Printashrink CPF/FR3 (FLAT)

Printashrink CPF/FR3 (FLAT) is a flattened continuous 3:1 shrink ratio heatshrink polyolefin ideal for printers. It is UL approved, has a working temperature of 135°C and is fire retardant. It is available in a range of colours and sizes up to 39mm ID and can be cut and printed as required.

This flattened continuous 3:1 heatshrink polyolefin tube is compatible with most printers. It is a UL/CSA approved sleeve with a 135°C working temperature and is ideal for covering irregularly shaped pieces or pass over larger components. The higher shrink ratio also allows any one supplied diameter to fit a greater range of different sized applications. It is available on bulk and smaller reels to suit any print set up and is used in a number of commercial and industrial applications. We offer our full range of printing and cutting services on this high quality tube.
