ProFIT Heat Shrinkable Tubing
The ICO RALLY brand of heat shrinkable products is made from
thermoplastic material such as polyolefins, fluoropolymers,
PVC, neoprene, and silicone elastomers. The tubing shrinks
in diameter when heated to provide insulation, abrasion protection,
strain relief, identification, and aesthetic appeal. Available
in a variety of wall thicknesses, colors, and sizes, ICO RALLY
is sure to have the exact tubing required to meet your specific
application. Many of these products meet the SAE-AMS-DTL-23053
military standard for heat shrinkable tubing.
Melt Wall vs Adhesive-Lined Polyolefin
Melt Wall / Poly Melt Wall Polyolefin Tubing
is a semi-rigid, heat shrinkable tubing that is coextruded
and selectively cross-linked to provide a tough protective
outer shrinkable jacket with a meltable inner wall.
With the application of heat in access of 135C, the inner
wall melts and is forced by the outer wall to flow in and
around all underlying surfaces and small voids. When cool,
the tubing becomes one solid mass excellent for encapsulating
delicate components from moisture and the attack of chemicals
and solvents. Melt Wall Polyolefin Tubing is recommended for
a wide variety of electronic, electrical and mechanical applications...
wherever a highly reliable, one-step approach to jacketing,
encapsulation and environmental sealing is required.
Adhesive-Lined Heat Shrink Tubing is a flexible
Heat Shrink Poly W/Adhpolyolefin lined with a thin layer of
special thermoplastic adhesive for excellent moisture protection
and strain relief. This tubing offers convenient protection
of electrical components, wire splices or bundling of wires.
Automotive, truck and marine wiring splices and connections
are quickly and easily protected from harsh environments.
With the application of heat, adhesive-lined heat shrink tubing
shrinks to a tight fit, forcing the adhesive lining to flow
and cover the substrate. When cooled the adhesive forms a
permanent, flexible and waterproof barrier.
