Built-in thermal-memory

- Feb 12, 2019-

The thermoplastic material is often cross-linked through the use of electron beams,peroxides, or moisture. This cross-linking creates the memory in the tubing so that it is able to shrink back to its original extruded dimensions upon heating producing a term used called heat-shrink with a built-in thermal-memory.

For external use, heat-shrink tubing often has a UV stabilizer added.
