Sleeve size and shrink ratio
● Heatshrink sleeving/tubing is extruded at a minimum, fully shrunk size,
measured by the inner diameter (i.d.) of the sleeving, and then
EXPANDED to the supplied (ordering) size.
● The most suitable sleeving size for your ident markers will have an
expanded i.d. which slides easily over your cable (hose, tube etc.) and
then, following the application of heat by heat gun, tunnel or flame,
shrinks down onto the cable.
● Unless the full electrical and/or mechanical properties of the marker sleeve
are required, using a sleeve which is bigger than necessary, will only add
time, energy and cost.
● For a uniformly sized product such as a cable, hose, tube etc. without a
connector fitted, select the minimum expanded (ordering) size which will
slide on easily (see 2:1 sizing chart).
● For a product which is not uniform, such as a cable with a connector fitted,
select the minimum expanded (ordering) size which will fit over the largest
section (the connector) and can shrink down to the smallest section
(the cable). If there is not a suitable size on the 2:1 chart, 3:1 or 4:1
heat shrink sleeving may be the solution. If not, please contact us for
● Expanded (ordering) sizes below are minimum values – heatshrink is
often over-expanded during manufacture.
● Identimark can supply markers at any length to suit your requirements
(or mark repeatedly along the length of a reel). Please note: there is also
a slight longitudinal reduction of around 5-10% when fully shrunk.

*Although the standard ordering sizes of heat shrink are by the expanded inside diameter, for information purposes, the tables also give the approximate equivalent ‘lay flat’ measurement.
