CUSTOM POLYMER CAPILLARY TUBING

Need a different material or different size we may be able to help

1) Typical project using standard ratios and/or materials

Example lead time- For standard ratios (inner diameter/outer diameter) using a standard material, you specify a ratio and an outer diameter and you can have your custom capillary tubing in typically two weeks or less. Contact us to discuss your project.

Example costs for a "typical project"

  • There is a set-up of fee of $550-$900
  • Then per meter depending upon volume and size.
  • No minimum length, order as much or as little as you want.
  • Larger volume discounts available
  • Typically minimum outer diameter 25 microns
  • Typically maximum outer diameter of 2500 microns
  • Larger and smaller outer diameter, contact us for details.

2) Other ratios, geometric shapes (cross-section), or materials

Please contact us to discuss your requirements. We can most likely make what you want.

Our processes can be adapted to many variables to provide you with a capillary tubing suited for your application. Email or call us directly at 360-573-6500
