How to Use Heat Shrink Tape

Heat shrinkable tape is a fantastic tool that makes it easier than ever to protect something, like wires or a wire harness, with heat shrink tubing.

Heat shrink tape gets around the limitations of heat shrink tubing, which typically would need to have wires or a wire harness run through the tubing before the tubing is shrunk down. If you have wires, a hose, a wire harness, etc. that has already been installed, it would be difficult and in some cases impossible to get heat shrink tubing around or over it.  In these situations, heat shrink tape can easily wrap around what you are trying to protect, and then be shrunk down.

How to Use Heat Shrink Tape

Below we’ve listed step-by-step instructions on how to install our heat shrinkable tape, in addition to a video which also goes through the process in a little more than 2 minutes.

1 –  Wear Gloves

Wear Gloves

When using any type of heat shrink tubing product you should always wear gloves to protect yourself from the heat coming off of either a heat gun, or in some cases, a blow-torch.

2 –  Cut the Heat Shrink Tape

Wear Gloves

Unroll the tape and cut to your desired length using an everyday pair of scissors.

3 –  Heat One End of the Tape Until it Curls

Use a heat gun to heat one end of the heat shrink tape until that end curls.  This makes it easy for the curled end to be applied to whatever you are wrapping the tape around.

If you prefer, you can also use a zip tie to hold the tape end in place.  You simply want to make sure that the tape will hold its position during the heat shrinking process.

Note: Gamma FIX-105 tape needs to be heated to a temperature of about 200° F in order to shrink, for this reason we do not recommend using a hair dryer, as hair or blow dryers, at their best, only tend to heat up to about 140° F.

4 –  Apply Curled End of Tape

Take the heated/curled end of the heat shrinkable tape and apply it to what you desire to wrap the tape  over.  The heated end should stick, making the next step easier.

5 –  Wrap the Tape with Each Wrap Overlapping Itself

Wrap the tape around the cables/wires, (or whatever it is you are wanting to protect), making sure to overlap the heat shrink tape over itself so that once it shrinks, it adheres to itself.

6 –  Place a Zip Tie Over the End of the Heat Shrink Tape

Wrap the tape around the cables/wires, (or whatever it is you are wanting to protect), making sure to overlap the heat shrink tape over itself so that once it shrinks, it adheres to itself.

7 –  Use a Heat Gun to Shrink the Heat Shrinkable Tape

Use a heat gun to shrink the heat shrinkable tape.  Make sure to move the heat around the heat shrink tape, heating it as evenly as possible.

8 –  Remove the Cable Tie

Once the heat shrink tape has shrunk down small enough or it is completely shrunk down and in place, move the zip tie off of the tape, and completely remove it by cutting it with a pair of scissors.  Make sure you still have gloves on given that the heat shrink tape will be hot if you happen to touch it, and the zip tie will likely be hot as well.

9 –  Installation is Complete

Wear Gloves

Let the tape cool and installation is complete.

How to Use Heat Shrink Tubing

You may not be fully aware but heat shrink tubing is a part of your daily life.  Heat shrink tubing is used on products ranging from phone cords to motor homes to airplanes and beyond.  Heat shrink tubing isn’t very difficult to install but can be a little intimidating if you’ve never done it before.  Below are some instructions to get you started with using heat shrink tubing.

We also have a post, “What is Heat Shrink Tubing?” where we answer a number of frequently asked questions for those new to heat shrink tubing.

How to Use Heat Shrink

Watch our video on how to use and/or install heat shrink tubing, or check out the step-by-step instructions below.

Heat Shrink Tubing

Heat Shrink Tubing comes in a variety of sizes and shrink ratios.  There are heat shrink variations made for some of the most unique circumstances, like gas and diesel resistant heat shrink, UV resistant heat shrink, or even heat shrinkable tape.  You can learn more about our many heat shrink offerings by clicking here, or on the button below.

How to Install Heat Shrink Tubing

Step-by-Step Instructions

1 – Identify Where You Need to Install the Heat Shrink Tubing

The first thing to do is identify where you want to install your heat shrink tubing.  In this example we are going to install heat shrink over an iPhone charging cable that has seen better days.  The cable has lost a portion of its cable jacket making the wire(s) underneath vulnerable.  Exposed wires like these can result in cables/wires not working, and in some cases exposed electrical wires are very hazardous.  Heat shrink tubing is a great way to cover the cable and resolve these issues.

