Heat Shrink Tubing Protects Irregular Shaped Objects
Parker Hannifin’s TexLoc PTFE 4:1 heat-shrink tubing operates in high temperatures (up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit (260 degrees Celsius). It was designed to protect instruments, cables and other objects from heat, abrasion and chemical hazards in harsh environments. TexLoc PTFE 4:1 slips over objects with protrusions or irregular shapes while still providing a snug fit. In addition, the thin wall helps promote quick installations while keeping the tubing flexible.
The tubing is supplied in an expanded state. When heated, the tubing conforms to the size and shape of the original object. It may also be used to repair electrical wiring, fittings, cords and other objects. For a full recovery, the expanded diameter should be 50 percent larger than the diameter of the object to be recovered over.
Parker TexLoc 4:1 heat shrink meets specification AMS-DTL 23053/12A Class 5, ASTM D2902 Type 1, and AMS 3584A. Sizes range from .078 inches/2 millimeters expanded up to 1-1/4 inches/31 millimeters expanded. Custom sizes, long lengths, colors and samples are also available.
