What's special about Diesel Resistant Heat Shrink Tubing?
- Great for use in the aviation or automotive industries due to high resistance of fuels, fluids, and lubrication oils
- Protects wires, solder joints, and connectors from abrasion and damage from mechanical components
- Meets MIL-I-23053/16 specifications for all aspects
- Click for More Features
Diesel Resistant flexible polyolefin heat shrink tubing is used for protection of wires, solder joints, terminals, connections and components. It is highly resistant to aviation and diesel fuels, hydraulic fluids and lubrication oils. It also provides protection from abrasion and mechanical damage.
Diesel Heat Shrink is RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) Compliant (PDF)

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.
|ECTFE (Ethylene chlorotrifluoroethylene)||Halar||64%||Self Extinguishing|
|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|
|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|
