TMS-SCE marker sleeves are designed to meet the wire and cable marking needs of manufacturers with high performance requirements. Made from durable, flame retarded, radiationcrosslinked heat-shrinkable polyolefin, TMS-SCE marker sleeves can be used in a wide variety of applications. The marker sleeves meet the performance requirements of SAE-AMS- DTL-23053/5 classes 1 and 3 and the TMS-SCE-2X products are made from tubing fully compliant with this specification. The marks are permanent immediately after printing and remain legible even when exposed to abrasion, aggressive cleaning solvents, and military fuels and oils. The sleeves meet the mark permanence requirements of SAE AS81531 4.6.2 and MIL-STD-202F both before and after shrinking
Both 2:1 and 3:1 shrink ratios are available. The 2:1 products provide a thick, rugged sleeve wall and are particularly easy to handle. The lightweight 3:1 products provide extremely fast shrinking and cover a wider range of wire diameters, thus simplifying inventory.
The marker sleeves are designed to be printed by computer-driven dot matrix or thermal transfer printers, providing several advantages in terms of reduced errors, cycle time and cost.
Supplied in a thin, flat “ladder” format, the sleeves are held horizontally between two hole-punched polyester strips.The ladder format provides automatic kitting of the marker sleeves in the desired sequence. A standard heat gun with reflector is used to shrink the sleeves onto the wire or cable.
