Heat Shrink Tubing

Protect from Abrasion, Corrosion, and Noise

Our heat shrink tubing provides electrical insulation, mechanical protection, environmental sealing, and strain relief for applications such as back-end connector sealing, breakouts, and connector-to-cable transitions. It is a solid alternative to taping, molding or potting. When heated, it conforms to the size and shape of the substrate beneath, enabling quick and easy installation. Its high expansion ratio makes it possible to repair most damaged cable jackets without removing connectors. Available in a wide range of materials, colors, and sizes, heat shrink tubing is delivered in forms such as spools, 1.2m lengths, and cut pieces. Clear types permit inspection of covered components and offer excellent transmittance of light.

Tubing Comparison

Single Wall vs Dual Wall

TE's single wall tubing provides superior insulation, strain relief, and protection against mechanical damage and abrasion. Benefits include:

  • Reliably consistent dimensions and physical properties
  • Various types meet AS23053, MIL-PRF-46846, and VG95343 standards
  • Some products are UL recognized / CSA certified 


TE's dual wall tubing seals and protects against the ingress of dust and fluids. TE's Raychem dual wall tubing uses an adhesive lining that melts and flows during installation, creating a moisture-resistant protective barrier. Benefits include:

  • Controlled amounts of adhesive and consistent results
  • Compliance with AS23053
  • Some products have UL recognition / CSA certification
  • Selected tubings are type-approved by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and Lloyd’s Registry of Shipping
