Properly Shrinking Heat Shrink Tubing
To properly shrink heat shrink tubing, start by selecting a heat source that will apply the appropriate temperature. Heat shrink tubing will state the shrink temperature, while heat tools are rated based on flame temperatures. Once a heat tool is selected, apply heat gradually to avoid shrinking the tubing inconsistently or burning the tubing. Additionally, continually moving the heat source along the length of the tube will reduce the likelihood of burning the tubing during installation.
