Zeus® PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) 2:1 heat shrink light wall tubing provides an effective technique for encapsulating and protecting wires, cables and other critical components exposed to volatile environments. Provided in an expanded state and in 4-foot lengths, this material can be shrunk through heat application to create a tight, protective sleeve for material subjected to extremes of heat, corrosion, shock, moisture or other acute environmental conditions. PTFE possesses the lowest coefficient of friction making it ideal for applications needing lubricious material. It is chemically resistant to all common solvents, acids and bases, chemically inert and has a high dielectric strength over a broad temperature range. This tubing can be sterilized chemically and is auto-clavable. The minimum shrink temperature for PTFE tubing is approximately 654°F to 670°F (346°C to 354°C).
Markets & Applications ▼
PTFE heat shrink light wall tubing offers solutions in several industries including:
- Fluid transfer
- Fiber optics
It possesses exceptional characteristics for use in high temperature applications, corrosive environments and as an electrical insulation. Applications specific to the medical field include use in electrosurgical instruments, medical components and devices and laparoscope instrument insulation.
Custom Fabrication & Contract Manufacturing ▼
While our standard PTFE shrink tubing comes in 4-foot lengths, it can be ordered in spools and in various colors for production run quantities. Proprietary processes and equipment give us the expertise to produce customer-specific lengths, which precisely fit the items needing coverage and make them as effective as possible in their application. Our cuts are straight, maintain the integrity of the tubing dimensions and hold tight tolerances. Minimum quantities may apply depending on current stock. For more custom fabrication information, please contact a Component Supply representative who can inform you of the best options for your specific application.
