- Accelerate Your Prototyping
Our heat shrinkable tubing is available in a variety of sizes, dimensions, and shrink ratios and made using state-of-the-art methods to ensure the covered products exposed to extreme heat, corrosion, shock, moisture, and other critical conditions are perfectly protected and ready to perform.
Heat shrink tubing from Zeus provides a state of the art method for the application of a tight, protective covering to items that will be subjected to the extremes of heat, corrosion, shock, moisture, and other harsh environmental conditions. In medical applications, for example, FEP Heat Shrink is a popular material selection for reflowing the nylon / Pebax® jacket over braiding to form a finished shaft in catheter design.
We manufacture high-performance heat shrink tubing in a variety of polymer resins including PTFE, FEP, PFA, ETFE, PEEK, and PTFE / FEP Dual-Shrink™. We can tailor our heat shrink products to meet your exact specifications in regard to materials, shrink ratios, tolerance, and size.
Provided in an expanded state, Zeus heat shrinkable tubing “shrink wraps” intricate and irregular shapes with a simple application of heat. The result is a protective covering that greatly extends life, increases reliability, and improves performance of the covered components and parts used in thousands of applications.
Industries We Serve
Zeus heat shrink tubing offers a synergy of desirable properties including dielectric strength, temperature resistance, chemical resistance, purity, lubricity, and reliability. For more than 50 years, Zeus has supplied the medical, electronics, aerospace, automotive, oil and gas, and many other industries with high-performance polymer heat shrink.
Catheter manufacturers have long clamored for a better avenue to remove heat shrink after the reflow process. Zeus responded with FluoroPEELZ™ – an optically clear peelable heat shrink that increases yield and improves worker safety. With a simple linear tear, operators can quickly and easily remove the heat shrink to reveal a smooth surface finish that is free of imperfections.
Our heat shrinks are also used prominently in GI/endoscopy applications. The color patterns of PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall™ spiral stripe heat shrink aids physicians in maneuvering wire guides through the body’s tortuous pathways. The temperature resistance of heat shrinks is ideal for insulating cauterizing forceps in biopsies.
We are the world’s only manufacturer of heat shrinkable PEEK, known as PEEKshrink™, enabling end users to push the boundaries of their future designs. PEEKshrink™ is renowned for its thermal resistance of 500 °F (260 °C) as well as mechanical strength and purity. PEEKshrink™ fulfills a critical need to securely splice and insulate sensitive wiring from environmental rigors that exist in aerospace, automotive, and oil and gas applications.
Aerospace design engineers use our FEP Lay-Flat™ Heat Shrink as a seamless release aid for forming composite materials due to its lubricity and reusability. PTFE / FEP Dual-Shrink™ provides a tight, moisture proof bond over wires, cables, connectors, and other componentry that offers a temperature resistance of up to 450 °F (232 °C) and can withstand severe stress involving pull and vibration.
Many of our products conform to aerospace, automotive, military, and commercial standards; and in most cases, we exceed the intent of these standards.
