Heatshrink protection sleeves provides the splice with long term strength and protection from the elements. Application of a heat shrink splice protector immediately after fusion splicing will protect the spliced optical fibre during installation, handling and storage for many years of the fibre’s lifetime. The tubes are clear to allow viewing the color of the fiber after splicing. The entire assembly is heat bonded to ensure that all members maintain perfect alignment during shipping, handling, and the shrinking process for the best in optical fiber protection.
