Wrap Around/Zipper Tube

Heatshrink-Wrap Around/Zipper Tube

RWSM Zipper Tube is a Cross-Linked Polyolefin Heatshrink ‘Tube’ which is folded around the cable, zipped up with a stainless steel channel and then shrunk.

Heatshrink-Wrap Around/Zipper Tube

  1. Cable repair without cutting the cable
  2. Ideal for in situ field installation
  3. Jointing in tight areas
  4. Re-entering a joint with minimal disruption, unlike epoxy joint
  5. 100% waterproof and low water absorption
  6. Quick start up time, after completing joint
  7. Repair of unpressurised pipes
  8. Non meltable
  9. Resistant to decay, chemicals, corrosion

Installation recommendations are virtually the same as for SMDW. When applying heat, check that carbonisation or crazing does not occur and do not apply heat directly onto the stainless steel channel. When shrinkage has been completed, the stippled effect on the tube surface will not be noticeable since thermochroic paint has changed colour.
