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

Heatshrink tubing

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

The higher the operational temperature = higher the costs for that particular polymer products for heat shrink tubing.

Silicone Rubber heatshrink 1.7:1 has special with lead time conditions and set minimums as not a standard issue, so if looking for any of these polymers please get in touch for any tubing.

Heat shrink tubing the correct size

Heat shrink tubing, choosing the correct size - A substrate to be insulated e.g. is OD 6mm at temperatures of +200C, and then you need the size up ID 9.5mm. A good guide if your need is for abrasion protection but with oil and diesel protection then consider Elastomer at +150C over Viton at +200C, as Viton is a premium heatshrink, consider your options wisely.

Heat shrink tubing cutting best guide

Heat shrink tubing, cutting best guide - The best guide when cutting these polymers to the desired length is to take special care to ensure smoothly cut ends with sharp cutting equipment as poorly cut edges can cause the material to split during heat shrinking process. As an extra guide think twice measure length before you cut the heat shrink tubing

Polyolefin heat shrink tubing When heat shrinking, the best guide is to always start from the middle working outwards so the polymer grips 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 and by starting from the middle stops the polymer from slipping along the object being insulated.

Heat shrink tubing - for longitudinal shrinkage

Heat shrink will also shrink longitudinally (horizontally), you could be looking at shrinkage from +/-5% to +/-15% this has to be considered when cutting. By heat shrinking the ends first then the middle section, using this method is problematic as air gets trapped in the tubing and prevents the middle section from fully shrinking.

Heat shrink tubing for insulating metal pipes

If the object to be covered is metal hollow pipes, it is best taking care to ensure the metal is pre-heated to avoid cold spots as this will give an unsightly appearance of the heat shrink tubing

Heatshrink, difficulty finding the correct one

If you are still struggling to find a suitable heat shrink for your application, contact us as we should be able to offer something less costly to use more successfully on your finished assembly.
