Using Heat Shrink Tubing to Simplify Your Electrical Life: Preventative Maintenance to Minor Repair
One of the great engineering marvels in the world is heat shrink tubing. While these are simple plastic tubes, the uses for them go beyond mere protection of electrical wiring and go into the realms of insulation and repair.
You need to learn how to use heat shrink tubing to simplify your electrical life if you've never used it before when dealing with electric wiring. While it may appear to be a simple product, these little plastic tubes have the ability to organize and protect cables so your electronic items are more conveniently stored or used. And with the ability to heat the tubing with a heat gun around the wires, you'll be able to see the beauty in how much we've advanced in engineering.
What You Can Do With Heat Shrink Tubing
The most common use is for insulation from the elements when electric wiring has to be placed outside. It usually comes made with different materials to help protect against moisture, UV rays and even chemicals. But you can also organize your wiring and cables by using the heat shrink tubing for bundling.
Plus, did you know that you can do repair by covering up worn insulation on wires? That's thanks to heat shrink tubing being made of properties on par with wire insulation. In most cases, those repairs are for mere temporary quick fixes, though it's strong enough for permanent repair on additional issues with cable splices or connections.
Perhaps even more useful is the ability to keep cables and wires together in a way that prevents them from bending or straining. When wires get twisted, it can inhibit proper performance of an electronic item.
How to Prepare Heat Shrink Tubing for Use
When you buy heat shrink tubing, be sure to see what the diameter will be once it's shrunk with your heat gun. The packaging will tell you this, plus indication of what the size is before shrinking. Once you place the tubing over a cable or wire, be sure to leave at least a quarter of an inch overlap to allow for a better fit when the tubing shrinks.
Heating is very easy with a heat gun, though you can heat the tubing in a heat shrink oven before applying it to anything. While using the heat gun, start revolving the cable to ensure the tubing shrinks all the way around and without causing air bubbles. Keep in mind you shouldn't overuse the heat gun or it could overheat the heat shrink tubing to a point where it ruins its sustainable quality.
Yes, these little plastic tubes are an amazing little product that are used somewhere in the world every day. It's worth buying them in bulk considering how cheap they are and the fact that even our electrical wiring needs thorough protection in a very wired world.
