Company Expands with Shrinking Product

Heat Shrink Tubing Line is Added to Compliment Existing Heat Shrink Caps

Arnold, MO - July 21, 2009 - If you are needing to insulate, repair, bundle or protect wires, your options for heat shrink products has expanded. Yes, pun intended as StockCap, a product protection company, is increasing its product offering to include heat shrink tubing. Now you can purchase one of two styles with a variety of sizes and colors to choose from, and the online store is a fast and easy way to buy low quantities.

Adding to the already existing line of heat shrink caps, StockCap has made more options available by adding Dual Wall and Single Wall Heat Shrink Tubing. "StockCap realized the importance of having both product lines available, especially for those in the electrical and electronics industry. Heat shrink tubing is a vital part of these industries," said Jeff Barket, Director of Sales and Marketing, "and we want to contribute to the ease of procuring these products." The single wall heat shrink tubing line consists of 14 different sizes and the dual wall heat shrink tubing line of nine sizes, available in various colors. Either style can be purchased online.

Heat shrink tubing is sized by the diameter of the tubing prior to any shrink activity and the original size is known as the supplied or expanded inside diameter. Made from thermoplastic materials, the tubing shrinks when heated providing a seal around the contents inside. The original diameter shrinks resulting in a maximum recovered inside diameter. Single wall heat shrink tubing reduces the inside diameter by 50% when heated and, dual wall reduces to 33% of the original diameter after heating. A typical heat gun with a range as low as 250°F (121°C) is sufficient to activate the material and a temperature no higher than 347°F (175°C) is recommended.

The main difference in the two styles of heat shrink tubing, single and dual wall, is an adhesive that is added to the inside of the dual wall tubing. Essentially, the dual wall is two layers; hence the name. This adhesive provides extra sealing protection, making this style especially useful when a moisture-proof seal is needed, or in areas of high humidity. The adhesive lined materials are available in various wall thicknesses.

StockCap adds the heat shrink tubing line to compliment the existing line of heat shrink caps. For more information about heat shrink caps, please visit us on the web by following this link. www.stockcap.com/prod_detail.asp?id=170&cat=12
