Sager Electronics, a leading North American distributor of Interconnect, Power and Electromechanical components,
is now stocking TE Connectivity’s single wall flame retardant (SWFR) heat shrink tubing. This latest addition to the RAYCHEM tubing product line is environmentally friendly and provides excellent electrical insulation and mechanical protection from abrasion.
These single wall heat shrink tubing products are rated for the UL VW-1 flammability test specified by the UL 224 standard. Because the highly flame-retardant polyolefin jacket is non-halogenated, SWFR tubing can be used in confined-space applications where it is unacceptable for materials containing halogen to burn and potentially emit toxins. SWFR products offer an optimum solution for insulating and mechanically protecting components, connections and terminations across many applications from industrial controls to home appliances and mass transit vehicles.
