Heat Shrink Tubing

Adhesive Lined, Heavy Duty Heat Shrink Tubing (10 cm)



This is heavy duty, dual-wall, adhesive lined heat shrink tubing. It protects against moisture and corrosion while providing electrical insulation and mechanical protection. It forms a strong bond to the material it's protecting using industrial grade adhesives and once cured, proves very difficult to remove.

The first wall of this tubing is traditional heat shrink which can shrink down to 1/3 of it's original size. The second layer is an industrial adhesive that melts and flows when heated and bonds with many types of materials including PCBs, plastics, and rubber insulation. The combination of heat shrink and adhesive forms a moisture resistant seal and provides a quicker and easier alternative to potting (submerging a material completely in resin).

Adhesive lined heat shrink tubing is great when you need to waterproof a cable interface, like where the cable meets the connector, or for spliced wire, like when you need to extend the length of wire.

We also offer it in very wide sizes that can accommodate small circuit boards and offers very good protection for a design when you can't use an enclosure. This could be due to weight issues like for lightweight animal tracking devices or size concerns, like it needs to be hidden inside a small crevice in a tree.

Both standard heat shrink tubing and adhesive lined heat shrink tubing can protect cables and circuits, but adhesive lined heat shrink tubing offers much greater protection. The drawback to choosing this is that, much like potting a design, you won't be able to recover the original circuit. The adhesive is very strong and hence difficult to remove. This should be taken into account when deciding between the two choices.
