Heat Shrink Tubing
Heat shrink tubing is a useful product, delivering protective qualities to nearly any kind of electrical wiring. It can also provide reinforcement and environmental protection as well as assist with repairs and bundling wires together. These benefits are possible through some unique materials that enable a range of capabilities.
Types of Heat Shrink Tubing We Offer
At WesBell Electronics, we know heat shrink tubing and carry a wide array of polyolefin tubing, the standard choice for many different applications. Specific product types we offer include:
Polyolefin 2 to 1
Polyolefin 2:1 heat shrink tubing without adhesive is the perfect everyday solution to fit securely around wires, cables, joints and terminals to ensure effective and safe electrical performance. This tubing can shrink down to half its size with the application of heat. Covering areas with polyolefin 2:1 tubing provides superior protection against environmental factors impeding functionality.
Applications include mechanical and component protection, wire bundling, insulation, lightweight harnessing, strain relief and more.
Polyolefin 3 to 1
With the capacity to shrink to ⅓ of its size, polyolefin heat shrink 3:1 tubing without adhesive is versatile enough to offer protection for electrical wires, cables, joints and terminals. This flexible heat shrink tubing is flame retardant, UL and RoHS compliant and chemical and oil resistant, and it meets MIL-SPEC M23053/5. We stock this item in various colors and offer customizable lengths to meet your needs.
Typical applications include component protection, secure disconnection, wire harnessing and strain relief.
Polyolefin 4 to 1
Polyolefin 4:1 heat shrink tubing without adhesive can contract to ¼ of its size when heated. This product is ideal for protecting wires, cables and other components during everyday electrical use. This flexible 3/4 heat shrink tubing meets various industry requirements, including MIL-SPEC M23053/5 and UL and RoHS standards.
Applications include wiring and solder insulation, wire bundling, mechanical protection, harnessing, color coding and strain relief.
Adhesive 2 to 1
Adhesive 2:1 heat shrink tubing features an added flame-retardant sealant for safety in applications like resplicing, wire covering, corrosion protection and wire identification. This product also works well in sealing, repairing and strain relief applications. When applied to heat, the outer tubing shrinks to half its original diameter, while the adhesive on the inside melts to protect the wiring.
Adhesive 3 to 1
Adhesive 3:1 heat shrink tubing contains a moisture-proof sealant and is ideal for electrical applications such as splicing, outdoor connections and repairing cable jackets. This is a great high temp heat shrink tubing product. When heated, the inside adhesive melts for protection while the outer tubing contracts to ⅓ of its size. Typical applications include encapsulating, sealing, strain relief and corrosion protection.
Adhesive 4 to 1
Adhesive 4:1 heat shrink tubing comes lined with a moisture-proof sealant and is perfect for applications like strain relief, encapsulating, sealing, corrosion protection, splicing and repairs. This waterproof heat shrink tubing is flexible enough to offer adequate protection for cable jackets and outdoor connections. When heated, the inner adhesive melts to protect the wiring, while the outer tubing shrinks to ¼ of its size to conform to the substrate.
