3M™ Wraparound Heat Shrink Cable Repair sleeves are designed to quickly repair damaged cable jacketing. They are also suitable for use with cable joints and as additional corrosion protection on undamaged cables.
The 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 then used to fully close the sleeve.
