Printashrink DR

Printashrink DR is a diesel-resistant, non-flammable heatshrinkable tube which also offers excellent abrasion resistance. It has a continuous operating temperature up to 150°C and a 2:1 shrink ratio, and is available in black in sizes up to 50.8mm ID as standard and can be cut and printed as required.

This diesel resistant medium walled high performance heatshrink elastomer sleeving is specially formulated for high temperature fluid and long term heat resistance. It offers excellent protection against most fluids including aviation fuel, diesel, hydraulic fluids and lubricating oils. This makes it suitable for protecting military, ground and vehicle cables and harnesses. Furthermore its abrasion resistance and superior mechanical properties recommend it for harsh environments. It is used in many sectors including military, aerospace, marine, industrial and railways.
