Hot Knives

For cutting and sealing sleeving with professional results
 
For the best results during sleeving installation, the sleeving should be cut with a hot knife. The heated blade slices through most grades of sleeving and seals the ends to prevent fraying during installation.
We offer an assortment of tools to accomplish this, ranging from heavy duty, high volume devices to portable gas powered units.
 

step1
Measure the sleeving to length. Keep the sleeving relaxed and don’t pull it as you measure. The most accurate method is to measure the sleeving on the actual application. There will be some foreshortening of the sleeving as it expands over large bundles or connectors. Mark the cut line with a pen or marker..

step2
When the knife is hot, slide the sleeving over the cutting blade. Practice on a piece of scrap to get a feel for the procedure. Always cut in a well ventilated area and avoid inhaling the fumes. Both the blade and the cut ends will be HOT. Be careful.

step3
While the ends are still hot, use an inverted funnel (needle nose pliers or scissors also work well) to form the end into a soft flare. This will allow the sleeving to easily slide over your application and accommodate plugs or connectors without binding.

step2
To install the sleeving over your application, just push the flared end over the ends of the wires and "walk" the sleeve down the length of the bundle. Once the sleeving is in place, just run your hand over the applied sleeving to smooth it out.
