Here you go ....

Been using this stuff for over 10- years and have had ZERO failure....I 
use the "UV/adhesive Type" ..and seal the ends with "Loctite Epoxy 
Repair Putty....
About 2 inches from the join (Connector or...??) I make a bead of the 
epoxy around the wire/co-ax ... then slide the tubing over the epoxy the 
connector and the epoxy ...then nead the tubing into the epoxy on both 
ends..then heat gun shrink!!!
