Insulation Sleeving, Electrical, Heat Shrinkable, General Specification For
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 requirements through in process inspection and statistical process control (see 184.108.40.206). Continuous operating temperature ratings range from-80° to +250°C (-112° to +482°F) (see 6.1).
Rationale: AMS-DTL-23053 sleeves are qualified per self-certification by manufacturing sources. AS23053 was created to meet requests of users and government to implement the qualification by the QPL process. In order to effectively implement the qualification by QPL, AMS-DTL-23053 must be canceled to prevent qualification by self-certification. Parts are identified with M23053/xx-xxx designation. Having both qualification method available for the same part will create confusion and not meet the user/government requests.
Cancelation of this specification was delayed until the publication of QPL. The QPL to AS23053 has been published.
AS23053 totally replaces the requirements of AMS-DTL-23053.
