Wire Size Chart
Generally, the largest tube that shrinks down tightly onto an object should be chosen. This allows the heat shrink tubing
maximum stress relief and this will yield the longest service life.
Example:
A multi-conductor cable needs to be covered with HSTT Type Dry-Shrink ™ Heat Shrink. The area to be covered has a
measured outside diameter of .700" (17.8mm). The two possibilities are HSTT75-48-5 and HSTT100-48-5.

The proper choice is HSTT100-48-5 since the tube will recover more than HSTT75-48-5. The HSTT75-48-5 will fit over the
.700 inch (17.8mm) outside diameter; however, this is not the proper choice since it is smaller than the HSTT100-48-5. In
general, heat shrink should recover at least 10% – 20% to reduce stress and yield the longest service life and thicker walls,
resulting in thicker insulation, more abrasion protection, and more strain relief.

Heat Shrink Frequently Asked Questions:
1.
•
•
•
•
•
What are the main considerations when installing heat shrink?
Pick the right diameter. (See Wire Size Chart on page 5)
Consider the overlap between the tube and the cable insulation
Heat evenly around the tube
If using a flame, use a diffuser and keep it moving; start further away from the tube and move closer gradually
If it’s adhesive lined product, the adhesive will be pushed away from the recovery starting point; in general, start recovering
at the center and work toward each end
2. What’s the significance of a material being cross linked?
The majority of heat shrink is made from cross linked materials. Cross linked materials do not melt and flow; they soften and
become rubbery but still hold their basic shape. The main benefit is improved thermal, physical and chemical resistance.
3. Why is shrink temperature important?
A tube with a lower shrink temperature will generally shrink faster. Products with higher shrink temperatures generally have
higher performance. With any heat shrink tube, you can increase the shrink speed by using hotter temperatures, within reason.
Be sure to consider the heat resistance of components under or around the heat shrink.

Y
4. Can the tube be damaged by overheating and what are the signs of overheating?
Excessive temperatures and long exposure times cause damage faster. Most tubes will withstand 200°C to 250°C for a
couple of hours without significant damage. Overheating can be difficult to detect since damage may not be obvious. If using a
torch, use a flame diffuser, keep the flame at a proper distance, and keep the flame moving to apply heat gradually. Heat
guns are easier to work with but can still cause damage. Charring, blistering, or cracking of the surface is a definite sign of
overheating and damage.
5. How does operating temperature range relate to shrink temperature?
If the operating temperature is above the shrink temperature of the tube, the tube will be in a soft rubbery state, and it will have
lower mechanical properties and abrasion resistance.
7. What’s the maximum voltage at which I can use Panduit heat shrink?
Unless noted otherwise, all the products have a 600V AC rating. They are “low voltage” products. Per NEMA, Low Voltage is
600V or less; Medium Voltage is 2,400 to 69,000 V; and High Voltage is 115k to 230kV.

6. What is the significance of shelf life?
Per AMS-DTL-23053, all tubes have a defined minimum shelf life, dependent on the base material. The main consideration is
expanded and recovered dimensions. If the product meets requirements, the shelf life can be extended up to 50% of the
original value and this can be done multiple times.

Heat Shrink Frequently Asked Questions:
1.
•
•
•
•
•
What are the main considerations when installing heat shrink?
Pick the right diameter. (See Wire Size Chart on page 5)
Consider the overlap between the tube and the cable insulation
Heat evenly around the tube
If using a flame, use a diffuser and keep it moving; start further away from the tube and move closer gradually
If it’s adhesive lined product, the adhesive will be pushed away from the recovery starting point; in general, start recovering
at the center and work toward each end
2. What’s the significance of a material being cross linked?
The majority of heat shrink is made from cross linked materials. Cross linked materials do not melt and flow; they soften and
become rubbery but still hold their basic shape. The main benefit is improved thermal, physical and chemical resistance.
3. Why is shrink temperature important?
A tube with a lower shrink temperature will generally shrink faster. Products with higher shrink temperatures generally have
higher performance. With any heat shrink tube, you can increase the shrink speed by using hotter temperatures, within reason.
Be sure to consider the heat resistance of components under or around the heat shrink.

R
Y
4. Can the tube be damaged by overheating and what are the signs of overheating?
Excessive temperatures and long exposure times cause damage faster. Most tubes will withstand 200°C to 250°C for a
couple of hours without significant damage. Overheating can be difficult to detect since damage may not be obvious. If using a
torch, use a flame diffuser, keep the flame at a proper distance, and keep the flame moving to apply heat gradually. Heat
guns are easier to work with but can still cause damage. Charring, blistering, or cracking of the surface is a definite sign of
overheating and damage.
5. How does operating temperature range relate to shrink temperature?
If the operating temperature is above the shrink temperature of the tube, the tube will be in a soft rubbery state, and it will have
lower mechanical properties and abrasion resistance.
7. What’s the maximum voltage at which I can use Panduit heat shrink?
Unless noted otherwise, all the products have a 600V AC rating. They are “low voltage” products. Per NEMA, Low Voltage is
600V or less; Medium Voltage is 2,400 to 69,000 V; and High Voltage is 115k to 230kV.

6. What is the significance of shelf life?
Per AMS-DTL-23053, all tubes have a defined minimum shelf life, dependent on the base material. The main consideration is
expanded and recovered dimensions. If the product meets requirements, the shelf life can be extended up to 50% of the
original value and this can be done multiple times.

Generally, the largest tube that shrinks down tightly onto an object should be chosen. This allows the heat shrink tubing
maximum stress relief and this will yield the longest service life.
Example:
A multi-conductor cable needs to be covered with HSTT Type Dry-Shrink ™ Heat Shrink. The area to be covered has a
measured outside diameter of .700" (17.8mm). The two possibilities are HSTT75-48-5 and HSTT100-48-5.

thermoplastic insulation
with a jacket of
extruded nylon or
equivalent material.
The wire is rated 75°C
wet or dry. THWN wire
suitable for exposure to
mineral oil and to liquid
gasoline and gasoline
vapors at ordinary
ambient temperature
is marked “Gasoline
and Oil Resistant I” if
suitable for exposure
to mineral oil at 60°C,
or “Gasoline and Oil
Resistant II” if the
compound is suitable
for exposure to mineral
oil at 75°C. Gasolineresistant wire has been
tested at 23°C when
immersed in gasoline.
It is considered
inherently resistant to
gasoline vapors within
the limits of the
temperature rating.

The proper choice is HSTT100-48-5 since the tube will recover more than HSTT75-48-5. The HSTT75-48-5 will fit over the
.700 inch (17.8mm) outside diameter; however, this is not the proper choice since it is smaller than the HSTT100-48-5. In
general, heat shrink should recover at least 10% – 20% to reduce stress and yield the longest service life and thicker walls,
resulting in thicker insulation, more abrasion protection, and more strain relief.

Heat Shrink Sizing Example
Generally, the largest tube that shrinks down tightly onto an object should be chosen. This allows the heat shrink tubing
maximum stress relief and this will yield the longest service life.
Example:
A multi-conductor cable needs to be covered with HSTT Type Dry-Shrink ™ Heat Shrink. The area to be covered has a
measured outside diameter of .700" (17.8mm). The two possibilities are HSTT75-48-5 and HSTT100-48-5.
