Boots

Boots

Heatshrink Boots are used to seal and waterproof cable terminations, by sealing the insulated conductors to the cable jacket. They have a hot melt glue liner which melts while the boot is shrinking and creates a strong bond between the boot and the cable.

Heatshrink Boots

  1. Quick and simple installation of waterproof termination
  2. High resistance to tearing and high tensile strength
  3. Resistant to decay, chemicals and corrosion

To select a boot, measure the outside diameter of the cable and order the next size up by checking dimension ‘A’ in the accompanying table. To install the boot, ensure that the insulation of the cable and conductor are clean and grease free, and roughen with emery paper for a good glue bond. Shrink the boot from the middle out with a heatgun or soft yellow gas flame until adhesive extrudes. Avoid local overheating during shrinkage process.
