Teflon shrink tubing
Teflon hea shrink tubing is highly flame retardant and exhibits outstanding chemical and solvent resistance with electrical characteristics which remain stable over a wide temperature range. The operating temperature ranges from -80°C to +260°C
This highly popular material-Teflon has become the gold standard for fluoropolymer tubing because of its superior lubricity, temperature endurance, and chemical resistance. As tubing or heat shrink, this polymer is highly embedded in applications ranging from medical devices, industrial, chemical, and analytical areas. PTFE heat shrink provides secure encapsulation to protect your vital components.
How do I choose a heat shrinkable tubing size?
1. Choosing the right heat shrinkable tubing size is all about taking the right measurements. Use a caliper to measure the diameters of the smallest and largest parts you will be covering with the tubing.
2. Choose heat shrinkable tubing that is twenty to thirty percent larger than your largest measurement. The extra twenty to thirty percent will allow room to slide the expanded tubing over the largest part.
3. Don’t forget your small measurement, checking to make sure that the heat shrinkable tubing has a high enough shrink ratio to get a snug fit on the smallest part you wish to cover, usually, it require that the tube after full shrink ID should be smaller than the cable min. OD, only in this way, the tube can seal the wire and cable tightly.
