RAYCHEM HFT5000 heat-shrinkable fabric tubing from Tyco Electronics provides mechanical abrasion protection for hoses, pipes and wiring harnesses.

HFT5000 tubing consists of polyester and polyethylene, which combine to be highly flexible yet grip the substrate securely. The flexibility of this product allows its use in cumbersome applications such as bent hoses and other awkward shapes, the company says.

HFT5000 tubing shrinks at a 2:1 ratio, resists chaffing and other abrasion yet will not trap water, heat or humidity making it suitable for harsh environments. The product may be cut with standard industrial cutting equipment and is available in seven standard sizes from 12 mm to 70 mm (expanded diameter).
