Heat Shrink Features and Benefits
Heat Shrink tubing is frequently used to insulate wires, providing abrasion resistance and environmental protection for stranded and solid wire conductors, connections, joints, and terminals. It also can be used to repair the insulation on wires or bundle them together in order to protect them or small parts from abrasion and environmental factors. In some areas heat shrink tubing is also used in mechanical applications.
If required, heat-shrink tubing supplied by National Plastics and Seals can meet major commercial and military specifications.
Heat-shrink tubing can be supplied with an inside diameter ranging from 3/64ths of an inch to 6 inches. Length options range from 4-foot pieces all the way up to 1,000-foot spools.
Due to its unique benefits, heat shrink tubing has the ability to maintain high flexibility even at low temperatures, meet stringent international specifications, and operate at a wide range of temperatures. It’s also resistant to many chemicals, including diesel and petrol. Heat-shrink tubing is resistant to ultraviolet radiation, and its wide range of hue options allows for the color-coding of wires. Some varieties are highly flexible, and it’s typically puncture-resistant.
National Plastics and Seals can fulfill a wide range of order types, from single prototypes and low-volume orders to high-volume and blanket orders. Lead times depend on the request but can be quoted on a job-by-job basis, and emergency and rush services are available.
