Hold a pad or other item behind the shrink tubing to avoid heat escaping.
Hint: Suitable setting of heat gun 951 2777 Hot-air gun See: Tools and Equipment/951 2777 Hot Air Gun , air distribution switch in position 2 and
potentiometer for temperature setting in position between 2 and 3.
Heat the sleeve using the hot air gun 951 2777 Hot-air gun See: Tools and Equipment/951 2777 Hot Air Gun and suitable jet kit. Heat the shrink tubing
rapidly to avoid heat escaping. It is very important that the shrink tubing is correctly shrunk around the wire. It should be tight at both ends.
