PTFE shrink tubing can also be called by the brand name Teflon shrink tubing. Regardless of what you call it, it is the same type of tubing, which will shrink when heated up. This type of tubing can be used to seal and secure different types of connections, wiring and cable. Shrink tubing comes in different sizes, including standard four foot lengths, as well as custom cut sections for specific applications.
PTFE Shrink Tubing Has a Minimum Shrink Temperature
PTFE shrink tubing has to be heated up in order for it to shrink. This is most commonly done with a heat gun, as it is able to generate the required level of heat needed to shrink the tubing. PTFE tubing requires a minimum shrink temperature in the range of 654 degrees Fahrenheit to 670 degrees Fahrenheit.
