RPS markers are ready for use immediately after printing. Once the sleeve is heat-shrunk onto the wire or cable, the printed identification becomes permanent. Marks remain legible even when exposed to abrasion, aggressive cleaning solvents, and industrial fluids. Made of durable, heat-shrinkable polyolefin, RPS sleeves can be used for a variety of wire or cable applications.
