Adhesive lined heat shrink tubing is ideal for producing strong, weathertight seals on any heat shrink installation. During the application of heat from a heat gun or other heat source, the inner adhesive wall melts and flows, creating an adhesion layer to ensure a snug fit to your harness and/or connector. This glue lined heatshrink tubing is available in 4' strips.
This extremely high shrink ratio shrinkable tubing shrinks down to 1/6th of its original size making it the ideal solution for fitting heat shrink tubing over large connectors.
STEP ONE:Measure the Shrinkflex® shrink tubing to length and cut with a scissor. The thickness of your bundle, as well as the desired final appearance, will determine the length of the tubing you cut. Generally, a piece 1 1/2” - 2” long will accommodate almost any need. Single wires, or smaller bundles, require shorter pieces.
STEP TWO:Slip the Shrinkflex® heat shrink tubing over the bundle and position it so that both the sleeved and unsleeved portions are sufficiently covered. Notice the small pieces of tubing in- stalled on single wires as part of a color coding system. If your project requires multiple operations, always work up from the smallest to the largest bundle.
STEP THREE:Gently apply heat to Shrinkflex® heat shrink tubing from a heat gun, hair dryer or torch with an appropriate attachment. Keep the heat source far enough away so that hot metal or direct flame does not come in contact with the tubing, wires or sleeving. Move the heat around the bundle to prevent damaging the sleeving and to ensure that all areas of the tubing have been shrunk. Once cooled, your installation is complete.
