Allied Wire and Cable is a value-added distributor and manufacturer of heat shrinkable tubing products. Heat Shrink Tubing is a great solution to help insulate, organize, protect and identify your wire and cable components. The tubing itself begins at a larger-than-necessary size. Once in place, it is heated by a heat gun, which causes it to shrink down to a certain size. Most heat shrink tubing specs list a shrinkage ratio in one of two ways: #:# ratio, as in 2:1 or 3:1, or as a percentage. They mean the same thing: a 2:1 shrinkage ratio means a shrink percentage of 50%, 3:1 means the finished diameter will be just 30% of the expanded diameter. The higher the number in the ratio, the great the shrinkage. Allied is an Authorized Distributor for Alpha FIT Tubing, Sumitomo Heat Shrink Tubing and we stock several different types of heat shrink tubing, including Mil-Spec compliant tubing manufactured to follow various M23053 specifications.
