Printasleeve H/S PVC

Printashrink H/S PVC is a flexible, low cost, heatshrinkable PVC which is self-extinguishing and 30% stronger than standard heatshrink polyolefin. It retains some flexibility after shrinking and resists most chemicals and oils. It can be cut and printed as required.

This soft and flexible low cost heatshrink PVC is used for electrical insulation, protection against abrasion and noise reduction in the manufacture and repair of many different applications including busbars, rope/ cable ferrules, tool handles, conveyor rollers and sports equipment. It is available in diameters from 1.6mm up to 102 mm ID, with 600V rated UL approval. We offer a range of printing and cutting services on material.
