Low friction 1.93 mm ID PTFE tube suitable for pushrod outers on gliders and other models. Also suitable for a large range of engineering and industrial uses.

This tubing is specially etched on the outside, making it easily bondable using many adhesives, thin CA being probably the best. Provides the lightest, easiest, most friction-free pushrod installations possible.

Can be stretched to 2 times the original length to reduce the weight per meter, and tune the inside diameter to be a perfect fit for the inner pushrod. Sold by the meter. Enter a quantity of 3 for a 3m roll.

Etched pushrod tube

Used with 1.5mm carbon pushrods in a Bubble Dancer carbon boom. Put the pushrod in the tube to make sure it is straight before running thin Zap from both ends results in a secure outer and very little pushrod slop.

Ideal for 1.5mm piano wire, won't accept 2mm wire.

Building a Le Fish aerobatic glider. Excellent
product and delivery service as usual. Perfect match for 1.5mm carbon pushrods.

Easy to use.

Excellent product which allows good support for carbon push-rods. Easy to attach to carbon booms with cyano.

Have now used it on four models, with excellent results and no push-rod slop.

Great product. Very easy to use. Had slight problem with initial adhesion, and as usual turned out to be Pilot Error...I needed to wipe down the surface with Isopropl C2H5OH. Keep curves smooth and bore free of grit and/or adhesive and they work very well.
