Special Purpose Tubing Overview

Special Purpose Wall Tubing
Special Purpose Wall Tubing
When specially designed products are needed to meet a customer's design specifications, TE Connectivity offers a wide variety of special purpose tubing. The special purpose tubing is available in a variety of materials, colors, shrink ratios, and sizes. Benefits of this type of tubing include compliance with AMS-DTL-23053 standards and UL/CSA recognition.
    Key Features
  • High-performance flexible fluoropolymer tubing designed for jacketing and bundling of wires to form light-duty harnesses, especially where low profile, abrasion resistance and flexibility are needed
  • 2:1 shrink ratio
  • Highly flame-resistant
  • Excellent physical and electrical properties after exposure to many chemicals and solvents at 50?C (not recommended to use with ketones)
  • Agency Recognition:  UL; AMS-DTL-23053/18, Class 2; RoHS Compliant
  • RT-375

  • Clear, flexible fluoropolymer tubing used to protect wire and cable markers subject to extreme abuse, while permitting full inspectability of each item covered.
  • 2:1 shrink ratio
  • Exceptional clarity
  • Toughness, chemical resistance and high-temperature performance
  • Highly flame-resistance
  • Good mechanical strength and cut-through resistance
  • Agency Recognition:  UL; CSA; AMS-DTL-23053/18, Class 2; RoHS Compliant
  • RW-175

  • High-temperature, chemically resistant polyvinylidene fluoride tubing especially suitable for applications requiring high temperature performance, outstanding abrasion resistance and cut-through resistance or superior chemical and solvent properties
  • 2:1 shrink ratio
  • Tough semirigid very thin wall insulation tubing
  • Protection from most industrial solvents, fuels, and chemicals
  • Agency Recognition:   UL, AMS-DTL-23053/8; Def Stan. 59-97 Type 3; VG 95343 Pt 5 Type F; BS 3G 198 Pt4; VDE 0341 Pt 9005; RoHS Compliant
  • ES/PD Caps

  • Specially designed to provide mechanical and environmental protection of stub splices in electrical harnesses
  • 3:1 shrink ratio (PD Caps)
  • 4:1 shrink ratio (ES Caps)
  • Rapid simple installation
  • Mechanically tough outer jacket that provides excellent strain relief, abrasion protection, vibration and flexing
  • PD caps provide a splash-resistant, moisture resistant covering (not intended for full immersion in a fluid)
  • Agency Recognition:  UL; RoHS Compliant
  • Low Toxicity- XFFR/ZH2/ZH4

  • Highly flame-retardant, low-recovery-temperature ZEROHAL tubing. Recommended for commercial electronics, rail and mass transit, automotive, elevators, and construction industries.
  • 2:1 shrink ratio
  • Essentially free of Halogens
  • ZH2 is a standard wall, flexible polyolefin tubing
  • ZH4 is a thin wall, very flexible polyolefin tubing
  • Agency Recognition:  UL; CSA; RoHS Compliant
  • HFT5000

  • Highly flexible woven fabric designed primarily to provide mechanical abrasion protection for components such as rubber hoes, plastic pipes and harness wiring bundles.
  • 2:1 shrink ratio
  • Essentially free of halogens
  • Outstanding abrasion resistance over a wide temperature range
  • Resistant to harsh environments
  • Low shrink temperature for safe installation onto heat sensitive substrates
  • Performs well at an extended temperature range
  • Agency Recognition:  UL; RoHS Compliant
  • Rayblock 85/ Rayblock 105

  • Heat shrinkable water-blocking system designed to provide consistent sealing for cable bundles and the back of connectors
  • Environmentally seals wire bundles up to 20 wires
  • Withstands temperature excursions to 105?C (Rayblock 85)
  • Withstands temperature excursions to 120?C (Rayblock 105)
  • Excellent strain relief and noise reduction
  • Offers a low-profile installed product only marginally larger than the cable bundle itself
  • Agency Recognition:  RoHS Compliant
  • DR-25

  • Flexible, Chemical and abrasion resistant tubing specially formulated for optimum high-temperature fluid resistance and long term heat resistance
  • 2:1 shrink ratio
  • System 25 tubing
  • Flame-retardant
  • Agency Recognition:  AMS-DTL-23053/16; VG95343 Part 5 Type D; VDE 0341/Pt 9005; Def Stan 59-97 Issue 3 Type 6B; BS 4G-198 Part3 10A; RoHS Compliant
