Thin Wall Adhesive Lined Heat Shrink Tubing is a flexible, abrasion-resistant option for cable management. BuyHeatShrink’s Adhesive Lined Heat Shrink Tubing also creates an insulating seal once heated, providing another layer of environmental protection and heat resistance for cables and wires. When heated, 3:1 Heat Shrink Tubing reduces to one third of its original size, conforming to the shape of the underlying material for a firm yet versatile covering.
Heat Shrink Tubing is generally considered water resistant, and able to withstand environmental factors like rain and other forms of precipitation. However, submerging most heat shrink tubing products is not recommended. Thicker, heavy wall heat shrink tubing may be buried or submerged, though.
A: Thin Wall Heat Shrink Tubing is generally used where flexibility is necessary to complete a project. Thin wall heat shrink, while slightly less abrasion-resistant than its heavy wall counterpart, allows for placement in tight quarters such as machinery, and office cable management.
