Heat-shrinkable tubing is universally applied for the insulation of connections or for the end-handling of electric wire, for the insulation of soldered points on resistors and capacitors, for the identification and encapsulation of electric wire, for the corrosion-proofing of metallic rods or tubes and for the protection of antennas. Heat-shrinkable tubes are used for the corrosion-proof and waterproof connection of fibre optic cable.
This is thin-walled, flexible, irradiated polyolefin tubing with a smooth exterior. It offers excellent tensile strength and low water absorption. The max. shrinking ratio is 50% and the material is flame-retardant.
