Description / Abstract:


This specification covers an irradiated thermally-stabilized, modified polyolefin plastic in the form of thin-wall, heat-shrinkable tubing with a low recovery temperature.


This tubing has been used typically as a very flexible, electrical insulation tubing whose diameter can be reduced to a predetermined size by heating to 100 °C (212 °F) or higher, but usage is not limited to such applications. This tubing is stable for continuous exposure from −55 to +135 °C (−67 to +275 °F).

For flame – retardant, opaque tubing, refer to AMS 3587.

Safety - Hazardous Materials:

While the materials, methods, applications, and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards which may be involved in such use. It is the sole responsibility of the user to ensure familiarity with the safe and proper use of any hazardous materials and to take necessary precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of all personnel involved.
