Heat Shrink Tubing: All You Need To Know
Heat shrink tubings are thermoplastic components used mainly by electricians and engineers as insulations to protect against environmental factors like moisture, dust, and chemical contamination. When heated, the heat shrink tubing decreases in size, creating a firm and tight cover over the component being insulated, for example, electrical wires. This makes it ideal for covering various substrate materials conveniently.
