3M™ Cold Shrink tubes are a series of open-ended, tubular rubber sleeves, which are factory expanded and assembled onto a removable core. They are supplied for field installation in this pre-stretched condition. The core is removed after the tube has been positioned for installation over an inline connection, terminal lug or other similar applications, allowing the tube to shrink and form a waterproof seal.

3M™ Cold Shrink are cold applied and therefore they are quicker, easier and safer to install than heat shrink alternatives, and they are also ideal where hot work permits are difficult to obtain.
