Title Flexible insulating sleeving - Part 3: Specifications for individual types of sleeving - Sheet 271: Heat-shrinkable elastomer sleeving, flame retarded, fluid resistant, shrink ratio 2:1
Project Number 15644
Abstract/Scope Gives the requirements for two types of heat-shrinkable, flame retarded, fluid resistant, elastomer sleevings, with a nominal shrink ratio of 2:1 for use at temperatures up to 120 C. Type A: Standard wall thickness Type B: Thin wall thickness These sleevings are normally supplied with internal diameters up to 102 mm for the standard wall thickness and up to 51 mm for the thin wall thickness.The standard colour is black. Sizes 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 3, 4, 5 and 6, except for dimensions and mass. 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 changes with regard to the previous edition: - Replacement of the thermal endurance test method according to EN 60216 with a long term ageing test i.e. 3 000 h at the recommended maximum temperature found suitable for use, in order to provide safe thermal test data within a workable time scale. It has also been combined with Sheet 272. - Sheet 272 has been withdrawn.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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