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? Electrolock understands that your company’s needs are unique. That’s why we take an engineering approach to find a custom solution for you.
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?
Electrolock uses our extensive background in materials to custom design a tube to fit your application and budget. Materials like PET (polyester), Kapton ® (polyimide), Nomex ® (aramid paper), aluminum, fiberglass, felt, vulcanized fiber, and mica can all be considered options to create a tube.

Spiral Wound Tubing can be produced with high cut through resistance products such as Kevlar or Glass.
Polyimide films offer high dielectric strength and thermal performance up to 230°C.
Polyester films provide high dielectric strength but are limited to about 130°C thermal applications.
PEEK Films are a good compromise between Polyester and Polyimide, offering high dielectric strength and good thermal performance.
Fiberglass provides strong reinforcement, low thermal coefficent of expansion, and very high thermal performance up to 600°C.
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.
