Transparent heat shrink tubing with adhesive. What's any good, what's not, and what are you using?

This is not for electrical use, it will be used to seal a low pressure oil line so the adhesive needs to able to withstand oil.

Is that something that you've used, or just a "cut n paste"?

Jaycar sell it but I don't know if it stands up to oil.
I bought some elsewhere online, thanks.

I have not used these. Tube/line ID, pressure and temperature might be good info to share.
Thanks.

I would guess any talk of those being oil resistant is on the outside, not actually sealing oil from say a pipe from getting out.
I guess I'll find out, I'll mock up a test piece before I put it to actual use.

This. The adhesive is nothing more than hot glue.

If the wire or line flexes much, it will pull apart. I have to re-heat terminal covers on large cables every now and then, due to flex.

Not sure of the application, but why is it too hard, expensive to do it right the 1st time???
I use all kinds of heat shrinks, patches & wrap on sealers, and if humanly possible, I always try to fix the issue,
before risking failure when this patch fails???
I've even used 2-3 layers before when the customer was being an idiot and didn't want to pay to have it done right.

Good luck.
