Through its unique extrusion process, Ben-Har® 1151-HW has unique properties unequaled by ordinary dip coated sleevings. The silicone rubber coating is a tough and integral part of the sleeving, giving Ben-Har® 1151-HW unsurpassed heat/flex life and protection against production assembly hazards. The coating’s formulation design allows the inside diameter of the sleeving to expand over wire sizes larger than its original diameter without coating fracture or end fray, providing the “snug fit” so essential to preventing vibration damage.
- Excellent heat/flex life and protection against production assembly hazards
- Heavier wall thickness than that of traditional silicone sleevings found in the industry, providing excellent resistance to dielectric breakdown caused by operational stresses
Ben-Har® 1151-HW is used extensively for terminal insulation and protection, as well as in dry-type transformer applications.
The suggested application is provided by Atkins & Pearce merely as an additional tool to assist the customer in making an appropriate electrical sleeving and tubing selection. This is only provided to serve as suggestions of electrical sleeving and tubing that may be appropriate based on certain criteria and should not be relied upon as determinative or as a substitute for customer testing.
Many variables exist in an electrical sleeving or tubing’s flexibilities, resistances, and treatment. Final electrical product selection should always be confirmed through the customer’s own testing process to determine if a particular product is the correct choice for a particular system. Atkins & Pearce is not responsible for selections made by the customer using any of the reference material provided. For optimal performance in specific systems, we strongly recommend that customers conduct exhaustive electrical tests in their own lab and consider retaining samples for their future internal reference. The importance of electrical product testing and data validation cannot be overstated.
As the customer, you and your company are responsible for appropriately testing all Atkins & Pearce electrical sleeving and/or tubing used in your application and for making the final selection based upon meeting appropriate safety and electrical standards. Atkins & Pearce makes no representation or warranty, expressed or implied, at law or in equity, in respect of the information provided, including, without limitation, with respect to merchantability or fitness for any particular purpose, which representations or warranties are hereby expressly disclaimed.
