Zeus FEP 1.6:1 heat shrink tubing provides a tight, protective covering for wires or other critical components subjected to extremes of heat, corrosion, shock, moisture or other acute environmental conditions. All heat shrink tubing comes in its expanded state, but a brief application of heat allows the tubing to mold itself around intricate and irregular shapes to create a snug, seamless covering. The use of heat shrink tubing extends the life of the items it covers and supports effective performance. FEP is resistant to most chemicals except molten alkali metals, fluorine (gas) and some other halogen complexes. It also has excellent dielectric strength. FEP heat shrink is sometimes a preferred choice over PTFE, particularly in medical device applications, because of its lower shrink temperature (400 degrees) and its ability to be sterilized. Compared to PFA, FEP offers greater flexibility, optical clarity, and high lubricity.
Markets & Applications ▼
FEP heat shrink tubing serves critical functions in several industries including:
- Fluid transfer
- Fiber Optics
Polymers are used increasingly in aircraft design due to their exceptional characteristics for volatile environments. In addition this material is cost-efficient and lightweight. Heat shrink products are used in wire harness, encapsulation, insulation and catheter manufacturing aid applications. They provide seamless coverings to composite forming mandrels. They are also used for fiber optic, hydraulic, wire coating, and sealing solutions. Please contact us for more information regarding the appropriate products for your application.
