TE Connectivity (TE)’s heat shrink wrap tubing and sleeves are designed for electrical wires in the harshest environments and most demanding applications. TE’s heat shrink tubing protects against chemicals, moisture, water, high temperatures, abrasion and fungus. Besides environmental sealing, heat shrink tubing also provides electrical insulation, mechanical protection, and strain relief.
Available in single wall tubing and dual wall tubing, Raychem heat shrink tubing is engineered for use in numerous applications, including back-end connector sealing, breakouts, and connector-to-cable transitions. It is a solid alternative to taping, molding, or potting. When heated, Raychem heat sleeves conform to the size and shape of the substrate beneath, enabling quick and easy installation.
The high expansion ratio of Raychem heat shrink sleeves make it possible to repair most damaged cable jackets without removing the connectors. Available in a wide range of materials, colors, and sizes, these heat shrink tubing solutions are delivered in forms such as spools, 1.2m lengths, and cut pieces. Clear types permit inspection of covered components and offer excellent transmittance of light.
Our expansive assortment of Raychem heat shrinkable tubing solutions help manufacturers avoid countless design requirements to meet rugged performance standards and challenges imposed by ever-changing market needs.
Included in our offering is printable continuous tubing – a heat-shrinkable high-performance tubing solution that can be used with any TE thermal transfer printer to create identification sleeves for wire and cable harnesses in harsh environments. Continuous tubing is offered in an optimal reel length to maximize bulk printing and minimize storage space. Tubing diameter ranges from 2.4mm (0.031 inch) to 50.8mm (2.0 inch). Additionally, users have the flexibility to design custom length markers from 5 mm to 3 meters using TE’s WinTotal software.
