Heat Shrink Underwire Cover
Customers cutting metal underwires will need to seal the sharp cut tip. This Heat Shrink Underwire Cover is easy to apply with a heat gun and will properly seal the sharp end.
Certain bras may require a slightly shorter underwire to fit into the casing.
This product is sold in 12″ ( 30 cm) tubular pieces, which is enough to cover several underwires. It will be clear or white in colour and is thin enough to fit into the underwire casing.
If cutting an underwire to fit into an underwire casing, use our Heat Shrink Underwire Cover to properly seal the sharp, cut end. The Heat Shrink can be used to tip the metal, preventing the sharp end from poking through your underwire casing. Use for any garment that requires cutting underwires down to size. The heat shrink is used for bras, swimwear, and foundation garments.
How to Use:
Applying the Heat Shrink Spiral Boning Cover is simple and easy. It seals the end of your cut underwire, to prevent the sharp ends from poking through the garment. To apply, simply cut a 1″ (or shorter) length of the Heat Shrink tube. Place it over the end of the underwire, allowing just a tiny bit of the Heat Shrink tube to sit beyond the end. Make sure you are working on a non-flammable surface and using proper gloves and eye protection. While holding one end of your underwire, heat the other end (with the Heat Shrink) with a heat gun until the Heat Shrink tube shrinks around the end. This will give you a nicely finished underwire that will not poke through your underwire casing in your bra, swimsuit top, or foundation garment.
