Special Plastic Tubes

TP Extrusions has tooling available for a variety of unusual and non-standard tubes which have been designed for particular applications. Please see the details and drawings below for specifics. If the profile shape, dimensions or features you are interested in are not included, we will be able to make tooling for you - contact us to discuss and for Plastic Tube tooling details.

Note that apart from some of the oval tubes, these profiles are not stocked but are run to order and subject to minimum order quantities. This enables us to cut to lengths, to your instructions, of up to 4m.

If you require round, square, rectangular or flexible tubing, click through.

Oval Tubes

Oval tubes have several standard uses, such as Electrical Conduit and athletics Hurdle Rail bars. It is possible in some cases to run with different wall thicknesses, as well as a choice of colour and plastic material.

Ribbed Tubes

These tubes are also known as fluted tubes, towel or grab rails, and can be used in conveyor belt type applications. It is possible for some ribbed tubing to be run in different wall thicknesses to suit your requirements.

Split Tubes

There are two types of split tube, which are made using different methods.

a) Unless specified, the split tubes listed in the table below are made from dedicated tooling and resemble a tube with a small piece missing. Unlike hollow tubes, these are not made using a vacuum collett and cannot be made to variable wall thicknesses. They can be used as clip-on covers and sheaths.

b) It is also possible to make split tubing by extruding a hollow tube onto a blade which creates the split. For practical reasons this requires that the wall of the tube is thin (max 1mm), but means that many of the round tube sizes can be split during extrusion. For more information on this method please contact us and for tube sizes see our Round Tubes pages.
