Low friction 1.68 mm ID PTFE tube suitable for pushrod outers on F3J & F5J models, discus launched glider and other small 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.

Great for bikes

If you are trying to fit new brake or gear cables to your road bike and the cables are internally routed then this product is the perfect dimensions to use as a guide / straw.

Excellent product, Item as described, fast shipping and delivery (to Croatia… now EU member). Stretching really easily and adjusting to desirable wire diameter. I prefer to oil the wire before inserting in tight stretched tube.

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.

Stretched this tube to fit a smaller size of Carbon/Boron rod. To be fair this is the first time I have used these tubes and I had some problems during the stretching. You need to make sure that you complete the stretch on the first attempt as pointed out in the PDF.

Bondable teflon

An excellent product and by far the easiest way to instal lightweight snakes.

Slide a wire inner into the tubing to allow the tubing to take up the shape of the fuselage between the servo and the control horn. Just add a few drops of cyano to the outside of the tubing to secure. The result is a virtual frictionless control run..

Pushrod outer

Excellent product which I have now used in two models.
Easily bonded to keep in place and free movement of the pushrod.
I will definitely use it again.
