Functionality and properties of a heat shrinkable sleeve for cables

Heat shrink tubing

For the production of heat shrinkable tubing are used different plastics are used, whereby - in addition to the dimensionally stable but very elastic elastomers - thermoplastics such as polyolefins are usually used. Based on weak carbon compounds, this material is characterized by the Deformability at certain temperatures and thus ensures the characteristic function of heat-shrinkable tubing. This is because the hoses, which are expanded during the manufacturing process, contract to their original shape when exposed to heat, thus forming a precisely fitting Protective cover for the enclosed cables.

Heat shrinkable tubing is available in a wide variety of designs, which can differ, for example, in terms of wall thickness, diameter or the shrinkage ratio to be expected. According to the specific properties of a heat shrinkable tubing, it is conceivable that it can be used in a wide variety of industries for many different purposes.

Applications of heat shrinkable tubing

Basically, heat shrinkable tubing is used when cable material or other components are to be repaired, mounted or marked with, for example, a color. In this process, the service life of the objects surrounded by a heat-shrinkable sleeve can be significantly extended, which is mainly due to the fact that the plastic material used for manufacturing Protection from various influences can offer:

To benefit from these functions, heat shrinkable tubing is mainly used in different industriessuch as the automotive industries, but also in the military field or used in private households.
