Cable Repair Sleeves

Heat-shrinkable wraparound sleeves are a fast, versatile and permanent method of repair for damaged cable outer sheaths. Upon application of heat, the sleeve shrinks and adhesive melts and bonds to the cable sheath, creating a permanent seal against moisture entry into the cable. Wraparound sleeves are useful for repairs to cable outer sheath where it is not possible to use tubular sleeves.

ZCSM - Heat-Shrinkable Heavy-Wall Tubing for Low Fire Hazard Areas

This new low fire hazard material has been developed using the latest polymer technology to provide low smoke, low toxicity and low acid gas generation while being highly flame retardant and having a low calorific value.

  • ZCSM tubing is halogen-free and flame-retardant. A range of established tests, such as flame propagation tests, limiting oxygen index and temperature index have been carried out to assess the flame retardation properties of this material
  • Corrosion damage depends on the amount of acid gases generated when a material is burned, and therefore on the level of halogens and other acidic components in the insulation material. Pyrolytic analyses show only trace quantities of these substances in the ZCSM tubing. The low toxicity index rating derived from measurements of these and further Combustion products provide additional evidence of the material's suitability for meeting special requirements of this kind
