Glue Lined Heat Shrink Tubing
Adhesive & Waterproof | Available in Multiple Sizes & Colors
Glue-lined heat shrink tubing is a type of heat shrink tubing that incorporates an inner layer of adhesive. This tubing is used to encase wires, cables, or other objects, and when heat is applied, it undergoes a shrinking process, tightly conforming to the enclosed items. The unique feature of glue-lined tubing is the presence of adhesive that melts and bonds with the surface of the enclosed materials during the heat-shrinking process
The adhesive serves several purposes:
- Secure Encapsulation: The melted adhesive forms a secure and conformal bond around the contents within the tubing, providing mechanical support and strain relief.
- Moisture Resistance: The adhesive creates a moisture-resistant barrier, enhancing protection against environmental elements. This makes glue-lined heat shrink tubing particularly useful in wet or humid conditions.
- Sealing: The adhesive helps in sealing out contaminants, preventing dust, dirt, and other substances from reaching the enclosed components.
Glue-lined heat shrink tubing finds applications in various industries, including electronics, telecommunications, and automotive, where a combination of insulation, mechanical protection, and environmental resistance is essential for maintaining the integrity of electrical connections or cable assemblies.
