PTFE Heat Shrink 2:1 • AWG

PTFE Heat Shrink Tubing possess excellent characteristics for use in high temperature applications, corrosive environments and as an electrical insulator. PTFE Tubing has the lowest coefficient of friction among the Fluoropolymer which makes it ideal for applications that need a lubricious slippery material to reduce linear friction. PTFE Heat Shrink Tubing is chemically resistant to all common acids and solvents making it almost 100 % chemically inert. PTFE Tubing has a high dielectric strength over a wide range of temperatures which is why it is an excellent electrical insulator in corrosive environments and high temperature applications.

AWG Heat Shrinkable material is available in three different wall thicknesses just like Extruded PTFE Tubing.  Standard Wall , Thin Wall and Light Wall.

Heat Shrinkable PTFE Tubing carries a Flame Rating of UL94 VO and WV-1 which make it ideal for insulating, terminating, moisture sealing, splicing, wire bundling and electrical applications. Tef Cap can also manufacture Heat Shrink PTFE Tubing for applications where wires or instrumentation needs to be colored coded for identification purposes.

PTFE Heat Shrink offers the ultimate performance with the highest continuous working temperature of all Fluoropolymers.

PTFE possesses the lowest coefficient of friction of all Fluoropolymers.

PTFE is a non-wetting, self-lubricating material.

PTFE tubing can be sterilized chemically and is auto-clavable.

PTFE Heat Shrink Tubing is made to Mil -I- 23053/12

USP Class VI & FDA compliant

For larger diameter metal objects it is recommended that you bring the object up to room temperature or better. Failure to do so will cause material to wrinkle and create air gaps between the tubing and subsurface. Rotating the part will also help with a uniform shrink.PTFE Heat Shrink Tubing will tend to split longitudinally if tubing is not allowed to recover to about 75 % of its expanded diameter or if it is over heated during shrinking.
