When installing pipeline or cable networks, you will often need to use shrinkable tubing to seal points of connection and avoid damage from environmental factors such as contaminants. Cold and heat shrink are two common types of adhesive tubing which can be used to seal a pipe or cable from leakage or environmental damage.

In this blog, we will discuss the difference between cold and heat shrink products, and evaluate which one is better for most applications.
