Overview

Our Raychem EPKT Heat Shrink Terminations are recognized to be reliable and fast to install. A proven system: the EPKT heat shrink Terminations give consistent performance in extreme temperatures, atmospheric pollution, and ultra-violet light has proven the insulating and sealing ability of our Raychem cable terminations for more than 35 years.

Ease of installation: They are installed by way of heat-shrinking, this system saves time, eliminates special equipment and simplifies work overhead, and works in confined spaces. Varying cable constructions can be easily accommodated, and every kit typically covers three to four cable sizes. Thus inventories are reduced and stock-keeping minimized.

Performance: Raychem cable terminations meet our specification PPS 3013, which includes the major national standards and international norms requirements and meets CENELEC 50393. High performance and efficiency are the results of our expertise in materials science and electrical power engineering, gained through a sustained research effort and extensive experience as one of the largest cable accessory makers.
