Limiting Oxygen Index (LOI)
The ratio of how much oxygen - as compared to other gases - needs to be present in the air surrounding a particular material in order for that material to burn. The fact that Earth's normal atmospheric air contains around 21% oxygen is used a reference point when materials are classified into burn categories that are based on Limiting Oxygen Index. Substances that are combustible in air containing less than 21% oxygen are considered flammable, while those that burn in the range of anything greater than 21% but less than 28% are typically labeled "slow burning". Any material with an LOI that exceeds 28% is classified as self-extinguishing.

In the table below, you'll find a list of polymers commonly found in our heat shrink tubing and braided sleeving products, along with their LOIs and the burn categories each falls into.


MATERIAL ALTERNATE NAME LOI CATEGORY
ECTFE (Ethylene chlorotrifluoroethylene) Halar 64% Self Extinguishing
Nomex N/A 28% Slow Burning
Nylon 6:6 N/A Ranges fron 24-29% Slow Burning to Self Extinguishing
PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) Mylar (film), Dacron (fiber) Ranges from 21-34% Slow Burning to Self Extinguishing
Polyethylene (PE) N/A 17% Flammable
Polypropylene (PP) polythene (in the UK) 17% Flammable
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Teflon 95% Self Extinguishing
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) N/A Ranges from 45-49% Self Extinguishing

    Comments about 1/2 in PVC Heat Shrink -per FT:

    I use heat-shrink to make decorative objects, so I am always on the lookout for new colors. These products come in some interesting colors (especially glow in the dark), but the material is much more rigid and difficult to work with than other heat-shrink tubes I've used in the past. Whereas most heat-shrink is somewhat flexible and rubbery, this stuff is more of a shell-like plastic. Consequently, it is more difficult to cut in precise ways because it doesn't lie flat, and it is difficult to get long sections of it over something like a curved wire, for example.

        I was disappointed by the lack of glow offered by this tubing. I used a small 5" section on the end of a rod, and it never did absorb the light enough to glow. I tried using different lighting sources, all for naught.

              Comments about 1/2 in PVC Heat Shrink -per FT:

              I was so excited to get such an unusal product. I used the luminous PVC heat shrink in my clear acrylic computer case along with some blue glow-in-the-dard braided sleeving to organize the wires and improve airlow. On wires that had small connectors, I was able to use the heat shrink on their entire length. It looked awsome and the glow is really bright. It should be used in nightclubs!

                  Comments about 1/2 in PVC Heat Shrink -per FT:

                  I purchased the luminescent heat shrink tubing about four months ago. Instead of using this tubing in the traditional methods, I decided to use this heat shrink in an unusual way; all form and no function.

                  For my California style closet I decided to accent some of my shelves with a glow-in-the-dark lining. I did not want to use any adhesive products, so the heat shrink was ideal. I loosely formed different shapes with the tubing prior to shrinking it. After applying some heat with a heat gun, all the kinked bends worked themselves out of the tubing but the heat shrink retained the basic shapes I had formed.

                  Presto, instant glow-in-the-dark art for my closet. Four months later the tube still glows and it has retained the same shapes.
