Biocompatible – Zeus FEP heat shrink is non-toxic and USP Class VI approved, so you can trust that it meets your biocompatibility needs.
Chemically Resistant – FEP heat shrink is impervious to nearly all common solvents whether they are acids, bases, or hydrocarbons.
Excellent Dielectric Strength – FEP heat shrink possesses exceptional dielectric strength and thus doubles as insulation when used with electrical components.
Excellent UV Transmission Ratings – This product’s UV ratings mean that it can stand up to extended UV exposure and not degrade or breakdown. The ability of our FEP heat shrink to withstand this type of UV exposure means that it can be used under sterilizing UV light and outdoors.
Flame Resistant – The non-flammable nature of FEP makes it a good choice for environments where there is high heat or the possibility of flame exposure. FEP heat shrink is UL 94 V-0 rated.
Low Absorption of Solvents – Consistent with FEP’s negligible chemical activity, FEP heat shrink has extremely low absorption of solvents.
Many Preferred Traits over PTFE – FEP heat shrink has a lower gas and vapor permeability than PTFE and is less expensive; FEP is also more flexible than PTFE and possesses greater optical clarity.
More Lubricious than PFA – FEP has a lower coefficient of friction than PFA giving it a highly lubricious surface.
Optical Clarity – The transparency of FEP heat shrink assures that your covered parts remain visible yet protected; this allows you to monitor the integrity of covered parts or wire splices.
Sterilizable – FEP’s temperature tolerance and physical properties allow it to easily tolerate gamma, ETO, e-beam, and autoclave sterilization protocols.
