Flexible insulating sleeving - Part 3: Specifications for individual types of sleeving - Sheet 285: Heat-shrinkable polyolefin sleeving, for medium voltage joint insulation
|Publication Date:||1 October 2014|

This part of IEC 60684 gives the requirements for heat-shrinkable sleeving for medium voltage joint insulation, with a range of shrink ratios.
This sleeving has been found suitable up to temperatures of 100 °C.
These sleevings are normally supplied in colour, red or brown.
Since this type of sleevings covers a significantly large range of sizes and wall thicknesses, the actual size will be agreed between the purchaser and supplier.
Materials which conform to this standard 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 standard alone. This sleeving is designed to be used in medium voltage cable accessories and as such electrical performance will be proven as part of the assembly. Examples of this are described in HD 629 and IEC 60502.
