XDW is a Thin Walled Heatshrink Tube with a Glue Lined inner surface. It is made from a dual extrusion of polyolefin and adhesive. It is commonly referred to as ‘dual walled’.
- Highly flexible
- Very high shrink ratio 3:1
- Flame retardant
- Good mechanical adhesion
This is a heatshrink with many applications in the electrical and mechanical protection areas. Since the glue holds the tubing in place it is commonly used for brake and fuel pipe protection in the automotive industry. Typical electrical applications are strain relief on cords, and insulation repair. In general this heatshrink is not recommended for waterproofing since the glue layer is primarily a mechanical adhesion and is thin. Use CABRICAL’s SMDW medium wall heatshrink for fail safe waterproof joints.
