Printashrink PF-A1 6-1

Printashrink PF/A1 6-1 is a 6:1 shrink ratio, dual wall heatshrink polyolefin with an integral thermoplastic adhesive liner. It provides encapsulation of inner components, environmental sealing and moisture-resistant insulation, and is available in black and clear as standard in sizes up to 119.4mm ID. It can be cut and printed as required.

This glue lined, 110°C, 6:1 general purpose tube consists of a flame retarded heatshrink polyolefin tube with a thermally activated inner adhesive liner. The inner liner melts and flows to encapsulate connectors and components providing a moisture-resistant, environmentally protective, permanent seal which is able to accommodate a very wide variety of connector shapes and large differentials between pre and post shrinking. It is available in 1.2 metre lengths and with or without adhesive lining. We offer our full cutting and limited printing service on this specialist sleeve.
