How to Properly Use The End Caps

1. Choose the Correct Size

Select a cap that fits snugly over your cable diameter.

2. Prepare the Surface

Clean the cable end to remove any dirt or debris, ensuring a clean area for application.

3. Position the Cap

Slide the heat shrink end cap onto the cable, covering the exposed end completely.

4. Apply Heat

Use a heat gun to evenly heat the cap, which will shrink it tightly around the cable and activate the internal adhesive for a secure seal.

5. Cool and Inspect

Let the cap cool, then check the seal to ensure it’s tight and complete without any gaps.

Cable & Wire End Caps Specifications

2:1 Shrink Ratio

Our wire caps are manufactured with a shrink ratio of 2:1, guaranteeing a snug fit around cut cable ends to ensure maximum protection against moisture and other warehouse elements.

EVA Adhesive

All of our heat shrink end caps are equipped with an EVA adhesive lining, which means you can count on a great fit every time. The minimum shrink temperature starts at 176ºF.

UV Resistant

Our Heat Shrink End Caps are made with elastic compounds that are resistant to UV light and can withstand long-term exposure to sunlight in yard storage applications—without fear of cracking or seal failure.

Abrasion Resistance

Our end caps provide a robust environmental defense for cables, protecting them from abrasions and other potential hazards. This enhances the longevity of your wires and cables.

Cracking Resistance

The superior flexibility of our end caps allows them to conform effortlessly to various cable shapes and sizes. They’re engineered to withstand environmental stress and resist developing cracks.

Our Range of End Caps

At Rainbow Rubber & Plastics, we understand the diverse needs of businesses across various industries, which is why we’ve developed a comprehensive range of end caps designed to meet those needs effectively.

Heat Shrink End Caps: Ideal for applications requiring a tight, secure fit, these end caps shrink to conform to the shape of the cable or wire when heat is applied, ensuring a durable seal against environmental factors.

Cold Shrink End Caps: Perfect for settings where heat application is impractical, these caps are pre-stretched on a removable core and naturally contract around cables once the core is removed, offering a reliable seal without the need for heat.

Heat Shrink Tubing: This versatile option can cover longer lengths of wires or cables, providing insulation and protection with the same heat-activated sealing properties as our heat shrink end caps.

Options: To cater to specific project requirements, we offer our end caps in standard solid black, ensuring a professional finish. Additionally, end caps with valves are available upon request to accommodate various operational needs.

Our end caps are a testament to our commitment to providing high-quality, reliable solutions for cable and wire protection, serving businesses effectively for many years.

FAQ About Cable & Wire End Caps

What are the key benefits of using Heat Shrink End Caps?

Heat Shrink End Caps protect electrical connections from moisture, UV rays, and abrasions, enhancing cable durability and reliability. They are especially useful in sectors like telecommunications and automotive manufacturing where cable integrity is critical.

How do I choose the right size and type of Heat Shrink End Cap?

Choose a cap that fits snugly over your cable diameter. Opt for Heat Shrink Caps for areas requiring thermal fitting and Cold Shrink Caps where heat cannot be applied. For longer cables, consider Heat Shrink Tubing for extended coverage.


What steps should I follow to properly install Heat Shrink End Caps?

To install, first ensure the cable end is clean. Then, slide the cap over the cable, apply heat evenly until it shrinks securely, and allow it to cool. Finally, inspect the installation to confirm a tight, gap-free seal.