2 – Choose the Right Heat Shrink Tubing for Your Needs

If you’re new to heat shrink tubing, choosing the right tubing can be a bit tricky.  Heat shrink tubing comes in many different sizes, different shrink ratios, and there are many different types that offer unique characteristics.  The first thing to know is that heat shrink tubing sizes are listed in a before shrinking size.  So measure what it is you need the heat shrink to fit over and make sure you choose a size larger a little larger than that. To make sure our heat shrink tubing would fit over the iPhone cable and the connector at the end of the cable, we chose a 3/8 of an inch heat shrink tubing for this example.

The next thing to know, is the shrink ratio.  Shrink ratio measures the difference between the size of the tubing before and after it shrinks.  For example, we chose to use a 3 to 1, (usually written in ratio form as 3:1), heat shrink tubing on the iPhone cord, which means the tubing starts 3 times larger than what it shrinks down to.    We offer heat shrink tubing in 2:1, 3:1, 4:1, and 6:1 shrink ratios.

The last thing to be aware of when selecting your heat shrink tubing are any additional special qualities or characteristics that you might need.  For example, there are diesel and fluid resistant types of heat shrink out there, as well as heat shrink that is UV resistant.  For the iPhone cord we chose to use an adhesive lined heat shrink tubing that will make sure the heat shrink glues itself in place.

3 – Measure your Heat Shrink Tubing

Make sure to measure your heat shrink tubing so that it comfortably covers the exposed wire, or whatever vulnerability it is you want to cover.  It doesn’t have to be an exact science but you want the tubing to easily extend beyond whatever it is you want to protect.

You can mark where you would like to cut the heat shrink with a pencil to make things easier.

4 – Cut the Heat Shrink Tubing

Once you’ve measured the heat shrink tubing simply cut the tubing. The vast majority of heat shrink tubing can be cut with a normal, everyday pair of scissors.  

5 – Cover the Exposed Wire (Vulnerability) with the Heat Shrink Tubing

Once you’ve cut the heat shrink tubing, take the cut piece and place it on the cable in preparation to shrink it into place.

6 –  Turn on Heat Gun

We highly recommend using a heat gun for installing heat shrink as heat guns reach the necessary temperatures for installing heat shrink in the safest way possible.  However, heat shrink tubing can be installed using a lighter, blow torches, or in some cases even a hair dryer.

7 –  Place Cable with Heat Shrink Tubing Over the Heat

It’s time to start shrinking the heat shrink.  Take the cable with the heat shrink on it and put it over the heat gun, or whatever your heat source may be.  If there is enough heat the heat shrink should start shrinking almost immediately.

8 –  Rotate & Move the Heat Shrink Tubing (or Heat Source)

In this example the heat gun is stationary, so make sure that you keep moving the heat shrink tubing so that it shrinks evenly and completely.  You also want to make sure that you don’t keep the heat in one place on the heat shrink for too long, as it can burn through the heat shrink and potentially damage the cable underneath.

In many installation cases, the heat shrink might be stationary while the heat gun/heat source is what is moving.  Regardless of the methodology, make sure that the heat source does not stay in one place for too long and that the heat gets all around the tubing for an even and complete installation.

9 –  Installation is Complete

You will be able to see that the heat shrink has conformed to what is underneath it, in this case the cable and connection.  Make sure you don’t touch the heat shrink as it will still be hot. Let it cool and you are done.

How to Install Cold Shrink Tubing, Step-by-Step Instructions

1. Make Sure the Cold Shrink Tubing is Facing the Correct Direction

Rip Cord through Cold Shrink Tubing

Start by making sure the cold shrink tubing is facing the right direction.  The cold shrink tubing has a rip cord that will need to be pulled during installation, you want that rip cord to go from the top to the bottom, all the way through the cold shrink tubing.

2 –  Place the Cold Shrink Over the Cable

Cold Shrink Over Cable
Cold Shrink on Cable before Shrinking

Put the cable you wish to protect through the cold shrink, before you tighten the cable into place.

3 – Fully Tighten Your Connection into Place

You want the connection fully installed and tightened.  As soon as you install the cold shrink it is intended to be a permanent installation that is only removable by cutting it off.

4 – Move the Cold Shrink Up the Cable & Over the Connection

Move the cold shrink up and over the connection to make sure it fully covers the connection.  You want it in the correct position as soon as you pull the rip cord and remove the cold shrink’s plastic inner core.

5 – Slowly Pull the Rip Cord

As soon as you start to pull the rip cord the perforated plastic core will begin to pull away at the top of the cold shrink tubing.  Where the cold shrink first grabs hold is a crucial step in the installation process.  As the plastic core at the top pulls away, you will likely want to slightly adjust the position of the cold shrink so it shrinks down at the right spot.

