Use the yellow tip for shrinking. Regulator Pressure FH2616Ai Full pressure FH-2629, 15 psig Cleaning the Gabie Use an approved solvent, such as the ‘one suppiiod in the P63 Gablo Prep Kit, toclean the cable. Be sure to follow th ‘manufacturer's instructions. Failure to follow these instructions could lead to product failure. ‘Some newer solvents do not evaporate Quickly and need to be removed with a clean, lint-free cloth. Failure to do s0. ‘could change the volume resistivity of the substrate or leave a residue on the surface. Please follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully General Shrinking Instructions + Apply outer 3-to 4inch tp of the {lam to hoat-shrinkable material with a rapid brushing motion, += Keep flame moving to avoid scorching * Unless otherwise instructed, start shrinking tube at center, working flame ‘around al sides of the ube to apply ‘unform heat Installation Instructions To determine if a tube has completely recovered, look for the following, ‘especially on the back and underside of the tube: 1. Uniform wall thickness, 2 Conformance to substrate, 3. No fiat spots or chill marks. 4. Visible sealant flow if the tube is coated. ‘Note: When installing multiple tubes, ‘make sure thatthe surface of the last {ube is still warm bofore positioning and shrinking the next tube. if Installed tube has cooled, re-heat the entire surface. 1. Product selection. ‘Check kit selection with cable diameter dimensions in Table 1. Note: Table is for 100% insulated ‘cable. For 133% insulated cable, ‘check actual cable dimensions.
