This package includes 50 pieces MDPC SMALL Black pre-cut heatshrink tubing 4:1 of 15 mm length.
This is the next generation of our pre-cut heatshrink – made in Germany exclusively for MDPC-X of course – replacing the Anthracite pre-cut heatshrinks which we offered from 2008 to Q1 2019. It improves what was considered world’s best already: Higher heat resistance, beautiful smooth matte surface, extreme overexpansion capabilities (for an extreme shrink ratio of 6.7:1).
It is made for easiest application over SMALL or XTC cable sleeving. The big initial inner diameter (ID) of 7.4 mm gives you total clearance while putting the heatshrink over the sleeving. At initial ID its ultra thin wall (no glue, no dual wall!) has a thickness of only 0.2 mm, ideal for traditional shrink style sleeving techniques with SMALL size cable sleeve on AWG 18 and AWG 17 wires. Shrinking down to one fourth (4:1) of its initial ID, it reaches 1.8 mm, which is needed for AWG 18 and AWG 17 wires.
The true magic of this new generation pre-cut heatshrinks is the massive overexpansion capability. With a long nosed plier inserted into the heatshrink to widen the inner diameter, you can easily and safely reach an ID of 12.0 mm – a shrink ratio of 6.7:1! This huge initial ID to minimum ID (still shrinks down to 1.8 mm ID) difference will allow you completely new approaches in a variety of situation
