Heat shrink sleeves are a popular and dependable way to protect wire connections, resist corrosion, repel moisture and more. But what exactly do they do, and how do they work? This guide covers the basics of heat shrink sleeves, from their various uses and application methods to installation tips.
Common Problems with Heat Shrink Sleeves and How to Avoid Them.
Heat shrink sleeves are a versatile and reliable solution, but they can occasionally present problems when they’re not applied correctly. The most common issue is improper sizing - if the sleeve is too small, it won’t be able to fully expand to fit the area. It’s also important to remember that some materials need more heat than others - take care to research the type of material you're working with so you don't damage or melt it with too much heat.
