Non-extruded tubes

are becoming an increasingly popular choice for applications that require small diameter tubes with thin walls made from low durometer materials. While extruded tubes are an excellent solution for applications that require stiff material or high wall thickness, they can be challenging to produce in small sizes with thin walls. This is where non-extruded tubes come in.

Medibrane offers a range of non-extruded tubes with a wall thickness that starts at just 15 microns and diameters ranging from 100 microns to 25 mm. These tubes are made using a process called tube drawing, where a larger diameter tube is drawn through a smaller diameter die to reduce its diameter and increase its length. This process allows for the creation of very small diameter tubes with thin walls, which can be difficult to achieve through extrusion.

One of the benefits of non-extruded tubes is that they offer better control over wall thickness, which is important for applications where precision is critical. They also have a smoother surface finish, which can be beneficial for applications where the tube will come into contact with other components or materials.

Non-extruded tubes are used in a variety of industries, including medical, pharmaceuticals, and biotechnology. In these industries, precise and accurate delivery of fluids and gases is essential, and non-extruded tubes can provide the necessary control and accuracy. Overall, non-extruded tubes are an excellent choice for applications that require small diameter tubes with thin walls made from low durometer materials.