6 –  Continue to Pull the Rip Cord

As soon as the first bit of cold shrink has shrunk down to the spot of your choosing, simply continue to pull the rip cord until the inner plastic core is fully removed from the rubber cold shrink tubing.

9 –  Installation is Complete

Wear Gloves

Congratulations, you’re done!  You now have IP68 rated weather protection over your connection.

Note: If the other side of your cable is already connected as well, you might be wondering how to remove the perforated rip cord from the cable.  Using an ordinary pair of scissors you can cut the rip cord off, or you can pull the rip cord so it unravels itself off of the cable.

Prevent Wildfires with Heat Shrink Alternatives

Prevent Wildfires with Heat Shrink Alternatives

Wildfires are a growing problem.  Want proof?  The National Interagency Fire Center has been keeping statistics on wildfires since 1983.  Since that time wildfires have increased by 223%.  In more recent history, wildfires increased between 2019 and 2021 by 17%.  Over 10 million acres were burned by wildfires in 2020 alone.1

As the leading provider of weatherproofing products for the telecommunications industry we are accustomed to talking about products that will be used on cell phone towers, on buildings and rooftops, etc.  What has surprised us however, (initially anyway), is that in recent months more companies have started looking at heat shrink alternatives.  The primary reason?  Wildfires.

Prevent Wildfires with Heat Shrink Alternatives

The more we looked into the issue, the more sense it made to get away from heat shrink in outdoor applications.  Nearly 85% of wildfires are started by humans according to the U.S. Forest Service Research Data Archive.2  The National Park Service states that most of these fires “result from campfires left unattended, the burning of debris, equipment use and malfunctions, negligently discarded cigarettes, and intentional acts of arson.”3

So, how do humans do a better job of preventing these devastating wildfires?  Issues like unattended campfires, the burning of debris, and negligently discarded cigarettes are largely matters of education, (just ask Smokey Bear).  Arson must obviously be dealt with as a criminal issue.  Equipment use and malfunctions however, present glaring issues that can be handled better.  And unfortunately, equipment use and malfunctions have resulted in some of the largest wildfires in United States history.4

Percentage of wildfires in the US caused by humans.

Unfortunately, California is a prime example of wildfires resulting from equipment use and malfunctions.  Just last year, the Dixie Fire burned nearly 1 million acres and over 1,300 structures, including the entire town of Greenville, CA.  Investigations now show that a tree that should have been removed, fell across a powerline operated by Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), sparking the fire.  However, the powerline in question was part of a 10 mile stretch set to be buried5, a move which would have prevented the fire altogether.

The Dixie Fire adds to PG&E’s already poor record with wildfires over the last several years.  In 2020, PG&E pleaded guilty to 84 counts of involuntary manslaughter for having started California’s massive Camp Fire in 2018  Former PG&E CEO and President, Bill Johnson made PG&E’s fault in the matter plain when he said, “Our equipment started that fire.”6.  Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey, who put together a report about the 2018 Camp Fire, stated that PG&E was guilty of “reckless behavior,” and that PG&E’s use of badly outdated technology was “evidence of absolute indifference.”7

Some critics will point out that California’s forest management also plays a role in these wildfires, which is a valid point.  California’s lack of forest management creates a massive amount of fuel for these fires, with experts estimating that California needs to improve its forest management efforts to “around ten times its current level.”8

Business Ramifications

How well a state deals with forest management issues however, is outside of a company’s control.  What should matter to companies are the liability issues.  PG&E has faced “tens of billions of dollars in potential fire liabilities,” leading them to file for bankruptcy in 2019.  PG&E has since restructured their debts, agreeing “to pay $25.5 billion in fire-related claims.”9  Just last month, PG&E agreed to another $55 million dollar settlement in relation to the Dixie and Kincaide Fires.10

Wildfires can be absolutely devastating, destroying property, livelihoods, and in some cases, even human lives. That should be reason enough for businesses to take as many preventative measures as possible.  From a purely financial perspective however, the cost of upgrading to better, wildfire preventative equipment and practices surely costs less than the millions and potentially billions of dollars lost to wildfire related claims.

