Instant color change for pvc pipe; intake and outtake etc.

Just wondering if anyone has ever tried to use heat shrink tubes instead of painting pipe with krylon fusion spray paint. Most of heat shrink tubes are made of polyolefin and seems to be food safe. You can buy tubes in different color and diameters. Instead of waiting for paint to dry, you just insert tube and apply heat, you will have an instant color coating over your pipe. I also think it will be much rigid then the paint coating.
