Product Description
3 MEPS-200 is a 2:1 thin-wall tubing
o ffering the advantages of integral
adhesive-lined construction. The tubing
is made from a flame-retardant, flexible
polyolefin with a thin layer of special
thermoplastic adhesive. The heat-
shrinkable outer wall is selectively cross-
linked while maintaining the high flow
and excellent adhesion of the inner
sealant liner.
When heated in excess of 121°C
(250°F), EPS-200 rapidly shrinks to a
skintight fit, forcing the melted adhesive
lining to flow and cover the substrate.
The adhesive forms a flexible bond with
a wide variety of rubbers, plastics and
metals. Upon cooling, the adhesive
solidifies forming a permanent, non-
drying, flexible and water resistant
b a r r i e r. EPS-200 is rated for operation at
–55°C (–67°F) to 110°C (230°F).
Adhesive reflow will occur at
temperatures above 80°C (176°F).

Data Sheet
Typical Applications
EPS-200 offers convenient protection of
electronic components, wire splices or
bundling of wires. Automotive, truck and
marine wiring splices and connections
are quickly and easily protected from
harsh environments.
Shrink Ratio
EPS-200 Tubing has a 2:1 shrink ratio.
When freely recovered, the tubing will
shrink to 50% of its original diameter.
The recovered wall thickness of the
tubing is proportional to the degree of
r e c o v e r y.
Standard Colors
Black. Other colors and clear are
available subject to factory quotation.
The clear tubing is not flame retardant.
Standard Packaging
F o u r-foot lengths. Cut pieces and other
lengths (including spooled) are available
subject to factory quotation.
Ordering Information
Order EPS-200 Tubing by product name,
size equivalent to the expanded inside
d i a m e t e r , package type and color. Other
sizes are available subject to factory
quotation. Always order the largest size
that will shrink snugly over the item to
be covered.
Example: EPS-200, 3/8", 4 ft., black.
