Heat Shrinking

Heat shrinking is ideal for splicing wires and protecting electrical connections and comes in a plethora of sizes to suit most applications.

What is Heat Shrink?

Heat shrinking is a shrinkable tube that shrinks radially when exposed to heat.

Heat shrinking has many useful applications, including to provide electrical insulation to wires, connections, joints, terminals, and splices, as well as bundling loose items such as wires and as a protective covering.

Shrink Ratio

Most heat shrinking has a 2-to-1 shrink ratio, meaning you can shrink a tube with a one-inch diameter to half an inch in diameter.

Once you’ve shrunk the tube it remains at that size, molding itself to whatever it is surrounding.

This shrinking and molding action helps protect wire splices and connections from the elements as well as from inadvertent electrical shorts to any metallic objects that might come in contact with the connection.

Heat Shrinking Tools

Heat shrinking can be shrunk in several ways, the most effective being a hot-air gun or heat gun.

Precise shrinking calls not only for optimum temperature control, but also for the appropriate air volume and power, for the shrinking application at hand. Iroda offers a professional range of hot-air tools for this field, so you will always find the perfect fit.
