Case Study - Polyolefin Heat Shrink

We were recently approached by a Hobbiest who was tasked with making a miniature steam engine for a charitable competition.

The steam pipes on the engine needed to be insulated and so a red polyolefin heat shrink was chosen, as this also indicated that the pipe could be hot, as 'red' is usually associated with danger, as it was possible the engine could be used by a child with learning disabilities.

The polyolefin heat shrink was selected for its insulation properties, low shrink temperature of around 95 °C and of course colour and its cost effectiveness.
