Heat shrink tubing PVC, Polyolefin, LSZH, Kynar, Elastomer

Heat shrink is like standard tubing, until you heat it is how I first saw this heatshrink n 1987, it just looked like standard tubing until you started heating it's properties and that's when the magic appears. Heatshrink can be incredible flexible, tough, semi rigid or high temperature material that can be used in all market industries with low to higher temperatures starting   PVC   |   Polyolefin   |   LSZH   |   Elastomeric   |   Kynar   |   Viton   |   PTFE   &   Silicone Rubber.

Heat shrink tubing, which type 2:1, 3:1 or 4:1

Heat shrink tubing

Which type 2:1, 3:1 or 4:1 heat shrink tubing to use, these polymers comes in an varied temperature and forms of flexibility polymers in   PVC   |   PVC Layflat   |   Polyolefin LSZH   |   Polylefin Adhesive lined   |   Elastomeric   | Kynar   |   Viton   |   Viton plus   |   Silicone Rubber   &   PTFE.

Heat shrink tubing, how to use them

Heat shrink tubing, polyolefin

Heat shrink tubing, how to use - when inserted over your object and ready to heat shrink it down, the best guide is to always heat from the middle working outwards so the heatshrink holds the middle area to avoid slipping and gradually proceed to one end and then from the middle again to the opposite end, which avoids air being trapped under the tubing or sleeving.

Heat shrink Polyolefin, Adhesive, LSZH

1) Polyolefin heatshrinks are flexible, thin wall, flame retardant operates at -55 to +135C. 2:1 Polyolefin, 1.2 to 152mm (3:1, 1.5/0.5mm to 40/13mm). 2) Heat shrink 3:1 & 4:1 Adhesive (Glue) lined, a polyolefin tube, dual wall, semi flexible, supplied in thin wall. 3) Heatshrink low smoke 2:1 LSZH - polyolefin flame retardant sleeving so has no added halogens for LSOH thin wall & LSZH medium wall, ID 1.2 to 102mm

Heatshrinks in PVC, Elastomer, Kynar, Viton, PTFE below.

Heatshrink sleeving PVC 2:1

2:1 PVC sleeving, general purpose, thin wall, UL is ideal for electrical busbar distribution centres, handles,
ropes, chain applications - 3.2 to 101.6mm

Heat shrink sleeving elastomer 2:1

2:1 elastomer cross-linked, flexible, designed for areas that needs protection against
abuse at high temperatures, 3.2mm to 76.2mm

Heat shrink kynar (PVdF) 2-1

2:1 kynar, a super thin wall, super tough, chemical
resistant, semi rigid polymer.1.2 to 25.4mmm

Heat shrink viton & viton plus

Viton heatshrink 2:1, a co-polymer of vinylidene & hexafluoro propylene, viton a premium grade, withstands chemical attack, oil and diesel resistant. sizes from 3.2 to 50.8mm. Heat shrink viton plus, exactly as previous viton but with added temperature of 10% more than standard viton. Sizes from 3.2 to 50.8mm

Heat shrink tubing in PTFE

2:1 & 4:1 PTFEs are used in highly critical & extreme
environments due to it being the highest temperature
in all polymers, 2:1 and 4:1 PTFE.
