Mil-Qualified • Tacom Approved • Commercial

Series 77Series 770

Glenair Series 77 Full Nelson Environmental Heat-Shrink Boots and Molded Shapes provide robust protection of the wire-to-connector interface in interconnect cable harness applications. Connector / cable boots are supplied with an adhesive inner coating that activates with a watertight seal with the application of heat. Qualified to numerous military and industrial specifications, our heat- and cold-shrinkable boots, sleeves and molded shapes are temperature, solvent, and abrasion resistant.

In addition to military standard materials, the series is now available in 5 additional materials, including Zero Halogen Polyolefin for regulated environmental safety applications and Low Outgassing Fluoropolymer Alloy that meets NASA requirements. Series 77 boots are also TACOM qualified to SC-X15111D specifications and our Type 1 high-performance material can be ordered in 10 optional colors to match cable colors or provide color coding. Properly applied, these adhesive-lined shrink boots provide a dependable, leak-proof seal for interconnect cable assemblies. If you are looking for an even quicker solution try our Piggyback boots which are supplied pre-shrunk onto the adapter, leaving you to only shrink the portion around the cable and reducing your production time. So if you're worried about sealing effectiveness, if you want long-lasting environmental protection, if you want an ingress prevention solution that won't lose its grip after years and years of service, get a Series 77 Full Nelson.

Low Outgassing Space-Grade Shrink Boots

Series 77 / Type 8 Boot Material

Special fluoropolymer formula IAW ASTM E 595 provides mechanical strain relief, wire routing and environmental protection for electrical interconnect systems in space and high-altitude applications

Glenair's new type 8 low outgassing shrink boot material is ideally suited for the broad range of space vehicle, satellite, and station applications that require outgassing performance IAW ASTM E 595. The specially formulated polymer is injection molded in newly-manufactured mold tools that deliver precise dimensionality and professional appearance. Use Glenair two-part epoxy (part number 779-001) to achieve a watertight, high-strength bond to the cable jacket and the connector or adapter. A complete range of shrink boot types and styles may be supplied for connectors ranging from standard mil spec designs to Glenair small form factor solutions such as the Series 80 Mighty Mouse, Series 88 SuperFly, and others.
