The creation of custom bonded tubing involves bonding two or more pieces of plastic tubing together to form a structure that provides a polished and professional look. Tubes can be bonded in virtually any configuration. Bonded plastic tubes are used by a wide range of industries including medical, dental, fluid power and robotics.
 
At Freelin-Wade, we provide custom plastic tube bonding services to match your exact specifications. Once you choose the custom bonded tubing that matches your project needs, we handle the rest.

Custom Bonded Tubing Advantages

Utilizing different colored bonded plastic tubes can create color-coded lines that aid in organization and simplify the tasks of line tracing and troubleshooting, which creates easier routing and installation procedures. Plastic tube bonding is also used to help eliminate tangling issues and for applications where tubing is installed in small or tight spaces or fitted within a component.

Types of Custom Plastic Tube Bonding

Tube bonding is used to create a part with properties not possible though conventional extrusion. This process involves melting or welding multiple tubes together through various technologies including thermal, RF, or infrared heat. Additionally, plastic tube bonding is typically done in one of three configurations with each providing varying degrees of bonding and versatility:
  • Permanent Tube Bonding: Offers the most durability and requires the use of cutting tools to separate the tubes.
  • Strippable Tube Bonding: A flexible option allowing individual tubes to be partially or fully separated by peeling them away. This type of bonding is our most popular, allows the most flexibility and is preferred for applications when push to connect fittings will be used.
  • Skip/Partial Tube Bonding: Uses an alternating pattern of bonded and unbonded sections of plastic tubing. This style of bonding is used for bonding nylon and polyethylene tubing.

Superior Quality Custom Bonded Tubing

Freelin-Wade has the capability to bond plastic tubes of any size or color. Our plastic bonded tubes are made using high quality extruded plastic tubing that has undergone multiple checkpoints to ensure accurate color and sizing. We offer a wide range of tubing in standard packaged lengths or we can custom cut tubing to your exact specifications.
 
We’ve developed and provide our own superior tube bonding in-house technology, that cannot be replicated by any other company. Our tube bonds are uniquely formulated so they can separate easily, without leaving any residue transfer on the outside of the tubes, which is critical for applications involving standard push-to-connect and other types of fittings.
