Welcome to Printasleeve - High Quality Printed Sleeving Products for All Your Professional Needs


SR silicone rubber sleeving is a highly elastic, flexible, high and low temperature resistant tubing with excellent ageing characteristics. Bore sizes 0.5mm to 25mm with a 0.5mm wall thickness and a wide variety of colours including neon and metallic are standard. Bespoke diameters, wall thicknesses, colours and different curings also available as are cutting and printing services.

Silicone rubber hose is available with bores of 0.2mm up to 200mm. It is extremely useful for cable harnessing because of its high elasticity and flexibility. Micro bore sizes are commonly used on electrical applications, mid-range sizes for liquids and powders in the food processing and pharmaceutical sectors, and the largest sizes for dielectric tubing and hot air ducting. Silicone rubber is valued for its strength, hygienic properties, longevity of life, flexibility and translucency (where applicable). We can supply Water Council and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved materials for use specifically within hygiene-critical applications. We also offer methanol resistant and anti-bacterial grades, platinum (non-yellowing) and peroxide curing and varying hardnesses.

Free Artwork Service

As part of the fully comprehensive print process, we offer a free artwork service for both thermal and hot foil printing. This involves, advising on print suitability, resizing to fit final fitted size and re-ordering information supplied in spreadsheet format according to the sequence of installation or into kits.

To ensure superior print results, it stands to reason that artwork needs to be best quality and this is why we advise on whether artwork is suitable for purpose in terms of fine detail and ornate graphics which may not successfully transfer to smaller sleeves and markers, or where a high shrink rate is required. Furthermore, as heatshrinkable products do not shrink in a uniform manner (transverse and longitudinal shrink ratios differ widely) we resize artwork so that there is a strict correlation between original and final fitted dimensions.

We accept many formats for artwork including, but not limited to, tiff, eps, bmp, jpg, gif and PDF. For jpeg, save your image using the best quality. We use a single colour print system. This means the sleeving and print can be different colours, but the print itself can only be one colour. For best results send your image in black and white with what you would like printed in black. We can then take the image and print it on your selected sleeving in the correct print colour.

We also print from spreadsheets, CSV or text files, .lists or drawings. Where required, we can sort, print and pack according to the sequence of installation.
