Flexible insulating sleeving – Part 3: Specifications for individual types of sleeving – Sheet 282: Heat-shrinkable, polyolefin sleeving – Stress control
|Publication Date:||1 June 2010|
|ICS Code (Plastics and rubber insulating materials):||29.035.20|
This part of IEC 60684 gives the requirements for two types of heat-shrinkable, polyolefin sleeving, stress control, not flame retarded, with a nominal shrink ratio up to 3:1.
This sleeving has been found suitable for use up to temperatures of 100 °C.
- Type A : Medium wall Internal diameter up to 65,0 mm typically
- Type B : Thick wall Internal diameter up to 95,0 mm typically
These sleevings are normally supplied in colour black.
Since these types of sleevings cover a significantly large range of sizes and wall thicknesses, Tables A.1 and A.2 in this standard provides guidance to the range of sizes available. The actual size shall be agreed between the user and the supplier.
Materials which conform to this specification meet established levels of performance. However, the selection of a material by a user for a specific application should be based on the actual requirements necessary for adequate performance in that application and not based on this specification alone.
This sleeving is designed to be used in MV cable accessories and as such electrical performance must be proven as part of the assembly. Examples of this are described in HD 629 and the IEC 60502 series.
