Tyco Electronics introduces its Raychem brand URHT heat-shrinkable tubing with an eight-to-one shrink ratio. The tubing is flame retardant, black, cross linked polyolefin tubing with an ultra high shrink ratio, making it suitable for applications where the tubing must conform to an oddly shaped substrate or fit over large objects like connectors and other components that are found in electrical wiring harnesses. For many connector and cable repair applications, it will allow repairs to be made without de-pinning the connector. In addition to the applications in wiring harness repair, the tubing can also be used to insulate electronic components and other electrical assemblies and devices. It is suitable for OEM applications in the aerospace and defense market as well as the industrial and commercial field.
