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

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.
