What is heat shrinking tubing
Heat shrinking tubing, also known as heat shrink film, is a type of plastic tube used for electrical insulation, protection, and wire management. This tubing is made from polymer materials that have the unique property of contracting when exposed to heat. When heat is applied, the tubing shrinks around the object it’s placed over, creating a tight and protective seal.
Heat shrinking tubing is often used in the electronics industry to safeguard wires, connections, and terminals from moisture, dust, and mechanical wear. They are also valuable in repair and maintenance work, where they can recreate or renew the insulation of wires and cables.
The application of heat shrinking tubing typically involves heating using a heat gun. When heat is applied, the tubing starts to shrink around the desired area, creating a snug and protective barrier. Heat shrinking tubing is available in various sizes, colors, and materials to meet different application needs.
LSF is under the category thin-wall.
