FEP heat shrink tubing is a common alternative to PTFE, with similar electrical and friction properties and chemical resistance. FEP heat shrinkable tubing conforms to Mil-I-23053/11, and UL 94 (V0, VW-1), and is suitable for continuous use at temperatures up to 204°C.
FEP heat shrink tubing is used in cases where temperatures are not as extreme, and very high shrink ratios are not necessary. It is also widely used when components cannot handle the extreme shrink temperature of PTFE. It is available in 1.6:1 and 1.3:1 varieties, shrinks at around 190-210°C, and has found widespread use and appeal.