Just ask PG&E.  Shortly after the Dixie Fire started, the company announced a plan to bury 10,000 miles of power lines so they won’t spark wildfires.  The plan had apparently been in the works but was expedited by several months after the start of the Dixie Fire.  As PG&E’s CEO, Patricia “Patti” Pope said to reporters on the day of the announcement, “It’s too expensive not to do it.  Lives are on the line.” 11

The Heat Shrink Problem

All this leads us back to heat shrink tubing.  An easy, wildfire preventative measure that many companies could start making right away is to stop using heat shrink tubing in outdoor applications.  More specifically, if the heat shrink is being installed outdoors than it should be replaced with an alternative product that does not require a blow torch or heat gun to install.  California is already urging companies to make this standard practice and it’s completely understandable as to why.

Heat shrink tubing is typically used in these outdoor applications as a protective measure.  To make sure that electrical connections keep out water and weather in general, heat shrink is installed over mated connections.  The heat shrink adds a protective layer to ensure the connection is not interfered with, keeps water out, stays mated, etc.

As a heat shrink tubing company, we don’t like to see heat shrink tubing being phased out, but from a safety perspective it makes too much sense.  This is especially true when you consider the U.S. Department of the Interior’s “10 Tips to Prevent Wildfires.” Number 8 on that list states to “Keep Sparks Away from Dry Vegetation,” and to “make sure you never operate equipment that produces sparks near dry vegetation.”12  Using a blow torch or heat gun is quite literally doing the opposite from what the Department of the Interior recommends.  Using a blow torch or heat gun in such scenarios could easily be considered reckless.

All of this may seem obvious, but unfortunately, heat shrink is still seeing regular use in compromising situations.  For example, there are cable boxes all over the United States in which heat shrink is being utilized.  These cable boxes are outdoors and can be found frequently, very frequently.  You have more than likely seen some of these boxes, (many of them are green), which house cables and connections that contractors need access to.  By the nature of their locations these boxes are often found around dry vegetation.  Heat shrink is being installed via blowtorches or heat guns inside these boxes regularly.

For those who might be wondering, yes, blowtorches are quite often used instead of heat guns.  The reason being, heat gun batteries are not known to last very long and having multiple batteries can add up, (in terms of cost).  It’s far more cost effective to have a blowtorch, as propane is far cheaper than batteries for a heat gun and the blowtorch is going to give you much more “bang for buck.”  What this really means is that blowtorches, or open flames, are regularly being used around dry vegetation.

In truth it’s a miracle more fires have not been started by means of heat shrink installation.  That’s a credit to the contractors using these tools.  However, if you were to speak to these contractors, (as we have), they too prefer getting away from the use of heat shrink tubing.  After all, the contractors understand it only takes one bad heat shrink installation to start a fire and they don’t want to bear the responsibility for a fire.

Why Does Heat Shrink Continue to be Used?

The simple answer is cost.  Heat shrink tubing alternatives admittedly cost more and there are a lot of connections out there which do need to be covered and protected.  It’s understandable that companies are trying to save money, but that savings quickly disappears as soon as a fire breaks out.  The larger the fire the more foolish that decision looks.

Looking at Heat Shrink Alternatives

As stated previously, Gamma Electronics is a heat shrink tubing company.  We started out as a heat shrink tubing company and we continue to be a leading heat shrink supplier for numerous industries.  

Cold Shrink Tubing

In outdoor applications like those described above however, we strongly encourage customers to look at an alternative like cold shrink tubing, which requires no heat to be installed. In fact, cold shrink does not require any tools for installation, and it can be installed in seconds.  Cold Shrink tubing is the most similar product to heat shrink tubing in terms of functionality, and has become the product that our customers have turned to when heat shrink isn’t an option.  Even better, we have already manufactured cold shrink solutions sized for the cables and connections in the aforementioned, green cable boxes seen above.

Slide Locks & RF Weatherproof Boots

Of course, there are other alternatives, including slide locks, (a type of clam shell enclosure), and silicone rubber boots.  These can be very specific however in terms of needing to match both a cable and a connector in order to provide a watertight seal.

Magic Tape (Self-Amalgamating Tape)

Another alternative is Magic Tape, (often referred to as self-amalgamating tape).  Magic Tape is a cut-to-size solution that could see implementation right away.  Magic tape adheres to itself and does not require heat or adhesive to create a watertight seal.

Conclusion

Companies, and more specifically utiltiy and cable companies, may very well continue to use heat shrink tubing outdoors, but it only takes one fire before it becomes obvious that doing so was a bad idea.  Many companies love the low cost of heat shrink, but when you consider the literal billions of dollars that can quickly accrue from fire-related claims, is it worth it?  Using heat shrink in outdoor scenarios is reckless.  Heat shrink alternatives might be more expensive, but they will only save you money and headaches in the end.
