The semi-flattened oval shape of the new TTMS-MP cable marker sleeves makes it faster and easier to slip onto cables, thereby speeding installation. Designed for computer-based printing using a T2000CT printer, the heat-shrink marker sleeves are supplied in large packs—typically 50 or 100 meters—to minimize spool changes during a print run. The product format makes TTMS-MP identification tubing suitable for applications where in-sequence kitting is not of over-riding importance, for example where several hundred identical markers are required.
The marker sleeves are made from durable, flame-retardant, and radiation-cross-linked heat shrinkable polyolefin, with an operating temperature range of -55°C to +135°C. Available in sizes ranging from 2.4mm to 50.8mm, most sizes offer a 3:1 shrink ratio. The 38.1-mm and 50.8-mm sleeves have a 2:1 shrink ratio.
Meeting the mark permanence requirements of SAE AS81531 and MIL-STD-202 both before and after shrinking, marks are permanent immediately upon printing and remain legible even when exposed to abrasion, aggressive cleaning solvents, and military fuels and oils. TTMS-MP sleeves meet the performance requirements of SAE-ASM-DTL-23053/5 class 1 and are UL listed and CSA Certified.
