Side Entry Repair Sleeve Delivers First Permanent Solution
TE Connectivity launches the new C-Wrap side entry repair sleeve for use in aerospace, defense and marine applications. The repair sleeve delivers an environment resistant repair to damaged primary wire with nicks, chaffed and radial cracks, while providing superior long-term performance.
“Our innovative C-Wrap device was designed specifically to meet the requests of the MRO community,” said Janeann Avants, product manager, Global Aerospace, Defense & Marine, TE Connectivity. “Our design engineers focused on pushing the functionality and performance to deliver a great, permanent solution for wire repair. This cannot be found anywhere else.”
The easy-to-install solution consists of two pieces, the outer tubing and adhesive. The C-Wrap device is small in diameter and short in length, providing easy installation. With its wrap-around design, the repair sleeve eliminates the need to de-pin the connector for repair, saving time, cost and manpower. Its environment-resistant qualities prevent galvanic corrosion and allow use in a temperature range of -65°C to +150°C, all while meeting the performance requirements of D-6201.
Made of a meltable adhesive and radiation cross-linked modified fluoroelastomer insulation sleeve, the C-Wrap device meets the performance requirements of TE Connectivity D-6201 specification. Designed for long-term performance, the repair kit offers a permanent repair to the chaffed or cracked wire insulation. The C-Wrap device is color-coded, which provides proper sizing for each application, as well as ease of use.
