SPECIFICATION RW-2511
TE 108-121014
TMS-SCE, TMS-CT and TTMS (MP)
HEAT SHRINK MARKER SLEEVES
SCOPE
This specification establishes the quality standard for heat shrinkable identification
markers, for use in multipurpose and military applications. The special requirements for
military applications are detailed in Table 4.
The operating temperature for this product is -55°C to +135°C (-67 to +275°F).
This system is a computerised method of identifying items by printing a mark on TMS-SCE,
TMS-CT and TTMS product ranges. The mark is permanent upon printing. This system is not
recommended where strain relief properties are required.
TMS-SCE and TTMS are available in both 2:1 (e.g. TMS-SCE-2X) and 3:1 (e.g. TMS-SCE)
shrink ratio (see Tables 1 and 2 for more details). TMS-CT is only available as a 3:1 product.
The marker system comprises specific printers and ribbons (refer to Identification Printer Product
Ribbon Matrix Document 411-121005). Products printed with black or silver ribbons as specified
in 411-121005 fully comply with this specification. Products printed with white ribbon may not
fully meet the specified print performance when exposed to some aggressive fluids, details on
page 22. Compliance to this specification can only be guaranteed if TE Connectivity approved
printers and ribbons are used.
Laser markable using industrial standard YAG lasers.
The tube size for qualification testing is 1/4inch (6.4mm) as supplied internal diameter with both
2:1 and 3:1 shrink ratio unless otherwise specified.
While TE has made every reasonable effort to ensure the accuracy of the information in this standard, TE does not guarantee that it is error-free, nor does TE make any other
representation, warranty or guarantee that the information is accurate, correct, reliable or current. TE reserves the right to make any adjustments to the information contained
herein at any time without notice. TE expressly disclaims all implied warranties regarding the information contained herein, including, but not limited to, any implied warranties
of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. The dimensions in this standard are for reference purposes only and are subject to change without notice. Specifications
are subject to change without notice. Consult TE for the latest dimensions and design specifications.

4.2 Preparation of Samples
When required by the test procedure, product shall be printed using printers and ribbons
specified by TE Connectivity. The full list can be found in TE document 411-121005 ‘TE
Identification Printer Product Ribbon Matrix’.
Print random characters onto the sleeving to fill the printable area using font type Arial 10,
bold. Markers are to be removed from the carrier (ladder format products) or cut/perforated
and separated using TE approved printer systems (continuous formats) before testing. Test
in both ‘as received’ and ‘fully recovered’ form.
The marking shall be examined for legibility in accordance with TE Document 411-121002
Print Contrast Reference Scale. The initial print contrast must be 8 or above.
As required, sleeves or tubing should be recovered by placing them in a forced air oven for 3
minutes at 200±5°C (397°F). Specimens will be removed from the oven and allowed to
cool to 23±3°C (73.4±4°F) for at least 4 hours before continuing. Where required by the test
method, testing shall be done on continuous tubing. No pre-conditioning period is required
prior to testing except where specified.
Unless otherwise specified, all tests shall be made at a temperature of 23±2°C (73.4±4°F).
4.3 Workmanship
Visually examine three samples for workmanship using normal vision and without
magnification. Check for flaws, defects, pinholes, bubbles, seams, cracks or inclusions. The
visual examination should be made with the specimen placed inside a laboratory light box
with D65 illumination.
Measure the colour of as received sleeves before any printing using a spectrophotometer.
Measure and record values for l*a*b* using the 8mm aperture and D65 illuminance. Color
results are recorded for information only.
4.4 Print Performance
4.4.1 Mark Adherence
Three as supplied and three fully recovered sleeves shall be prepared as detailed in Clause
4.1 and tested in accordance with TE document 109-121012. Samples shall be tested using
a Crockmeter fitted with an eraser and 1kg (2.2lb) load using the number of rubs specified in
the requirements table.
After the Mark Adherence test, the marking shall be examined for legibility using normal
reading vision. Print contrast shall be evaluated in accordance with TE document 411-
121002.

4.4.2 Solvent Resistance
Nine as supplied and nine fully recovered sleeves shall be prepared as detailed in Clause
4.1 and tested in accordance with TE document 109-121014. Three sleeves as supplied and
three fully recovered sleeves are tested per fluid.
After the test the marking shall be examined for legibility using normal reading vision. Print
contrast shall be evaluated in accordance with 411-121002.
4.4.3 Fluid Resistance
The test method shall be as specified in TE document 109-121039. Prepare three as
received and three fully recovered markers as detailed in Clause 4.1. Markers shall be
completely immersed in each of the fluids for the times and at the temperatures specified in
the requirements table. The volume of the fluid shall not be less than 20 times that of the
specimen. After immersion, the markers are lightly blotted with tissue paper to remove
excess surface fluid and air dried at 23±2°C (74±4°F) for 45±15min. Samples are tested
with a Crockmeter fitted with ‘Super Twill’ cloth and a 1kg (2.2lb) load.
Additional IPA testing is required using three as received and three fully recovered markers
as detailed in Clause 4.1. Load the Super Twill’ cloth with IPA and test for mark
permanence as detailed in TE document 109-121012.
After the print permanence test, marking shall be examined for legibility using normal
reading vision. Print contrast shall be evaluated in accordance with 411-121002.
4.5 Physical Testing
4.5.1 Dimensions and Longitudinal Change
The test method shall be as specified in TE document 109-121003. Three 50mm (2inch)
long marker sleeves shall be tested for inside diameter, and a further three 150mm (6inch)
long sleeves taken from a continuous reel shall be tested for Longitudinal Change. For
Longitudinal Change, two-gauge marks shall be positioned 100mm (4inch) apart on each
sleeve. The markers shall be recovered in a fan assisted oven using the details given in 4.1
and the distance between gauge lengths and inside diameter of each shall be measured,
after cooling to room temperature. The longitudinal change shall be expressed as a
percentage of the original gauge length. The minimum and maximum recovered wall
thickness shall be determined.
4.5.2 Tensile Strength and Ultimate Elongation
The test method shall be as specified in TE document 109-121002. Test five recovered
tubular specimens 125mm (5inch) long. An initial jaw separation of 50mm (2inch) with a
gauge length of 20mm (.787 inch) and rate of jaw separation of 508mm/minute (19.7”/min)
shall be used.
4.5.3 Specific Gravity
Samples of un-printed product shall be tested to the procedure in TE document 109-121015.
Three specimens of fully recovered tubing 25mm (1 inch) long should be tested. Test
specimens should be prepared in a way to prevent trapping air.

4.5.4 Split testing
The test method shall be as specified in TE document 109-121031. Ten perforated or scored
marker sleeves should be tested. Samples should be recovered, onto an ambient
temperature mandrel for five minutes in the fan assisted oven at 200±5°C (392±7°F).
