PTFE shrink tubing, also known by the brand name Teflon shrink tubing, shrinks when it is heated up. This type of tubing can be used to seal and secure different types of connections, wiring and cables. 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. The most common type of tool used to apply heat to the shrink tubing is a heat gun. A heat gun is able to generate the required level of heat that is needed to shrink the tubing. PTFE tubing requires a minimum shrink temperature in the range of 654 to 670 degrees Fahrenheit.
