Custom Tubing - Options & Applications

Need Help?

Distinguishing between different tubing choices can be challenging, so we have outlined several options with example applications. Should you need additional instruction, or have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out and talk with one of our specialized staff.

Here at the Pexco family of companies, our custom capabilities cross a wide array of extrusion styles and resin types. We have a multitude of different resins available for our specialty industrial sector and our extrusion shapes include custom profiles, crosshead extrusions, co and tri-extrusions (or profiles with two or more resins), as well as heat shrink and non-shrink tubing.

Heat Shrink Tubing

Heat shrink tubing offers a layer of insulation, protection from harsh environments, and is often used for electrical application to protect cables, wires, and other items against abrasions. Done in minutes, heat shrink tubing can be easily applied using a heat gun, and if you need help with the process you can check out our Tubing and Sizing Measurement Guide. Are you an electrician or a mechanic? If you are in search of a general kit that includes popular diameter sizes for on the go needs, we’ve got those too.
