Explanation: As an old radio mechanic,I can tell you this is what's used to seal a solder ot even a simple wrap of at least two wires. It's rubber tubing that is slid over joined wires (before they are connected, of course!) and then it is heated. THat's where the shrinking comes in. It provides insulation and protection.
