Heat Shrinkable Mylar ®
General DescriptionHeat Shrinkable Mylar ® is a superior, high dielectric insulating tubing that is shrinkable as much as 50% in order to provide an immovable, tight fit. Temperature requirements are approximately 90°C. for shrinking purposes with a heat cycle as short as 1 second. May be shrunk by various methods such as heat guns, boiling water, electrical coil heaters or in ovens.
