Table 1. Shrink Wrap Sources

To heat shrink wrap a splice:‪

  1. Select the correct diameter to allow a tight wrap when heated. The heat shrink wrap must be long enough to overlap the wire insulation about ¼ in. on both sides of the splice.
  2. Heat the shrink wrap with a heat gun; do not concentrate the heat in one location, but play the heat over the entire length of shrink wrap until the joint is complete.
