Clear wire connector insulation lets inspectors see the difference

December 5, 2018 – Burndy has introduced clear cold shrink tubing to insulate wire connectors while keeping them easily visible for inspections.

Similar to Burndy’s clear heat shrink tubing, the new product enables visual inspections to verify die embossment, the correct number and locations of crimps and the proper strip length, with no exposed wire. As a result, the company claims, the product provides labour/time savings of 60%.

The tubing has passed Underwriters Laboratories’ (UL’s) Glow Wire Test and is listed by UL in Canada and the U.S. as an insulating cover in accordance with UL standard 486A/B, Wire Connectors. It can be installed with a recyclable ripcord.
