Current Laminated Tubing is made of thermosetting resins (phenolic, epoxy, silicone or melamine) combined with various base materials such as paper, cotton cloth or glass cloth. Convolutely wound under high pressure and heat, the resulting product is a dense homogeneous material that can be machined, polished, painted and printed on. Laminated tubing is easy to saw, drill, tap, thread, and punch with ordinary tools. The material has excellent electrical insulating qualities. It's lighter, more durable and more economical than metal in many instances.
In the past decades, literally hundreds of applications for our tubing have been employed. The potential for new space age applications is even more exciting.
Current Laminated Tubing is available in lengths from 36" to 48" depending on grade; diameters from 3/32" i.d. to 6.000" i.d.; wall thickness from .020" to 1.000" depending on diameter of the tube. Larger sizes quoted on request. Finishes include ground, polished, painted or lacquered. Tolerances are to NEMA standards ... for special tolerances, please contact our sales office.
