Includes all amendments and changes through Reaffirmation Notice , January 2012
Published By:SAE International (SAE)
This specification covers a non-crosslinked polyvinyl chloride plastic in the form of flexible, thinwall, heat-shrinkable tubing with a low recovery temperature.
These products have been used typically as a flexible, electrical insulation tubing whose diameter can be reduced to a predetermined size by heating to 150 °C (302 °F) or higher, but usage is not limited to such applications. This tubing is stable for continuous exposure from -20 to + 150 °C (-4 to +221 °F).
