PET heat shrink tubing is often used to cover laser cut hypo tubes, braided catheter shafts, spring coils,
radiopaque marker bands, and other parts that requirea thin but very strong outer layer. The tubing provides a smooth transition over sharp edges and can be sealed against fluid leakage. PET heat shrink tubing also can be used to cover tapered structures—such as tapered coils—that cannot easily be covered using conventional techniques. In addition, you can use PET heat shrink tubing to bundle and compress components such as plastic and metaltubing, wires, and optical fibers into the smallest possible
space. Ultrathin-wall tubing allows you to downsize or add features to a device without increasing the profile.For example, using PET heat shrink tubing to bundle components can free up enough space to add another working channel inside an endoscope. It might even enable you to reduce the size of a device by a whole French size.
Another use for PET heat shrink tubing is for bundling common plastic and metal tubes to create a quick,
