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 hose and then, following the
   application of heat by heat gun, tunnel or flame, shrinks down
   onto the hose.

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, pipe etc. without a

   connector fitted, select the minimum expanded (ordering) size which will

   slide on easily (see 2:1 sizing chart below).

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
   ratio heat shrink sleeving may be the solution. If not, please contact us for
   further options.

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.
