Printashrink PF/A1 coloured

Printashrink PF/A1 3-1 is a 3:1 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 red, white, yellow, green, blue in sizes up to 40mm ID. It can be cut and printed as required.

This glue lined, 110°C, 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. It is UL approved and available in 1.2 metre lengths or on reels. Its availability in many colours and sizes makes it perfect for colour coding as well as printing both text and logos. We offer a range of printing and cutting services on this high strength, resilient tube also making it perfect for identification, branding and marking requirements.
