1) In this column, only general information on the elastomer group is possible. Individual consideration necessary. The light-coloured grades generally have poorer mechanical properties than the black elastomers. See General Tables of Resistance.

FDA: Part of sleeve in contact with medium acc FDA positive list.

black: inside of sleeve made of black rubber / white: inside of sleeve made of "white" rubber

E: These sleeves are available with conductive inside (R < 1.000.000 Ohm), additonal fee!

KTW: Leitlinie zur hygienischen Beurteilung von organischen Materialien im Kontakt mit Trinkwasser (Umweltbundesamt).

The abbreviations are acc. ISO 1629:1976 (E) and ASTM D-1418-79.

Chemical resistance of elastomers

The chemical resistance of elastomers can be estimated using general resistance tables, for example from Bürkle. See also "Chemical resistance of materials - General resistance tables".

The material of the inner side of the crimp sleeve is relevant in each case.
