Medical grade PTFE heat shrink tubing is a type of tubing that is commonly used in medical applications due to its unique properties. PTFE, or polytetrafluoroethylene, is a synthetic fluoropolymer that is known for its high temperature resistance, chemical resistance, and non-stick properties.

The heat shrink aspect of the tubing means that it can be heated to a specific temperature, causing it to shrink and conform to the shape of the object it is covering. This makes it ideal for use in medical devices where a tight, conformal fit is required.

Medical grade PTFE heat shrink tubing is often used in applications such as catheters, endoscopes, and other medical devices where biocompatibility and sterilization are critical. It is also used in applications where high temperature resistance and chemical resistance are required.

If you are interested in using medical grade PTFE heat shrink tubing, it is important to work with a reputable supplier who can provide tubing that meets the necessary regulatory requirements for medical use.

PTFE Heat shrink tube Medical Grade Properties:

PTFE Teflon heat shrink tubing is made of high quality PTFE material extruded and expanded, with outstanding wear resistance, oil resistance, chemical corrosion resistance and high temperature performance. It is suitable for applications where high temperature properties are required, for insulation protection and pressure release at connection welds and for zone identification of covered components.
◆ -80℃–280℃, starting shrinkage temperature 280℃, suitable for occasions requiring high temperature sex, the product is mainly used for insulation protection and pressure release at connection welding and zone identification of covered components, as well as electronics, medical equipment, aviation, military industry, etc.

1. first of all, the heat gun temperature to 400 ℃, because the rapid heating shrinkage, coupled with heat loss, so the temperature should be adjusted to high. 2.

2. Start heating shrinkage, must be Teflon heat shrinkable tube around the axis direction of rotation, can not only heat a place, so there will be uneven shrinkage. Until the circle is completely shrunk, the whole circle becomes transparent, start moving longitudinally, repeat the Teflon heat shrink tube around the axis direction of rotation heating, and keep repeating until completely shrunk. Remember not to localize the heating temperature too high and keep heating to one position. Teflon heat-shrinkable tube away from the heat source back to white is a normal phenomenon.
3. Check the effect of shrinkage, a shrinkage of qualified Teflon heat-shrinkable tube must be flat and smooth without creases, and the product being protected should also be tightly seamed, there can be no bulging phenomenon
4 . As long as the corresponding temperature adjustment, you can quickly shrink, if there is no heat gun, with a lighter is very slow, uneven heating, and also can not achieve good results, Teflon heat shrink tube how to quickly heat shrink, in fact, very simple, the temperature to 400 ℃, you can quickly shrink, and the effect is also very good
