What is Heat Shrink Tubing?
Heat shrink tubing is thus a special type of plastic tube whose diameter shrinks when heated. Shrink tubing is used to insulate wires and protect them from abrasion. The application of heat is done with a heat gun. There is shrink tubing with or without glue, where the glue in addition to attaching to the cable sheath and conductor also seals extra. The shrink tubing is divided into shrinkage conditions, ie how much the diameter of the hose can shrink to a maximum when heat is applied. The most common ratios are between 2:1 to 6:1. The greater the shrinkage ratio of a shrink tubing, the larger the non-shaped application it can be shaped around. The wall thickness and diameter change when you shrink a shrink tubing.
