Have you tried our H420 range of EPDM cold shrink tubing? If you haven’t it might be time to give it a try. It offers high quality reliable insulation and sealing protection for a wide variety of indoor and outdoor applications and it doesn’t require a costly and potentially harmful heat source like a blow torch or heat gun.
The trick is that the tubing is already shrunk but has been stretched over a removable core. All you have to do is put the tubing into position and remove the core. In seconds the tubing fastens tight creating a moisture resistant seal around any connection or cable.
And that is that. Still unconvinced? Here are ten reasons to give EPDM rubber cold shrink tubing a shot:
- Cold shrink tubing can be used as primary electrical insulation for all rubber and plastic insulated wire or cable splicing up to 1000 volts.
- But it isn’t just an electrical insulator. It provides physical protection and complete moisture resistance, making it perfect for couplings, connectors, hoses and terminal lugs.
- Need cable jacket and sheath repairs? Yep, cold shrink is ideal for that too.
- Cold shrink provides environmental sealing communication connectors too and boasts many non-electrical applications.
- When non-pressurised hoses and conduits have been damaged, a length of EPDM can provide an airtight and waterproof seal.
- As a strong environmental protector, these products can safeguard fittings and couplings against corrosion.
- Forget water and electricity, cold shrink tubing is also resistant to high temperatures…
- …and UV light and ozone damage.
Our H420 EPDM rubber cold shrink tubing has an operating temperature range of -66°F (-55°C) to 500°F (260°C) and withstands heavy moisture including direct splashes. There are many reasons to try cold shrink tubing that we really needn’t continue. It’s simply up to you to try it out.
