Epoxy Tubing (CL)
General Purpose Fiberglass Epoxy Tubing.
The Alternative to Metal
Constructed of fiber reinforced thermoset epoxy resin, fiberglass epoxy tubing (CL) is a lightweight, high strength, corrosion resistant material that can replace carbon steel, chromed steel, stainless steel, aluminum or brass in a variety of applications.
. . . The Better Choice
75% Reduction in Weight
Onefourth the weight of steel or brass and 25 percent lighter than aluminum, fiberglass epoxy tubing is easier to handle, shortens assembly times and reduces the stress loads on component parts.
Superior Corrosion Resistance
Offers significant reduction in lifecycle costs due to its troublefree performance in chemical, highmoisture, salt water and other adverse environments.
Electrical Insulator
Prevents the flow of electric current.
Storage Capacity
We can stock products to meet your JIT, MRP, or KAN BAN requirements.
Transparent to xrays, radio and television transmission
Can be used as a radome because it is not affected by electromagnetic radiation.
Shape Stability and Impact Resistance
Retains its circular shape and will not dent like metals. Material impact strength is 40 lzod ftlbs.
Excellent Thermal Stability
With a very low coefficient of thermal expansion, fiberglass epoxy tubing operates efficiently from 50 °F to 250 °F.
NonMagnetic Material
Will not interfere with magnetic fields, making it ideal for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) applications.
