Product Data Sheet
 
Characteristics
This data sheet covers the requirements for heat shrink end caps whose dimension will shrink to a predetermined size up on the application of heat above 125 deg. C. Color of the end caps is black. The end caps are pre-coated on the machine in film form or spiral form, with a hot melt adhesive of translucent, yellowish color.
 
Typical Applications
End caps are used for protecting the unused cable end from the environmental effects. They also offer insulation on the unused end of electrical cable connected to supply. IKEBANA end caps with film form coating are suitable for pressurized and with spiral form coating for unpressurized telecommunications cables and full range of electrical cables of PVC, XLPE, PILC or rubber type jackets. The application table gives the end cap dimensions and cable diameter range of usage for each model. For pressurized telecom cables, the end caps are fitted with a non return air valve.

End Caps (End Seals)
 
Materials
The base material of the end caps is thermally stabilized, cross linked polyolefin. The end cap is coated inside with a polyamide based hot melt adhesive. The raw material is compounded with a package of chemical additives offering protection against oxidation, ozone , UV radiation etc.
 
Ordering for End Caps Manufactured from Special Materials
End caps can be supplied against specific orders manufactured from semi-conducting or non-tracking high voltage (Red) materials. Non-tracking HV end caps are coated with butyl rubber based mastic, which is water-proof, insulating and non-tracking. Semi-con end caps are coated with semi-conductive mastic or poly-amide based hot melt adhesive or suitable combination of both.

Printing on the Product
Each Ikebana end cap is printed with a heat resistant printing ink of white color. Printed information includes:
1. Ikebana logo
2. Product code
3. Applicable cable diameter usage range.
 
Packaging
For export, the end caps are packed telescopically, in a convenient way inside a polythene bag, in order to reduce consignment volume. End caps of models IXL 100S to IXL 140 are packed end to end in a tubular polythene bag sealed on both ends. Larger end caps sizes IXL 150, IXL 160 and IXL 170 are packed in individual polythene bags with both ends sealed. Outer packing is a standardized Ikebana corrugated carton with strapping and a label with information of customer and contents. It also has QA approval seal.
