Firstly we silde the blue marker on one end of the fluorescnt tube and then heat shrink material is cut to length and slide over the fluorescent tube.

We then place the fluorescent inside a pre warmed heated tunnel on a slow running speed.

It will take about a minute to go through the heated tunnel
