Intended for use on heavy duty cables or harness systems such as ground support.
/2 and /3:
Used for light-duty harnessing or wire bundling.
Used for one-step potting, encapsulation, or moisture sealing and corrosion protection of
electrical components or terminations.
Used for light-duty harness jackets, wire color coding, marking, or identification.
Used for wire identification, marking, or strain relief.
Used for light-duty wire identification and component covering.
Used for wire or termination strain relief at elevated temperatures.
Used for high-or low-temperature applications or where resistance to melting in high-blast
flame is required.
Used where strain relief is necessary at high temperatures.
Used at high temperatures where resistance to flame is important to protect high-
temperature cable, components, and terminations.
Used in elevated-temperature applications or where exposure to elevated-temperature
solvents is expected.
Used as component and electronic lead strain relief where low expansion ratios are
satisfactory. Operates over a fairly wide temperature range.
Used for repair of heavy duty cables and splice covers.
Used on heavy duty cables or harness systems that are subjected to high levels of physical
abuse and exposure to fuels and oils coupled with high-and low- temperature extremes.
Tables 1-18 and 1-19 provide part numbers for two types of shrinkable tubing, M23053/5 and
M23053/4. These were chosen because of their wide range of sizes (M23053/5) and their abilities to
provide potting, encapsulating, or moisture sealing of electrical components (M23053/4).
