Description Raychem Corporation Thermofit Marker Sleeves, c. 1980s-1990s. One roll of Thermofit Marker Sleeves (TMS). The product has a 2.5" wide nylon structure with multiple 2" x 0.375" rectangular strips that hold white pieces of heat-shrink tubing. Raychemer Jim Thompson notes that the tubing is partially shrunken down on the strips. The roll would be fed into a machine that would print labels on the outside of the tubes. Once marked, the tubes would be slid onto a wire in an electrical harness.
