Hot Bond thermally bonded tubing consists of joined lengths of reinforced and unreinforced tubing of similar material. The joining is done using heat, not leachable adhesives or solvents, for an orderly arrangement. Permanently bonded tubing cannot be separated without being cut. Strippable bond lets you peel back a section of bonded tubing without tools. Skip bond alternates sections of bonded tubing with unbonded tubing at specified intervals. Electric Hot Bond helps simplify electropneumatic connections by bonding electrical wire or light duty cable (customer supplied) to similar tubing materials—PVC-coated wire to PVC tubing for example.
Reinforced and unreinforced tubing of the same plastic material can be bonded together even when varying sizes are involved (some limitations exist). Two or more tubes up to a finished width of 2-1/8 in. can be thermally bonded, and prototyping is easy.
