In some other projects, the heat shrink sleeve proves most appropriate. This is so especially in case of industrial situations where the pipes are continuously exposed to extreme heat and corrosion. The sleeve acts as a protective cover and ensures the longevity of the pipes. In industrial setups where the temperatures rises dramatically, say for example, in an oil refinery there are chances that the pipes lose shape on getting overheated and this way the entire pipeline can be destroyed. The sleeve also protects the pipes from being corroded by water or dirt in their day-to-day use. Another application of the heat shrink sleeve is its use in the underground pipes which have to bear tremendous pressure of weight. The sleeve provides added strength to the pipes and ensures that the heavy pressure causes lesser damage to the pipes.
