Which mil specs apply to heat shrink tubing?

The M23053 military specification covers heat shrink tubing. Different slant sheets and classes that fall under this mil spec account for different materials, wall thicknesses, and other mechanical and electrical qualities that are considered acceptable for each product. M23053 heat shrink tubing can be used for a wide range of applications and is designed to withstand harsh conditions. 

 

 Heat shrink tubing, spiral wrap and sleeving products provide an easy, economical way to insulate, organize, protect and identify your wire and cablecomponents. When heated, heat shrink tubing forms a tight mechanical bond over wire and cable, even shielding irregularly shaped materials. If you are searching for an alternative to customary methods of insulation, heat shrink tubing, sleeving or spiral wrap are good options to consider. Heat shrink tubing presents an unmatchable solution for the protection of electric wires and cables from abrasion, corrosion and harmful elements, such as water and oil.

 

 When looking to purchase any of our shrink tubing products, performance specifications to keep in mind include shrink ratio, maximum diameter and temperature range. A shrinkage ratio, a unique characteristic to heat shrink tubing products, refers to the ratio between the tubing’s expanded diameter and recovered diameter. It is common for heat shrink tubing’s part number to identify the shrink ratio. Such as: A-3X, A-4X, G-3X, etc.
