Product Data Sheet
 
Characteristics
This data sheet covers the requirements for heat shrink thin wall tubes whose dimensions will shrink to a predetermined size upon the application of heat above 100 deg. C. Ikebana manufacture two categories of heat shrink thin wall tubes as follows:
  • Non-flame Retardant Heat Shrink Thin Wall Tubing - Ikebana TWT. The standard colour for Ikebana TWT (NFR) is black. On special request other colours like blue, red, yellow, green, white and grey can be manufactured.

  • Commercial Grade Self-extinguishing Thin Wall Tubing - Ikebana TWT-F. The standard colours for Ikebana TWT (FR) are black, blue, red, yellow, green, white and grey.
 
Ikebana heat shrink thin wall tubes have:
  • EXCELLENT HEAT RESISTANCE: Made from cross linked polyolefin, non-melting.

  • LARGE APPLICATION RANGE: Expansion ratio 2:1 and available in a range of colours.

  • EASY INSTALLATION: In the factory or at site using gas torch, hot blower or in hot oven. Shrinks uniformly over uneven surfaces.

  • SIZES: Available in either metric size (1.0 mm to 50.0 mm) or imperial inch size (3/64" to 2")
 
Typical Applications
Ikebana Thin Wall Tubes are flexible commercial grade tubing useful for applications such as bundling, colour coding and harnessing of wires in automotive, electrical and electronics industry. Ikebana thin Wall Tubes offer excellent insulation and mechanical protection for wires. A wide color range makes the tubes very attractive for various applications.
