1. Select the proper size CRLS sleeve con-sidering the diameter and necessarylength of coverage. Allow a minimum of 3length overlap on each end of the area tobe covered.

2. Remove the plastic release liner andpaper mask from the inside of the sleeveexposing the translucent adhesive andadhesive flap. Use caution, so as to onlyremove the liner and not the excess flap ofadhesive. This flap is approximately 2 inwidth, located at the end near the butylhold down strip (see Figure 1).

Figure 1

3. Wrap the CRLS sleeve loosely around thecable, forming a tube, so that the adhesiveis on the inside. Tuck the end of the sleevein behind the excess flap of adhesive sothat the adhesive forms the tube aroundthe cable (see Figure 2).

Figure 2

4. Remove the paper protection covering thebutyl hold down strip (see Figure 3). Pressthe butyl hold down strip onto the sleeve inthe desired location and using the palm ofyour hand or a rubber roller, apply firmpressure to hold in place (see Figure 4).

Figure 3

Figure 4

5. Using a broad colorless or yellow flame(DO NOT USE A CONCENTRATED BLUEFLAME), begin heating below the areamarked HEAT HERE FIRST which runsalong the length of the sleeve (see Figure5). Heat the indicated area with a brushingmotion until a slight wrinkle occurs. Oncethe sleeve begins to recover, move theflame over the flap, along the entire lengthof the sleeve. Do this in the same manneras described earlier being careful not toapply too much heat between the factoryweld and the area above the butyl strip.

Figure 5

6. Continue shrinking the sleeve from thecenter towards one end, applying heatalong the flap area and in a circular motionaround the sleeve (see Figure 6). Whileshrinking, check the flap to ensure goodcontact. If the flap joint is not flush orbegins to curl during the shrinking process,re-apply pressure to the flap joint. Whenthe sleeve has adequately recovered,sealant will flow from the end and sealcircumferentially.

Figure 6

7. Repeat the same procedure, shrinkingfrom the center towards the other end untilthe sleeve has completely recovered.

8. Finally, apply the same additional heatover the flap closure area marked HEATHERE FIRST using end-to-end strokesand if required, possibly a small amount ofpressure to ensure a proper weld (seeFigure 7.)

9. Installation is now complete.

GENERAL1. Always comply with the following installa-

tion procedure. Failure to do so can resultin fire, explosion, and serious or fatal injury.

2. Consult the product data sheet for theappropriate wraparound sleeve type, sizeand recommended length for the specificapplication.

OPERATION OF TORCH1. Always us a clean burning Propane or

MAPP torch. Canusas CTCH or equivalentis recommended.

2. Always provide good ventilation for con-fined workspaces.

3. Consult your company hot work safety proce-dures before using an open flame.

4. Always use the outside 3 to 4 inch tip ofthe flame for contact with the heat shrinkproduct.

5. Always keep the flame moving with a smoothbrushing motion around the circumferenceand along the length of the sleeve.

6. Always start shrinking at the middle of thesleeve and work towards each end.

7. If the sleeve is not uniformly recovered, asevidenced by non-uniform wall thickness ordimpling, reheating the area will ensure fullrecovery.

8. Do not handle the sleeving after recovery,until sufficiently cooled.
