New to DTL: Heat Shrink Boots:

Shrink boots provide mechanical and environmental protection to connector to cable transitions. Specially formulated polymers are injection-molded, then heated and expanded. The shape-memory property of the material allows it to return to its original shape when heated with a hot air gun. Optional adhesive coatings on the inside of the boot provide a watertight, high-strength bond to the cable jacket and the connector or adapter.

In June 2005 Smartsell Ltd purchased the name and assets of Distributed Technology Ltd, a niche distributor of electronic and electromechanical components for the past 25 years.

The team, with a wealth of experience in the distribution and wholesale business, supports the industrial, commercial, aerospace, military and motorsport markets. We take pride in offering a fast turn-around on stock items as well as a procuring service for customers through our global network of suppliers.

We have extensive technical knowledge, often assisting design engineers to source suitable products, and our sales engineers are able to cross refer items giving our customers a choice of alternative manufacturers within stated specifications.
