This document specifies the required characteristics for four types of heat-shrinkable limited fire hazard sleevings for use in aircraft electrical systems at operating temperatures between 65 °C and 150 °C.
This sleeving is flexible, flame retarded and emits minimum smoke, gases and corrosive by-products when exposed to fire. It is available with various wall thicknesses and also in a higher shrink ratio according to the application and degree of mechanical protection required. It is suitable for use (e.g. as cable protection) in areas where smoke, gases or corrosive by-products would constitute a particular hazard.
Type A: Medium wall, shrink ratio 2:1 and is normally supplied with internal diameters up to 30 mm.
The standard colour is black.
Sizes or colours other than those specifically listed in this document may be available. These items shall be considered to comply with this document if they comply with the property requirements listed in Table 2 except for dimensions and mass.
