Heatshrink-Tubing Selection Chart
These charts below are useful for selection of heatshrink. The ‘lay flat’ dimension of heatshrink is commonly used with large diameter heatshrink tubes, where the heatshrink is measured flattened out, and the fl at dimension measured. The table below is used to convert this into a diameter as used by CABRICAL. The bus bar table is useful to work out heatshrink requirements for bus bars. It is important to allow for bends, and use one size up if the bar has many bends. This makes it easier to get the heatshrink onto the bar.
