wall thickness.
This limited fire hazard (LSFOH) sleeving is halogen free making it ideal for protecting wire and cables in areas where smoke and fume emissions must be minimised. PTFE sleeving benefits from a low coefficient friction and a high dielectric strength, excellent chemical resistance to most acids, alkalis and petroleum products.
Grommet Strips & Grommets
Grommet strip is a close-fitting profile that fits without the need for adhesive and provides effective edge protection against chaffing of cables through cut-out and holes. Standard grommet is manufactured from LDPE and we also offer a flame retardant grade.
