FAQ heat shrink tubing:

  • What is heat shrink tubing?
    Heat shrink tubing is a flexible material that shrinks when heated. It is typically made of a polymer, such as polyolefin, that undergoes controlled shrinkage when exposed to heat. This allows it to wrap around and protect wires, cables, or other components
  • Which materials are used in the production of heat shrink tubing and what are their properties?
    Various materials are used in the production of heat shrink tubing, such as polyolefin (e.g., polyethylene or polypropylene), fluoropolymers, elastomers, and PVC. These materials have different properties, such as insulation, flexibility, chemical resistance, and heat resistance.
  • How is heat shrink tubing applied, and what methods are used to activate the shrinking process?
    Heat shrink tubing is typically applied by sliding it over the wire or cable to be protected and then heating it. This can be done using a heat gun, an oven, or a specialized heat shrink machine. The heat activates the shrinking mechanism of the tubing, causing it to tightly shrink around the wire or cable.
  • What factors should be considered when selecting the right heat shrink tubing for a specific application?
    When selecting the appropriate heat shrink tubing, factors such as the application, environmental conditions (temperature, humidity, chemical exposure), wire or cable size, and desired properties (insulation, protection, flame retardancy) should be taken into consideration. It is also important to consider relevant standards and regulations that may apply.
  • Are there special variants of heat shrink tubing available, such as flame retardant, waterproof, or high-voltage heat shrink tubing?
    Yes, there are special variants of heat shrink tubing available for specific applications. Flame retardant heat shrink tubing is designed to resist the spread of flames. Waterproof heat shrink tubing provides protection against moisture and water ingress. High-voltage heat shrink tubing is suitable for high-voltage applications.

Our brands in heat shrink tubing

When Idétrading Electronics was founded, we started with our very first brand and product group: Raychem – the inventor of heat shrink tubing. Raychem, now part of TE Connectivity, manufactures products that are mainly based on plastics with special properties: shrink moldings, shrink connectors, special wire and cable and more. Today, in addition to our main brand TE Connectivity / Raychem, we also carry products from brands such as Panduit and our own brand.
