Galvanized steel wire is a type of steel wire that has been coated with a layer of zinc to protect it from corrosion. It is commonly used in the manufacture of cables and other electrical products, including heat shrinkable cable end caps.
Galvanized steel wire is often used as armoring for cables, which helps to provide additional mechanical protection and improve the cable’s resistance to damage from external forces. The steel wire is typically wrapped around the cable core and held in place with a layer of tape or other material.
Heat shrinkable cable end caps are used to provide a watertight seal at the end of a cable. They are made from a heat-shrinkable material, typically a polymer, which is designed to shrink when heated, forming a tight seal around the cable end. The end caps are often used in outdoor or underground cable applications to prevent water ingress, which can cause damage to the cable.
Galvanized steel wire can be used in conjunction with heat shrinkable cable end caps to provide additional mechanical protection and support for the cable end. The steel wire is typically wrapped around the cable end and held in place with a layer of tape or other material before the heat shrinkable end cap is applied. This helps to ensure that the end cap is securely held in place and provides a watertight seal.
