3M™ 051128-57237 QSLV-M Low Voltage Cold Shrink Quick Insulator, 0.4 in Min Dia, 1.6 in Dia, 2-1/2 in L, 1400 psi Tensile, EPDM
3M™ Cold Shrink Quick Splice low voltage QSLV-M are open-ended tubular rubber sleeves with sealing mastic on each end which are factory expanded and assembled onto a unique three-core system. Two cores, oneon each end, are removed after the QSLV-M insulator has been centered over an inline connector, allowing the ends of the tube to shrink and form a water resistant seal. The third, center segment of the core remains inside the cold shrink tube, acting as a support structure. Sizing of the cores and tube, along with the sealing mastic on each end, is designed to accommodate the variance in connectors and connector crimping techniques and final dimensions without degrading the seal and insulating characteristics of the EPDM rubber tube, while making core removal easy. Two diameter sizes will cover a range of 1000 volt or less cable from 8 AWG through 500 kcmil, copper and aluminum conductors with crimped connectors.
