A Short Clear Heat Shrink Tubing Introduction

By Jill McDermet

Heat shrink tubes and sleeves have always been used to protect and coat your wires, but the clear heat shrink tubing wasn’t as widely used until recently. If you need to protect, insulate or seal your wires and splices this clear tubing is perfect.

The clear heat shrink tubing is not much different than the standard polyolefin tubing but has a few more desirable features. The material is made with a high 2:1 ratio which makes it great for securing and protecting your bundles of wires.

The great thing about using clear heat shrink tubing is that they are highly tested to withstand high temperatures, oils and chemicals that the wires and pipes may encounter when being used. Standard clear heat shrink tubing will come in over a dozen sizes and colors so you can be confident to find the tubing to fit your needs.

Clear heat shrink tubing meets or may even exceed military specifications for quality installation so you can be confident that the tubing will work perfectly for home and working projects. Plus, most all clear heat shrink tubing is flame retardant which makes it even more desirable.

Depending on the size and amount of shrink tubing you should be able to find it in your budget. Some online retailers will sell packs of 4 to 10 shrink tubes for $10 or less. The more tubing you need the more you can expect to pay. For example, a 100 foot roll of tubing could cost you at least a couple hundred dollars or more depending on the brand you buy and where you purchase it from. This is why it is smart to do some shopping around first so you can find the best tubing for your need and in your budget.
