Although the name suggests a sense of complexity, convoluted tubes actually have a straightforward mission in life — to provide premium protection.
Convoluted tubes are corrugated, protective casing designed to keep wire harnesses, tubing, hoses and cable safe from harsh, external or environmental elements.
Used mainly in the automotive, construction, telecommunications and transportation industries, convoluted tubes provide abrasion resistance against friction, perforation and vibration.
Designed also to be liquid resistant to chemicals, mechanical fluids and weather precipitation, convoluted tubing is superior in durability while remaining lightweight.
Daburn Electronics & Cable specially engineered PTFE convoluted tubing as an unmatched ideal in the tubing industry when it comes to offering industrial tubing excellence for automotive, biomedical, electrical, robotics and water treatment applications.
As a quick tip, always aim for convoluted tubing that is around 20% larger than the cable bundle or hose assembly to ensure maximum flexibility with minimal installation worries. Excellent Dielectric Insulation Properties
Take comfort in knowing convoluted tubing offer three major benefits that go beyond conventional tubing solutions:
Flex without the kinks
Daburn convoluted tubing offers biocompatibility, an added bonus to its creation of USP Class VI approved material.
The tubing enhanced flexibility is due to the manufacturing of a greater number of convolutions per inch. More convolutions equal more bending, which allows the tubing material to flex minus the kinks around tight bend diameters.
Convoluted tubing can take the heat
With the ability to function at a continuous operating temperature range of 270°C to 260°C, Daburn convoluted cables are designated as UL 94 V0 Flame rated while not supporting combustion.
Corrugated tubing also plays hard to get
PTFE convoluted tubing resists even in the toughest applications. Its lubricity factor allows for a very low co-efficient of friction. Common acids, bases and solvents are no match against convoluted tubing because of its outstanding chemical resistance.
