Heat-Shrink Splices Provide Reliable Junctions

To handle wire splicing chores, the PolyCrimps employ a one-piece, adhesive-lined, polyethylene-insulating sleeve with a pre-installed, seamless crimp barrel. The heat-shrinkable crimp splices provide electrical insulation, protection from contaminants, and strain relief. Rated for operation with voltages up to 600 Vac, the splices have a shrink ratio of approximately 2:1. The insulation is coded with one of three colors: red accepts 22 to18 AWG wire, blue accommodates 16 to 18 AWG wire, and yellow accepts 12 to 10 AWG wire. Operating temperatures range from -55°C to 125°C with a minimum shrink temperature of 150°C. Prices range from $7.75 to $16.90 per one hundred pieces, depending on size and quantity.
