EPDM Cold shrinkable sleeve
EPDM Cold shrinkable sleeve made from EPDM, Cold Shrink EPDM tubings are suitable for primary insulation on low voltage cables and cable splices up to 1kv, it provide electrical protection and moisture sealing for high-voltage, air-insulated connectors and cable lugs such as spacer cable and cable lug connections to bus bar, our EPDM cold shrink tubes also provide electrical insulation of secondary splices including copper connectors.
EPDM Cold shrinkable sleeves are cold applied, quicker, easier and safer to install than heat shrink tubes, our cold shrink sleeves is ideal where hot work permits are difficult to obtain and used extensively in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries.
What is cold shrinkable sleeve? Why it name cold shrink tubing?
What’s cold contraction tubes?
Cold shrinkable tube usually refers to cold shrink type cable accessories.
The cold shrink cable accessories are made of elastomer materials (commonly used silicone rubber and ethylene propylene rubber), which are molded by vulcanization in factories, and then made up of various cable accessories by expanding and lining with plastic spiral support.
When the cold shrink tube is installed, these pre expansion parts are sheathed at the ends or joints of the treated cables, and the cable accessories attached to the cable insulation are drawn out the internal supporting plastic spiral bars.
Because the elastic retracting at room temperature, not like heat shrinkable tube to use fire heating shrinkage, so commonly known as cold contraction tubes, or cold shrinkable sleeve.
