DSG-Canusa’s specialized heat shrink products for automotive wire harnesses focus on splice sealing and water blocking/feed through sealing.

Splice sealing is a high volume and high performance application and DSG-Canusa has met the industry’s needs with DERAY® SpliceMelt and CFRA. These products are manufactured in Europe and North America with a 4:1 shrink ratio and a specialty adhesive to meet industry requirements.

DERAY® ColdMelt is a best in class system for water blocking harness feed through locations such as the fire wall. It is a three part system made up of heat shrink tubing, ColdMelt strips and DERAY® SealMan application equipment. The system is flexible and craft friendly allowing DSG-Canusa to rapidly deploy in new or existing programs.

The following chart lists DSG-Canusa’s key products for automotive but we also refer you to the Single Wall, Dual Wall, Non-Polyolefin and Medium Heavy Wall sections for more options.
