GTS

Serie-GTS-1170x532
Note: knowing the diameter of the object to be covered, the width of the flattened tubing can be calculated using the formula 1.57079 x diameter. Knowing the width of the tubing, the diameter of the object to be covered can be calculated using the formula 0.6366 x width of tubing.

SELF-EXTINGUISHING HEATSHRINKABLE TUBING IN SILICON “SERIES GTS”

GENERAL FEATURES

The heat shrinkable silicone GTS series is particularly used in those situations in which there is the need to protect components, electrical cables and mechanical components from high temperatures.
Besides possessing excellent electrical characteristics and a good resistance to chemicals agents its great flexibility makes it extremely easy to use. Being GTS heatshrinkable a very versatile product it is used in many fields, since it doesn’t exist on the market, a heatshrink tubing able to meet the need of strength against high temperatures with maximum flexibility.
