Extruded Torlon® Seamless Tube

What is Torlon Seamless Tube? Torlon Seamless Tube is a tubular product form developed by Drake that eliminates the knit or weld lines common with other extruded plastic tubing. Typical tube set-ups involve molten plastic moving around or through a “spider die” before it joins again with other molten material prior to solidification. This situation can create weak regions in the final shape. Drake’s trade marked Seamless Tube ® has no such weak areas resulting in a homogenous cross section that stays round during and after machining. Fibers are oriented in a hoop direction maximizing the burst strength while reducing the CLTE in the radial direction.

Tolerances are shown in the columns on the right. Low tolerances are available on request . Cutting costs will be charged.
Standard length is 1220 mm (4 ft). Also available in 305, 610 and 914 mm.
Tube sizes over 7.6 cm diameter are available by 2.5 cm lengths with a minimum of 7.5 cm.
