PRT® is a wrap-around, heat-shrinkable tubing that provides a means of adding additional insulation to an assembled wire or cable. PRT® can be used to protect in-service electrical systems without the need to remove or disassemble the associated connectors and end hardware. This product is also a great in-service repair tubing where a side-entry installation is required.
A heat gun is used to recover the material in a fashion similar to standard, non-split, heat-shrinkable tubing. This material has an operational temperature range of -55° to 135°C (-67° to 275°F).
