Flexible insulating sleeving - Part 3: Specifications for individual types of sleeving - Sheet 247: Heat-shrinkable, polyolefin sleeving, dual wall, not flame retarded, thick and medium wall

IEC 60684-3-247:2019 is available as IEC 60684-3-247:2019 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.
IEC 60684-3-247:2019 gives the requirements for two types of heat-shrinkable, polyolefin sleeving, dual wall, not flame retarded with a nominal shrink ratio of 3:1. This sleeving has been found suitable for use at temperatures of up to 100 °C.
- Type A: Medium wall, internal diameter up to 200,0 mm typically.
- Type B: Thick wall, internal diameter up to 200,0 mm typically.
These sleevings are normally supplied in colour black. Since these types of sleving cover a significantly large range of sizes and wall thicknesses, Annex A (Tables A.1 and A.2) provides a guide to the range of sizes available. The actual size will be agreed between the user and supplier. Materials which conform to this specification meet established levels of performance. However, the selection of a material by a user for a specific application will be based on the actual requirements necessary for adequate performance in that application and not based on this specification alone. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2011 and Amendment 1:2016. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous editions:
- removal of the colour fastness to light test, as this is covered by the test for carbon black content;
- change of low temperature flexibility test to -20 °C to align with sheet 214;
- change of final conditioning temperature of peel strength samples to 200 ºC to align with the temperature in Clause 5;
- removal of the fungus resistance test as there is no evidence that fungus growth is an issue either by testing or in use.

Gaines isolantes souples - Partie 3: Spécifications pour types particuliers de gaines - Feuille 247: Gaines thermorétractables en polyoléfine, à double paroi, non ignifugées à paroi épaisse et moyenne

IEC 60684-3-247:2019 est disponible sous forme de IEC 60684-3-247:2019 RLV qui contient la Norme internationale et sa version Redline, illustrant les modifications du contenu technique depuis l'édition précédente.
L'IEC 60684-3-247:2019 donne les exigences relatives à deux types de gaines thermorétractables en polyoléfine, à double paroi, non ignifugées, dont le rapport de rétreint nominal est 3:1. Ces gaines se sont avérées appropriées pour une utilisation à des températures allant jusqu’à 100 °C.
- Type A: Paroi moyenne, diamètre intérieur généralement jusqu’à 200 mm
- Type B: Paroi épaisse, diamètre intérieur généralement jusqu’à 200 mm
La couleur de ces gaines est normalement le noir. Comme ces types de gaines couvrent une plage très étendue de tailles et d’épaisseurs de paroi, l'Annexe A (Tableaux A.1 et A.2) fournit un guide des tailles disponibles dans cette plage. La taille réelle fait l’objet d’un accord entre l’utilisateur et le fournisseur.Anchor Les matériaux conformes à la présente spécification satisfont à des niveaux de performances établis. Cependant, le choix d’un matériau par un utilisateur, pour une application spécifique, est fondé sur les exigences réelles nécessaires pour obtenir des performances adéquates pour l'application concernée, et n'est pas fondé sur cette seule spécification. Cette deuxième édition annule et remplace la première édition parue en 2011 et l'Amendement 1:2016. Cette édition constitue une révision technique.
Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente:
- suppression de l'essai de solidité de la couleur à la lumière, cet essai étant couvert par l'essai de détermination de la teneur en noir de carbone;
- modification de la température de l'essai de flexion à basse température qui devient -20 °C pour aligner la valeur avec celle donnée dans la feuille 214;
- modification de la température de conditionnement finale des échantillons pour la résistance à l'arrachement qui devient 200 ºC pour aligner la valeur avec celle donnée à l'Article 5;
- suppression de l'essai de résistance aux moisissures étant donné qu'il n'a pas été démontré, ni par des essais, ni en fonctionnement, que le développement de moisissures constituait un problème.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 60684-3-247 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 15:

Solid electrical insulating materials.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2011 and
Amendment 1:2016. This edition constitutes a technical revision.

INTRODUCTION

This document is one of a series of standards which deals with flexible insulating sleeving for

electrical purposes.
The series consists of three parts:
Part 1: Definitions and general requirements (IEC 60684-1)
Part 2: Methods of test (IEC 60684-2)
Part 3: Specifications for individual types of sleeving (IEC 60684-3)
This document comprises one of the sheets of Part 3 as follows:

Sheet 247: Heat-shrinkable, polyolefin sleeving, dual wall, not flame retarded, thick and

medium wall

FLEXIBLE INSULATING SLEEVING –
Part 3: Specifications for individual types of sleeving –
Sheet 247: Heat-shrinkable, polyolefin sleeving, dual wall,
not flame retarded, thick and medium wall
1 Scope

This part of IEC 60684 gives the requirements for two types of heat-shrinkable, polyolefin

sleeving, dual wall, not flame retarded with a nominal shrink ratio of 3:1.
This sleeving has been found suitable for use at temperatures of up to 100 °C.
• Type A: Medium wall, internal diameter up to 200,0 mm typically.
• Type B: Thick wall, internal diameter up to 200,0 mm typically.
These sleevings are normally supplied in colour black.

Since these types of sleving cover a significantly large range of sizes and wall thicknesses,

Annex A (Tables A.1 and A.2) provides a guide to the range of sizes available. The actual size

will be agreed between the user and supplier.

Materials which conform to this specification meet established levels of performance. However,

the selection of a material by a user for a specific application will be based on the actual

requirements necessary for adequate performance in that application and not based on this

specification alone.

NOTE 1 The wall thickness of the adhesive will typically lie between 0,5 mm and 1,5 mm after recovery.

NOTE 2 In those cases where the inner wall distorts or flows during recovery, it might not be possible to determine

the recovered inside diameter accurately. In these cases, the sleeving can be recovered over a mandrel or plug

gauge of the specified diameter after recovery for the size being measured.

1) La Commission Electrotechnique Internationale (IEC) est une organisation mondiale de normalisation composée

de l'ensemble des comités électrotechniques nationaux (Comités nationaux de l’IEC). L’IEC a pour objet de

favoriser la coopération internationale pour toutes les questions de normalisation dans les domaines de

l'électricité et de l'électronique. A cet effet, l’IEC – entre autres activités – publie des Normes internationales,

des Spécifications techniques, des Rapports techniques, des Spécifications accessibles au public (PAS) et des

Guides (ci-après dénommés "Publication(s) de l’IEC"). Leur élaboration est confiée à des comités d'études, aux

travaux desquels tout Comité national intéressé par le sujet traité peut participer. Les organisations

internationales, gouvernementales et non gouvernementales, en liaison avec l’IEC, participent également aux

travaux. L’IEC collabore étroitement avec l'Organisation Internationale de Normalisation (ISO), selon des

conditions fixées par accord entre les deux organisations.
