Benefits and uses of fluoropolymer heat shrink


Thanks to their unique properties, fluoropolymer heat shrink tubing enjoy unparalleled benefits, including protection against harsh environments and insulation from electricity, heat and chemicals. As such, PTFE, FEP and PFA heat shrink are ideal for covering and encapsulating components, such as cable jackets, temperature sensors and aircraft fittings.

Benefits of fluoropolymer heat shrink tubing

Fluoroplastic heat shrink sleeving benefit from unique properties, including high resistance to temperature, chemicals and electricity, and low friction and non-toxic features. Thanks to these exceptional properties and heat shrink’s tight fit over components, fluoropolymer heat shrink tubing offer many benefits:

  • Protection against harsh environment conditions

  • Insulation from electricity, heat, chemicals and solvents

  • Resistance to abrasion and UV radiation

  • Low friction surface, meaning that coated parts can easily slide inside other parts

  • Reduced contamination

  • Increased lifespan of encapsulated component

Applications for fluoroplastic heat shrink sleeving

As a result of their unparalleled benefits, fluoropolymer heat shrink sleeving are ideally suited for use in harsh environments, for example as temperature sensor and probe covers, shatterproof lamp coatings and battery pack assemblies, as well as for encapsulating medical devices and automotive components.

For the electronics industry, fluoropolymer heat shrinkable sleeves are ideal for insulating wires and connections in hot environments such as toasters, aircraft fittings and lamps, and providing abrasion resistance and environmental protection for certain wire joints, conductors, connectors and terminals. Other heat shrink applications include cable jackets, non-stick rollers, hose protection and UVC sterilisation equipment.

Fluoropolymer heat shrink sleeving range

We offer the choice of PTFE, FEP and PFA heat shrinkable tubing, which all have their own special properties in both shrinking characteristics and working performance. Our heat shrink sleeving is available in a variety of standard sizes and in 14 different colours that are made to order. However, we appreciate that every customer's application is unique, so we also produce a custom size heat shrink sleeve to order.

In addition to PTFE, FEP and PFA heat shrink, we also offer specialist fluoroplastic products, which are similarly effective for specialised applications:
