Spiral Wound Tubing

Spiral Wound Tubing: One Size Doesn’t Fit All

Electrolock understands that your product’s needs are unique.

That’s why we take an engineering approach to find a custom solution for you and take the time to ask the right questions.

  • How will the tube be used?
  • What are the performance requirements?
  • How will the tube be installed?
  • How much does it need to cost?

From complex laminates to shrinkable spiral wound tubes, we are certain we can make a tube that will fit your needs, and we’ll get it done within budget. Producing high-quality solutions for our customers is what we do best.

Our engineering team thrives on solving complex challenges!

We’re with you every step of the way.

We take the time to ask the right questions: How will you use the tube? What are the performance requirements? Electrical, Thermal, Mechanical, Chemical. How will it be installed? What does this tube need to cost? Keep reading to learn more about our approach.

A final solution you can count on.

Electrolock uses our extensive background in materials to custom design a tube to fit your application and budget. We will consider a wide range of materials that will help accomplish your goals, all in a tried and true spiral wound tube.

How Will You Use the Tube?

What are the performance requirements?

  • Electrical (voltage breakdown, PDIV)
  • Thermal (operating temperature, flame rating, thermal conductivity)
  • Mechanical (tensile strength, tear strength, puncture resistance, adhesion, stiffness, wall thickness)
  • Chemical (resistance to ATF, solvents, resin compatibility, acids)

How Will the Tube Be Installed?

Incorporating the tube into your process should not be overlooked.  It is important to your success to have parts that work in your process and production floors.  Electrolock can supply cut to length parts, long lengths, flared ends, sealed end caps, notched cuts, angled cuts, punched holes, and continuous length tubing.  These special configurations can sometimes be used in combination to enhance our customer’s products.

Electrolock can provide large continuous length tubing in rolls that are either Layflat or spiral wound constructions.  These can be easily incorporated into your automated production equipment to save you time and money.

What is the Budget for This Tube

After working with your engineering group to answer these questions, Electrolock uses our extensive background in materials to custom design a tube to fit your application and budget.  Every customers budget is as different as the application.  Meeting your cost requirements is as important as meeting your performance requirements.  We take this into consideration when selecting your insulation materials.

Materials like PET (polyester), Kapton® (polyimide), Nomex® (aramid paper), aluminum, fiberglass, felt, vulcanized fiber, and Pyrodox® mica can all be considered options to create a tube.  We often use a combination of materials to meet or exceed your performance requirements and stay within budget.  A variety of dimensions are also available to provide the best solution.

Building success from the inside out.

A Final Solution You Can Count On

Every manufacturing system consists of manufacturing methods, materials, operators, and equipment. How these system components work together can make a huge difference in the quality of the final product your company produces.

When searching for a spiral wound tube, we can all agree that every application is different. So why compromise on performance by limiting your options to off the shelf products?

Shrink

Spiral Wound Tubing can be made with heat shrinkable polyester or polymide films.

Non-Shrink

Spiral Wound Tubing can be made with non-shrink thermally stable films.

Conductive

Electrolock offers spiral wound tubing that is conductive or semi-conductive.

High Cut-Through

Spiral Wound Tubing can be produced with high cut through resistance products such as Kevlar or Glass.

Aramid/Nomex®

Nomex® provides thermal and electrical insulation up to 220°C.

Polyimide/Kapton®

Polyimide films offer high dielectric strength and thermal performance up to 230°C.

PET

Polyester films provide high dielectric strength but are limited to about 130°C thermal applications.

PEEK

PEEK Films are a good compromise between Polyester and Polyimide, offering high dielectric strength and good thermal performance.

Ultem®

Ultem® offers good dielectric and thermal performance up to 170°C.

Fiberglass

Fiberglass provides strong reinforcement, low thermal coefficent of expansion, and very high thermal performance up to 600°C.

Felts

Felts offer low thermal conductivity and can be made with Glass, Nomex, or Polyester.

Foils

Copper or Aluminum foils are available in a variety of thicknesses.

Notched

Cut outs and or notches can be fabricated in the tubes.

Formed

Tubes can be thermoformed to produce a shoulder or end cap.

Cut to Length

Precise cut to length fabrication is possible.

Thin/Thick

Very thin walls of less than 0.003" are possible or thick wall constructions up to 0.120" are available depending on the materials selected.

Colored

Tubes can be flood coated with colors.

Sealed

Tubing can have heat sealed end caps.

Sonic Welded
