RS Pro Portable Heat Shrink Kit

From RS Pro a portable heat shrink kit consisting of a range of high-quality heat shrink tubing. The tubing contained in this versatile kit is in a range of colours, (including harmonised colours) and diameters to suit a range of different applications. The box itself is made from plastic with clear ’click’ close draws and a carrying handle on the top. The box can also be stacked or wall mounted for easy access

What is Heat Shrink Tubing?

Heat shrink tubing is a type of extruded plastic tubing that can be cut to size and fitted over a wire or cable joint to protect and insulate the connection. When heated is applied the tubing shrinks permanently providing a protective seal. The amount the tube shrinks depends on its shrink ratio. When you buy the tubing it is in its expanded state, this expanded tubing has memory so when it is heated it returns to its original state

How to Use Heat Shrink Tubing

The diameter of the wire or cable is measured and the correct sized heat shrink tubing selected. A piece of the tube is cut to size which is long enough to cover the connection or joint after heating. This then slides onto the wire. After the cable or wire has been joined the piece of heat-shrinkable tube is moved over the joint and heated with a heat gun until it shrinks and forms a tight wrapping around the joint

What is Heat Shrink Tubing Used For?

Heat shrink is very versatile and is used in both commercial and industrial applications for protecting and sealing and encapsulating cable joints and in-line components such as disconnect terminals and wire splices. Heat shrinkable tubing can also be used to carry out repairs on existing worn or torn cable or wiring insulation Applications include the following:

• Electrical insulation
• Environmental protection against moisture, dust, and chemicals.
• Mechanical protection to wires and small parts from abrasion
• Mechanical strain relief on cable and connector joints to prevent damage caused by flexing or bending
• Bundling and organizing harness wires, cable, and tubing
• Colour coded identification of cables, wires, and components

Note

Kit also includes refill stock numbers for ease of use.
