We need the following information in order to be able to help you with the correct heat shrinkable tube
Carefully measure the length and diameter of the roller. Also state the foundation of the roller, the operating temperature and, if applicable, the pressure and indicate how it will be used. With these data, we can supply the shrinkable tube in the correct size. You can also apply the tube yourself, using a hot air blower. Use a hot air blower with high exit velocity and temperature control between 20°C and 650°C.
Shrink the heat shrinkable tube by moving the hot air blower slowly from one side of the roller to the other. The roller should be turned during shrinking, to spread the heat gradually.
It is possible that the tube becomes slightly longer during shrinking. For shrink tubing with larger diameters we recommend the use of a straining ring, which will help to avoid wrinkles forming during the shrinking.
If you are not able to, or do not have sufficient experience to shrink the tube yourself, we would of course be happy to apply a roller cover for you. You would send the roller to us, together with the necessary data and we would apply the shrinkable tube for you.
We can also do this for you "on-site".
