    There is no need if you set up the coil and wick properly.

    Some atomizers are made of anodized aluminum or have an insulated wick hole to minimise the chance of shorts.

    I would hazard a guess that it would be a very bad thing to use heat shrink. Any plastic that reaches its plastic state through the simple application of a hair dryer would be venting gasses with every draw.

    The plastics used for insulation holes are usually PEEK, which reaches its plastic state at hundreds of degrees higher.
