Give your custom Maker Pipe project a pop of color and personality with shrink wrap. Our shrink wraps are made with a UV Stable Formula, which protects your pipe project from sun and weather damage. Pick the color that best matches your project. The shrink wrap is easy to apply with a standard heat gun. If you are using connectors over a shrink wrapped portion of the pipe be sure to remove your friction bands from your connectors and save them for a build using raw pipe.
*Sold in 10' lengths
Fits 1/2" and 3/4" EMT Conduit
Made a couple of cabinet door drying racks for my shop and decided to use the shrink wrap for the conduit arms. After a little bit of trial and error with a heat gun (I had a lot to do and it was too slow for me), I decided to bring a large pot of water to a boil and submerge the conduit and shrink wrap. Worked like a charm and I was able to batch them out quickly.
I did not have the time or budget to take my custom bracket solution to a car shop for painting and while researching a solution that would work for holding threaded rod inside the pipe I discovered the maker pipe website. I have to say this is a great website too with some great ideas on how to use EMT pipe. It was on this site that I discovered the shrink tubing. I have to say I was not sure that this would work but when I use it on my EMT pipe it looked pretty good. The only down side is that I had some curved pipe and when shrinking that area I ended up with some overlap which created a vein like look on the surface. This was not terrible and with a little practice I got better at getting it to be less noticeable. I'm sure there are likely other this I could try to lessen the overlap but I did not really have the time trial and error a solution for that issue. On straight pipe it looks great, I may even try to double layer on the straight portion next time for an even smoother look. In summary I highly recommend this option as a solid alternative to painting EMT pipe.
Works great, better option than painting.
I've looked for a product like this for years to "dress up" pipe and dowel projects as well as add protection to custom parts. Other products would fail on color and have printing running the length because they were primarily made for insulation. This tubing is clearly made for looks, but of course, it will insulate fine too.
