FEP Heat shrink tubes

FEP Heat shrink tubes

Raw material information

Our FEP heat shrink tubes are manufactured from pure high-molecular FEP tubes (Fluorinated ethylene propylene) to provide them with an extraordinary stretching behavior and a long life-time.

FEP is part of the fluoropolymers and offers properties such as a high UV stability, best possible anti-adhesive behavior on a particular smooth surface, a wide range of temperatures of use and a nearly universal stability against acids and bases. The shrinking temperature is about +180°C +/- 10°C. (356°F +/-15°F)


Properties

Very good anti-adhesive properties (no adherence)
Highly transparent
Easy to apply
Long-lasting at continuous temperatures up to + 205 °C (+ 400 °F)
Safe for food and beverages
UV-stable
Labs-free (free of parasitical painting moistening substances)
Easier and faster to apply than PTFE heat shrink tubes
