3 M™ EPS-200 is a 2:1 thin-wall tubing offering 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 skin tight 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 barrier. 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).
