Heat shrink tubing is used to protect and insulate exposed wires, terminators, and contacts in electrical appliances. It is also used to seal wire insertion points and provide bulkhead protection. Heat Shrink Tubing is available in a wide range of materials, and is generally flexible, durable, and resistant to abrasion, water, and most chemicals.

How does heat shrink tube work? Once the tubing is applied to the wires that are being treated, and heated, the tubing shrinks around the wires, providing a protective wrap around the wires and reducing the risks of any electrical fires and other types of events. Heat Shrink Tubing can take as little as few seconds to become effective, once the tubing has been placed around the wires that are being heat sealed. At this point, the tubes are sealed through the use of a heat seal gun that blasts hot air to the wires and creates a vacuum seal through the wires.

What’s more, tubing is simple to use. Through the many color and size options, or even the thickness of the plastic that can be chosen tubing can be an effective way to increase the type of the wires that are included, in case they have been damaged, and therefore can allow the homeowner, contractor or electrician to repair the wire and therefore reducing the instance in which the wire is replaced. Heat shrink tubing wholesalers can be used to repair the wire to new, reducing the friction and abrasion, creating the appearance and the function of an entirely new wire – which can be an effective way to cut costs through repair jobs of the electrical components within the home.
