Using Expendables - Continued
Determine the appropriate size of heat shrinkable sleeving necessary to do the job.
Slide the heat shrinkable sleeving over the wire before inserting the wire into the cup terminal.
Solder wire to cup terminal using soldering techniques described in chapter 4.
Slide heat shrinkable sleeving down wire until it covers all bare wire and the upper port of the cup
Apply only enough heat to shrink the sleeving to conform to the shape of the joint. Over heating of
the heat shrinkable sleeving will cause it to melt and tear.
Use a heat gun or hair dryer to apply heat to the heat shrinkable sleeving for approximately 4 seconds.
Allow heat shrinkable sleeving to cool and inspect for a snug fit against the joint. If necessary repeat
step (5) above to a snug fit.

Close all containers tightly when they are not being used. Keep container labels clean so that they can be easily read.
Store flammable materials in an approved metal cabinet and away from heat sources.
