A popular alternative to heat shrink products, cold shrink tubing and end caps are designed to form tight seals without the use of a heat gun or any other tool like tape or glue. The easy-to-apply products, which come in a variety of sizes, provide protection for cables and cable ends that are exposed to a lot of wear and tear.
The cold applied products are artificially stretched at the factory and a breakaway core is inserted to keep it in place. To apply, just position the tubing or end cap and slowly remove the plastic core. The material will quickly contract and form a tight seal. Installation couldn't be easier. Unlike with heat shrink products, the material doesn't have to be heated up with special tools. This becomes particularly useful in hard to reach places and when the use of naked flames can cause an issue. The material is also easy to remove where necessary.
Introducing: cold shrink, the fast and easy alternative to heat shrink tubing that anybody can use. With no need for heat guns and other tools, you don’t need to be a professional to use it. But just because it’s easy doesn’t mean it won’t get you results.
So how does it work? How does it shrink without the application of heat? The answer is simple: it’s always trying to shrink. These tubes of EPDM rubber are factory expanded and assembled on a removable core which holds them at their expanded size. All you have to do is position your length of tubing where you’d like it to be applied and then remove the plastic core. Next, the cold shrink tubing will do what it’s made to do: shrink to its smallest possible size and form a secure and waterproof seal around wires, connections or terminals.
You don’t need flames, gas or “hot-work” permits, all you need is a cold shrink tubing provider that can provide the length of tubing you need for a price you can afford.
