Shrink-N-Shield® (PVDF)

Drawing No. ZT02-18-001

One-Step Shielding and Jacketing Tubing, 2:1 Shrink Ratio, Polyvinylidene Fluoride Tubing

Shrink-N-Shield (PVDF) combines two proven technologies into a single, easy to install product for adding EMI shield protection to wire and cable bundles with diameters of 1/2" and less. Makes adding an EMI shield or secondary EMI shielding to wire and cable a snap. The product is comprised of a flexible, fire retardant, Polyvinylidene Fluoride tubing and Zippertubing's Z-3250-CN conductive cloth with outstanding shielding properties. The PVDF polymer jacket is a commercial variant of SAE-AMS-DTL-23053/18 tubing and the special formulation makes it more flexible than standard Mil-Spec tubing while still offering outstanding abrasion resistance. The product has an operational temperature range of -55 to 150°C. This product is supplied in four foot long sticks.
