RW-175/RW-175-E heat shrink tubing

BETTER CLARITY WITH REDUCED FLEX CRAZING

Enhanced RW-175 heat shrink tubing offers better clarity, reduced flex crazing and excellent protection.

RW-175/RW-175-E tubing is highly resistant to flame, high temperatures and chemicals.  Modified polyvinylidene fluoride material provides outstanding abrasion and cut-through resistance. With its 2:1 shrink ratio across a wide range of sizes, it offers excellent insulation, mechanical protection and strain relief of multi-pin connectors, solder joints and other delicate connections. Its very thin wall design and standard clear color make this tubing suitable for dense packaging applications and/or visual inspection of covered components. Appliances, industrial machinery, communications equipment, aircraft and satellites are among the application areas.
