Heat shrink can be used for a large range of applications including to insulate wires, providing abrasion resistance and environmental protection for stranded and solid wire conductors, connections, joints and terminals in electrical work.  It can also be used to repair the insulation on wires or to bundle them together, to protect wires or small parts from minor abrasion, and to create cable entry seals, offering environmental sealing protection

KT holds an extensive range of Heat Shrink including:

  • Non-Adhesive
  • Adhesive
  • Heavy Duty
  • Medium Wall
  • Dual Wall

Heat Shink is also provided in handy Spool Mates, Assortment Kits and Merchandisers. Whatever your heat shrink requirements, KT Has you covered.

Read on to learn more about KT’s extensive range of Heat Shrink!
