ANCOR MARINE
Adhesive-Lined Heat Shrink Tubing (ALT)

Ancor's adhesive lined tubing is superior to conventional heat shrink tubing. It's made from cross-linked polyolefin, which is much stronger than PVC. With a 3:1 shrink ratio, it can shrink up to one-third of original size. The waterproof adhesive is heat-activated. It bonds tenaciously to insulating covers and terminals, producing strain relief that makes a stronger connection than the mechanical connection alone. Shrinks at 257°F, safely below the temperature at which insulation melts.

      Comments about Adhesive-Lined Heat Shrink Tubing (ALT):

      It is what it is - marine grade heat shrink wrap. Crazy expensive, but it does say marine on it. The glue on the inside makes sliding the wrap more difficult than regular shrink wrap - but having the glue is a good thing.

            This heat shrink worked very good. It shrunk evenly and flowed the adhesive out both ends as predicted.
