Product Description
The HDCW Wraparound Heat Shrink Cable Repair
Sleeve is designed to repair damaged cable sheaths. It is
also suitable for use with cable joints and as additional
corrosion protection on undamaged cables.
Quick and easy to apply, it provides maximum
protection against mechanical stress, even in the most
aggressive environments. The inner wall of the sleeve is
coated with hot melt adhesive to achieve a safe and
watertight bond with the cable and give a perfect seal
when heat is applied, while a corrosion proof metal clip
is used to fully close the sleeve.
Heat shrinkable Cable Repair Sleeves are available in a
range of sizes to fit cable diameters from 10 - 140mm
and in four lengths from 250 – 1000mm.
Applications
HDCW is ideal to quickly and safely repair damaged
cable sheaths. It may also be used with joints and as
additional corrosion protection on undamaged cables.
Technical Information
HDCW is made from modified cross-linked polyolefin
with a hot-melt adhesive coated to the inner side of the
sleeve. Upon heating, the sleeve shrinks and the
adhesive melts, thereby achieving a safe and watertight
bond between the sleeve and the cable. A corrosion
proof metal clip is used to fully close the sleeve.
