All about Heat-shrink power cable wiring

by Yamuna Densons Yamuna Cable Accessories Pvt Ltd
A shrinkable plastic tube used in electric wiring. It is mainly used to insulate electric wires that provide abrasion resistance and earthling protection. This is mainly used in the joints where the wires are getting connected to another set of wires or to the main point where they will be putting. It can get used to prevent any leakage or tear or bundle a bunch of wires. Heat-shrink power cables are usually made out of polyolefin. This kind of wires shrinks radically between one half-one sixth of the diameter of the cable. Heat Shrink Cable Joints Manufacturers makes different types of heat shrink power cable wirings with different purposes.

Type of Heat-Shrinkable power cables

Heat-shrink cables are available in different colours and for different purposes. At the very beginning when the heat-shrink power cable just came into the market they were only being used for computer wiring. Heat-shrink cables gave computers a very neat and clean look, and this appearance was considered to very pleasing and tidy. After coming to know about this new kind of cable Heat Shrink Cable Joints Manufacturers started making luminous and UV reactive Power cables. The conductive lined heat-shrink cable is also available for use on the unsoldered joints.

Materials of Heat-shrink power cable joints

Different purposes need different types of materials to be useful.
Elastomeric, has high flexibility even at low temperatures and they meet stringent international specifications. their minimum operating temperature range is between -74 to 150 degree Celsius.

FEP or Fluorinated ethylene propylene and it is a lower cost high flexibility alternative options to PTFE. It has versatile usages and can be dunked into chemical and solvents.

Polyolefin is the most common kind of heat-shrink cable of them all. Its maximum temperature continues from -55 to 135 degree Celsius. It is widely used by the military, aerospace and railway industries.

Information about Heat-shrink power cables

Heat-shrink power cable joining are invented in the mid-90s. Made out of a thermoplastic material like PVC, Polyolefin, neoprene etc. The manufacturing process is something like, the material out of which the joints will be made are chosen and mixed with colourants and stabilizers. It is made usually by taking it to a vacuum chamber where it is shaped and comes to its melting point. All Heat Shrinkable Power Cable Jointing Kits are made this way. Then it is cooled to expand in size into its actual size. At the very end of this process, the heat-shrink cable got extruded into its expanded size.

Usages of Heat-shrink power cable joints

The actual power cable joint is applied first then after the connection is made it slid back to the joint where it goes directly to cover the joint. If the fit is right in one turn then the silicone lubricant can be put directly on the joint. The motto is that the heat-shrink cap should fit the joint perfectly. The last stage is to put the joint into an oven and keep heating it to the point it shrinks. Heat Shrinkable Power Cable Jointing Kits includes all the materials you'll need to make the heat shrink joint and some emergency items and tools are also included in this kit.

These are all the basic information about a heat-shrink power cable joins you will ever need to know.
