What's the Classification and Selection of Heat Shrink Tubing?

Heat shrink tubing has a wide range of applications in industries such as industrial, electronics, automotive, transportation, telecommunications and electrical, sports equipment, medical, retail, etc. How to choose and classify them?
You can refer to the following indicators:

  1. Temperature and heat resistance requirement: Consider the heating method during construction and the long-term operating environment temperature. If a heat source is not used, cold shrink tubing can also be selected.

  2. Select the appropriate shrinkage ratio (1.2x to 6x), size (0.8mm to 180mm), and thickness based on the outer diameter of the item being covered.

  3. Determine if there is a requirement for pressure resistance, anti-mechanical performance, abrasion resistance, chemical agent resistance, flame retardant, insulation, and waterproofing.

  4. Requirements for appearance such as color and hardness.

  5. Paired with our categorized series of heat shrink and cold shrink tubing: models of thin-wall, adhesive-lined, high-temperature resistant, medical, braided sleeving, mid-joint tubing for wire connections, high-voltage insulation tubing, heat shrink molded shapes, fiber optic tubing, tapes, and identification series. By focusing on these key points, you can select the most suitable product based on the points above.
