Likely to be found just about anywhere there are cables and wires, heat shrink is extremely useful, both for protection and cosmetic enhancement. It can be used to:
• Seal water and dust out of cable splices
• Insulate cables and wires against extreme heat in aircraft, boats, and military vehicles
• Provide a barrier between cables and corrosive chemicals
• Color code cables for easy identification
• Harness multiple wires together
• Make long-lasting labels for network patch cords
