2:1 UV Reactive Heat Shrinkable Tubing

2 to 1 Standard Wall PVC Heat Shrink Tubing

PVC heat shrink tubing is very similar to Polyolefin shrink tubing in several ways - PVC and Polyolefin can both be applied and shrunk in various conventional ways such that with a little training, just about anyone can use them. Shrink temperatures are low enough that no special equipment other than a basic heat gun, or flameless torch can be used. Both materials are highly resistant to common automotive, marine and aerospace fuels, as well as many household, and electrician/installers' cleaning fluids. Like polyolefin, PVC heat shrink tubing is suitable for low to medium voltage applications.

The major differences are in the areas of weatherability, toughness and appearance. Unlike polyolefin, any color PVC heat shrink can be used outdoors with little to no UV degradation seen over long periods of time. In the case of polyolefin heat shrink, it is highly recommended that only black be used outdoors. PVC has a much glossier appearance, and is also tougher, stiffer and much more scratch resistant than polyolefin. Run your fingernail across both - you'll see.

The final differences are: PVC has a lower shrink (and use) temperature than standard polyolefin heat shrink, and Lastly - PVC clear shrink tubing is water clear. Although polyolefin clear is see-through and you can read a label through it, PVC heat shrink is crystal clear.
