This specification establishes the requirements for various types and colors of electrical insulating sleeving that will shrink to a predetermined size upon the application of heat. This specification includes provisions for demonstrating compliance with qualification requirements (see Section 4 and 7.3), in process inspection, and statistical process control inspections (see 4.4). The continuous operating temperature ranges for the sleeving classes covered by this specification are from -112 to +482 °F (-80 to +250 °C). The continuous operating temperature range for each sleeving class is given in the applicable detail specification.
This is a conversion of AMS-DTL-23053 into an AS document which includes Qualification. This also includes revisions due to comments received by the government and industry, updated references, alignment of the specification with SAE guidelines and review of the specification for known technical problems.
