Parker TexLoc PTFE 4:1 Heat Shrink Protects Irregular Shaped Objects
Ft. Worth, TX, - Parker TexLoc PTFE 4:1 Heat Shrink Tubing has the largest expansion ratio available in a PTFE tube, enabling it to protect objects that heat shrink with a smaller expansion ratio cannot. Operating in high temperatures (up to 500°F (260°C)), it is designed to protect instruments, cables, and other objects from heat, abrasion and chemical hazards in harsh environments. One of the biggest advantages to using TexLoc PTFE 4:1 is its' ability to easily slip over objects with protrusions or irregular shapes and still provide a snug fit. In addition, the thin wall promotes quick installations while keeping the tubing flexible.
Parker TexLoc PTFE 4:1 Heat Shrinkable Tubing is supplied in an expanded state. When heated, the tubing conforms to the size and shape of the original object, providing a protective covering. It may also be used to repair electrical wiring, fittings, cords and other objects. For a full recovery, the expanded diameter should be 50% larger than the diameter of the object to be recovered over.
Parker TexLoc 4:1 heat shrink meets specification AMS-DTL 23053/12, Class 2 and is supplied in four foot lengths. Sizes range from .078"/2mm expanded up to 1-1/4"/31mm expanded. Custom sizes, long lengths, colors and samples are also available.
