Glenair manufacturers the boots in two styles: lipped or lipless. The lipped version is designed for use with connector adapters that attach to mil-spec circular connectors and have a boot groove to accept an interlocking lip on the boot for increased strength. These adapters can be unthreaded from the connector for repair and accept both shielded and unshielded cable. Lipless boots are designed for direct attachment to connector threads, eliminating the adapter, thus saving space and weight. Adhesive lining provides sealing and improved mechanical strength.
The Series 77 range is available in various flexibilities to suit different applications. Materials range from high performance elastomer, zero-halogen material to general purpose polyolefin depending upon the environmental requirements and resistance required against lubricating oil, hydraulic fluid, aviation fuel, de-icing fluid and diesel oil.
