Soldering Sleeve .125.
Termination sleeves consist of a heat-shrinkable, transparent, polyvinylidene fluoride sleeve with an inner, pre-fluxed, solder preform and two thermoplastic sealing inserts. When heat is applied, the solder melts and flows to provide a superior connection between the ground lead and the shield. At the same time, the two thermoplastic sealing inserts melt and the outer sleeve shrinks to provide an environmentally protected termination. Otherwise, they are essentially the same.
Would not do avionics wiring without these!
Very convenient. Strip the wire ends, insert in the sleeve, and apply the heat gun.
A little expensive but they do make a very secure connection and are easy to use.
Total waste of money. They dont have enough solder in them to create a solid hold on the wires once melted and the heat- shrink ends dont shrink enough to grip the wires.

The spec sheet does not indicate a heat level. The sleeve is designed to melt using Convection / Hot Air. Based on the spec sheet the solder melt temp is 145 C.
