3M BBI-A tubing is made of specially formulated, cross-linked, flame-retardant, track-resistant polyolefin that will shrink to fit rectangular, square or round bus bars.
The BBI-A material has a high resistance to splitting, while providing the flexibility to conform to bends in certain applications. Superior split resistance can prevent insulation failures and resulting downtimes. BBI-A is unaffected by normal fluids and is resistant to physical damage. Excellent dielectric strength allows the required space between bus bars and metal enclosures to be substantially reduced. Closer spacing reduces both the overall size of the assembly, and the overall cost.
