The AS81824 specification covers environment resistant, permanent crimp type, splices having heat shrinkable insulating sleeve and meltable environmental seals or heatless sealing sleeves. The splices may be used with tin, nickel, and silver plated conductors in applications where the total temperature of the splice application does not exceed 200 °C or as specified in the detail specification.
Rationale: Full revision required to incorporate qualifying activity requirements, update references, address government related terminology, and technical issues as needed. The heat aging temperature update is required to accommodate splices with different continuous operating temperature. The Qualifying Activity address update. Editorial corrections.
