Heat shrink tubing is a tube which shrinks in diameter when heated-to varying thickness and diameter. There are three main categories of this product: thin wall, medium wall and thick wall. Heat shrinkable tubing is used to insulate wires, connections, joints and terminals. It can also be used to repair wires, bundle wires together and to protect wires or small parts from minor abrasion. It is made from thermoplastic material and includes polyolefin shrink tubing, PTFE shrink tubing and PVC shrink tubing, among others. There are other types including adhesive lined shrink tubing that helps provide a good seal and better adhesion, while others rely on friction from the closely conforming materials.

There are several ways polyolefin heat shrink tubing is created. It can be placed over the connection to be protected and then heated with an oven or hot air gun. Other less effective methods include using a soldering iron or even a lighter. These processes cause the tubing to contract as much as one sixth of its original diameter allowing a tight fit over irregularly shaped joints. This provides insulation and strain relief, as well as protection from dust and debris.

Jaguar PVC wire shrink tubing has a low shrink temperature and superior strength. It has been engineered for total compatibility with PVC jacketed wire and cable to insulate, identify, bundle, protect, repair and beautify in electronic, electrical and mechanical applications.
