Commonly referred to as shrink tubing, or heat shrink tubing, we offer all varieties of polyolefin, fluoropolymer (PVC, FEP, PTFE, Kynar® PVDF), chlorinated polyolefin (Neoprene) and highly flexible elastomer (Viton®) heat-shrinkable tubing. Our natural and colored heat shrink tubing conforms to all major commercial and military specifications, including MIL-I-23053, Underwriters' Laboratory (UL) VW-1 flame test, and CSA.
Typical applications for the heat shrink tube include: electrical insulation, termination, splicing, cable bundling, color coding, strain relief, wire marking, identification, mechanical protection, corrosion protection, abrasion protection and moisture and weather sealing. Heat shrink tubing can be used for many different applications, and in various environments from -270°C to 260°C, in a wide variety of chemicals. Our colored heat shrink tubing is available in thin, medium or heavy wall configurations, with melt-and-flow adhesives, weatherproofing encapsulates. Available by the foot or in large economical bulk spools, we can accommodate your needs.
The most common heat shrink tubing is sold in a 2:1 or 3:1 expanded form; with many other shrink ratios and adhesive linings readily available to suit your unique needs in military and commercial electronics, telecommunications, aerospace, automotive, rail/transit and many other industries.
