The term heat shrink refers to any number of thermoplastic materials that reduce in diameter when heated. Commonly heat shrink is used to protect or insulate wires. In this way, it creates a barrier to protect the wires from abrasion, environmental conditions, and even chemical exposure. It is often available in a range of colors depending on the style you select. The important thing to remember when dealing with electrical connections is to use heat shrink that is lined with epoxy. That epoxy will melt when heated and create a water tight seal further protecting your electrical connections. Now that we have covered what heat shrink is, let us take a look at the different types of heat shrink that are available.
