Title Flexible insulating sleeving - Part 3: Specifications for individual types of sleeving - Sheet 216: Heat-shrinkable, flame-retarded, limited-fire hazard sleeving
Project Number 11917
Abstract/Scope Gives the requirements for four types of heat-shrinkable, flame- retarded, limited-fire-hazard sleeving with a thermal endurance rating of 105 °C as shown below: Class A: thin wall, shrink ratio 2:1, internal diameter up to 102,0 mm Class B: medium wall, shrink ratio 2:1, internal diameter up to 60,0 mm Class C: thick wall, shrink ratio 2:1, internal diameter up to 51,0 mm Class D: medium wall, shrink ratio 3:1, internal diameter up to 40,0 mm 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.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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