Materials: Choose Your Tubing’s Foundation
The foundation of any tubing product lies in the material, and we offer a vast array of choices:
Flexible Tubing- Best suited for applications needing versatility and malleability. Materials in this category are:
- Polyurethane Tubing: Known for its elasticity and resilience, it’s often used in pneumatic applications.
- Santoprene: A high-performing elastomer with the combined benefits of rubber and polypropylene.
- FPVC: Flexible Polyvinyl Chloride provides good chemical resistance and flexibility.
- LDPE (Low-Density Polyethylene): This is soft, pliable, and often used in squeeze applications.
- LLDPE: A variation of LDPE, it offers enhanced tensile strength.
- Nylon 6 (Nylon Tubing): Renowned for its robustness and resistance to abrasion and chemicals.
Semi-Rigid Tubing- These strike a balance between flexibility and strength, making them versatile for myriad applications:
- PP: Polypropylene offers resistance to most chemicals and provides a high melting point.
- HDPE: High-Density Polyethylene is known for its large strength-to-density ratio.
Rigid Tubing- The go-to for applications necessitating superior durability and robustness:
- Polycarbonate: Exceptionally tough and transparent, ideal for protective barriers.
- RPVC (PVC Tubing): Rigid Polyvinyl Chloride is durable and commonly used in construction.
- ABS: Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is impact-resistant and easy to mold.
- HIPS (high impact polystyrene): Common in product casings due to its sturdiness.
- Acrylic: Known for its clearness and weather resistance.
Tailoring Aesthetics: Colors and Opacity
The appearance of tubing can greatly influence its application:
- Transparent: Essential for medical devices or when internal visibility is a must.
- Translucent: With a frosted look, it offers a soft visual while maintaining some level of visibility.
- Opaque: When discretion is key and internal contents should remain concealed.
Remember, you can also opt for a unique hue, be it a stock PMS color or a tailored match to sync with your branding or requirements.
Diverse Tubing Shapes
Tubing isn’t confined to just cylindrical shapes. Depending on your application and aesthetic preference, the choices are vast.
- Round: The conventional shape, ideal for hoses and many standard applications.
- Oval: Offers a unique aesthetic and can often provide ergonomic advantages.
- Square & Rectangular: Often used in structural applications due to even weight distribution.
- Triangular: Less common but can offer unique design possibilities.
From intricate, slender tubes to robust, large ones, Plastic Extrusion Tech caters to tubing up to a 12” outside diameter, ensuring you have the perfect fit for your needs.
Adding the Final Touches
Your tubing can be further personalized with a variety of extra details.
- Cut to Length: Choose how you want your tubing: in-line, on spools, or coiled.
- Slitting: Creating longitudinal cuts for varied applications.
- Hole Punching: Allows for easy fixture or varied design possibilities.
