Santa Fe Springs, CA (April 22, 2004). Phillips Industries’ has expanded their selection of STA-DRY® heat shrink connector (HSC) kits. Metal drawers and plastic HSC kits are available in various sizes and product combinations to fit the different requirements of industry maintenance shops.
STA-DRY® heat shrink connectors were developed by the company to reduce the out of service hours from the most frequent cause of fleet downtime, lighting and electrical problems. The adhesive-lined heat shrink tubing offers a permanent watertight connection, which maintains the integrity of the electrical system and minimizes the introduction of contaminants that can corrode the wire. The tubing also provides additional tensile strength to hold the wire in place. When fleets use inadequate electrical connectors, the problems recur causing additional downtime. Repairs are done right the first time with STA-DRY® heat shrink connectors.
Phillips Industries on-line catalog www.phillipsind.com details the STA-DRY® HSC product line and has recently been updated with installation instructions accessible on the home page.
