Fiber Fusion Splice Protection Sleeves

Sets the Standard Lasting Fiber Splice Protection

Low Price Guarantee


What's special about these wire splice sleeves?

  • Heat shrinkable ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) meltable adhesive tube creates a waterproof and dustproof seal to reduce erosion or weakening of a fiber splice
  • Strength member is made of stainless steel to make the fiber joint stronger and provide extra protection after the fiber optic fusion
  • Open ended assembly minimizes the possibility of air being trapped inside the tube during shrinkage
