Tubeway manufacture and stock lightweight white PVC tubing, primarily to be used as electrical trunking, keeping cables safe and tidy. In addition to the stock hollow tubes, we can also supply:
- from stock, as below,
- a production quantity from one of our other round tube tools listed below
- made to order production of split plastic tubes, which resemble tubing with a section missing, typically used as clip-over covers and sheaths for round metal tubes, solar tubes or similar
- from a new tool, to your exact specification.
For more information or to discuss any project in detail, please contact us with your Rigid Plastic Tube requirements.
PLASTIC TUBES - Made To Order
For all but the most straightforward plastic tubing requirements, it can be beneficial to have a production run. This can be very cost effective, it allows the plastic tubes to be cut to non-standard lengths, and be made in one of our standard colours or a specific colour match.
We hope the additional tooling details below are of interest, but please remember that we can cut new tooling should it be required.
Round plastic tubing is a familiar profile, with outside diameter and wall thickness being the two variables. The shape of the tube is maintained immediately after extrusion by passing through a vacuum. Split plastic tubing is slightly different, as it is not a hollow section and so does not use a vacuum. It is commonly used as a snap on cover for other round products, e.g. skid frame chair bases.
