PTFE Heat Shrink Tubing 2:1 • Fractional

PTFE Heat Shrinkable Tubing possesses excellent characteristics for use in high temperature applications, corrosive environments and as an electrical insulator. PTFE Heat Shrink Tubing offers the ultimate performance with the highest continuous working temperature of all Fluoropolymers. Applications for PTFE Shrink Tubing in Fractional Sizes include insulating, terminating, moisture sealing, splicing, and wire bundling. Heat Shrink PTFE in colored tubing can also be a great visual for coding wires. See the Data Sheet for a summary of PTFE Heat Shrinkable Tubing & its properties.

PTFE possesses the lowest coefficient of friction of all Fluoropolymers.

PTFE is a non-wetting, self-lubricating material.

PTFE tubing can be sterilized chemically and is auto-clavable.

PTFE Heat Shrink tubing is made to Mil -I- 23053/12

Available in 3 different wall thicknesses : Standard Wall , Thin Wall & Industrial Wall

For larger diameter metal objects it is recommended that you bring the object up to room temperature or better. Failure to do so will cause material to wrinkle and create air gaps between the tubing and subsurface. Rotating the part will also help with a uniform shrink. PTFE Heat Shrink Tubing will tend to split longitudinally if tubing is not allowed to recover to about 75 % of its expanded diameter or if it is over heated during shrinking.
