Look for Heat Shrink Tubing, then use their filters to search for what you're looking for.

Yup. Synergy uses it on their CF tail push rods. It covers the rod where it goes through the guides, so it needs to be a bit slippery.

Special instructions for Teflon (PTFE) heat shrink tubing,

TFE Heat Shrink is the most difficult to recover due to its high shrink temperature. TFE shrink tubing must be heated to the
gel state 621°F (327°C) to completely recover. This can be recognized when the tubing changes from milky white to clear.
Because of the unique characteristics of this material, a controlled temperature oven will achieve the most reliable results –
it is difficult to consistently recover this product using a high-temp heat gun or similar heat source. These methods have a
tendency to overheat the tube in one area while other areas remain cool.
When recovering onto objects, use a temperature controlled oven set at 660°F – 680°F (349°C – 360°C) for approximately
10 minutes is recommended. It is best to place the product on a fiberglass mat or suspend as opposed to contactin

Interesting. I used a heat gun and it worked OK. I wondered why it didn't come out better. However, I think I will leave it as-is rather than locating a 660f degree oven to bake my push rod.

The OP did mention FEP as well.

Harsh Environment FEP Heat-Shrink Tubing

Shrink Ratio: 1.3 to 1
Shrink Temperature: 350° F
Temperature Range: -400° to +400° F
AMS-DTL-23053/11 (formerly MIL-I-23053/11), unless noted

FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene) tubing provides excellent abrasion and chemical resistance but doesn't require the high shrink temperature of PTFE. It is transparent
