Adhesives for Heat-shrinkable Components

Macromelt products for application to heat-shrinkable components have been designed to meet the specific needs of this technology. These components consist of crosslinked polyolefins and are manufactured in expanded form as extruded and molded components such as end caps, shrink sleeves and tubes. They serve for sealing cables-connectors to make them pressure- and moisture-tight.

On the inside they are coated with hotmelt adhesive. When heated, these components shrink down to a certain size and press the hotmelt adhesive tightly around all uneven areas of the cable covering. In addition, heat shrinkable components are increasingly being used for connecting power cables.
