All heat-shrink tubing is not the same. As medical electronics grow more complex, choosing the right product for your application is becoming a critical design decision.


An upcoming MED Webcast, "How to Choose the Right Heat-Shrink Tubing for Your Application," sponsored by Arrow Electronics and TE Connectivity, aims to help medical electronics designers navigate that decision. The free Webcast will cover:

  • The landscape of the medical heat-shrink tubing industry, including history, technologies and chemistries, manufacturing capabilities, and future trends.
  • Applications driving the market for medical heat-shrink tubing.
  • New heat-shrink tubing products and how to use them in your designs.

Leading the discussion will be three experts from TE Connectivity, which designs and manufactures products to connect and protect power and data flow.
