Title Flexible insulating sleeving - Part 3: Specifications for individual types of sleeving - Sheet 209: Heat-shrinkable polyolefin sleeving, general purpose, flame retarded, shrink ratio 2:1
Project Number 14293
Abstract/Scope Gives the requirements for one type of general purpose, flexible, flame retarded, heat-shrinkable polyolefin sleeving with a nominal minimum shrink ratio of 2:1. This sleeving has been found suitable for use at temperatures up to 125 °C. It is normally available in internal diameters up to 102 mm as supplied and in the following colours: black, brown, white, red, yellow, green, blue, orange, violet, grey and yellow/green. Sizes, shrink ratios or colours other than those specifically listed in this standard may be available as custom items. These items are considered to comply with this standard if they comply with the property requirements listed in Tables 2 and 3, excluding dimensions. Materials which conform to this specification meet established levels of performance. However, the selection of a material by a user for a specific application should be based on the actual requirements necessary for adequate performance in that application and not based on this specification alone. This edition includes the following significant technical changes from the previous edition: it reverts to the metric equivalent of the established imperial size range and aligns the requirements with the 2nd edition of EN 60684-2.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
