Plastic tube refers to a lightweight engineering material, featuring an extruded body and providing application versatility with round, square and rectangular form variants. Plastic tubes vary in diameter, length, wall thickness, size, and colour. They are primarily used in industrial as well as commercial applications.
Depending on the type of plastic material, plastic tubes can be categorised into several types. The most commonly used plastic tubes include:
Acrylic tube: These types of plastic tubes are lightweight and offer great strength, making them ideal for indoor as well as outdoor applications. They are also equipped with additional properties like good UV resistance, chemical resistance, and weathering resistance.
PEEK tube: These types of plastic tubes are made from high-performance polymer plastic that provides excellent chemical and high-temperature resistance.
Laminated plastic tube: These types of plastic tubes feature several layers of filler materials, offering a robust material for light-duty applications.
Plastic tubes are used in a wide range of applications, including:
