Cable Management- Heat Shrink
Sycor Technology is your Heat Shrink superstore! Available in an assortment of materials, shrink ratios, and colours. Heat Shrink is an extremely versatile product that can be used in a diverse range of applications and industries.
Heat Shrink comes in a larger overall diameter than required in order to accommodate the wires and cables that need to be placed inside of it. Once the right amount of heat (depending on the material) is applied to it, the Heat Shrink will contract to form a tight fit around the inner components. Sycor also offers adhesive-lined Heat Shrink (also known as dual-wall), in which the inner walls of the tubing are coated in an adhesive substance. When heated to the right temperature, the adhesive liquefies and forms around the tubing’s inner components, creating an even tighter, stronger bond. Identifying the correct shrink ratio (the amount the tubing will contract once heat is applied to it, based on the material) is imperative to ensure that no gap is left between your Heat Shrink and its inner components.
Heat Shrink is a very popular product because of its multi-functionality and, aside from wire management, can serve the purposes of:
- Wire identification
- Strain relief
- Electrical insulation (i.e. covering a splice)
- Added protection and resistance to water, oil, and abrasion
- Temporary or permanent repairs
