Air Purification – Co-extruded tubing is well-matched for air purification systems where layers can be tailored to provide the best barrier to prevent permeation out of into a system; this can then be combined with other properties which you choose based upon the other co-extrusion layer of your finished product.
Analytical – Co-extruded tubing has found significant use in analytical settings which often prefer colored, striped, or other marked tubing for identification of fluid contents.
Electrical Dissipation – In the automotive industry, there is heightened interest in co-extruded tubing for electrical wiring and cabling to protect and add strength while also providing desired dielectric properties, whether for conductance or non-conductance.
Fiber Optics – As furcation tubing (jacketing), co-extruded tubing provides outer layer protection such as impact resistance with an inner co-extruded layer which supports fiber optic transmission.
Medical Devices – Co-extrusions have become a popular way to adjust the properties of a tube through the combination of multiple layers of resins with different properties such as color or striping, for example: a radio-opaque stripe on the outer layer combined with chemical resistance for the inner layer.
Semiconductor – In this industry, where conductance is of paramount importance, a co-extrusion can provide superior insulation characteristics coupled with the additional traits you require for your specific operating environment, such as the ability to handle extreme corrosives on the interior of the tubing.
Water Purification – Chemical inertness of the contact (inside diameter) layer is of prime importance in this application. With a co-extrusion, chemical resistance can be combined with outer layers to impart such characteristics as impact and abrasion resistance to minimize the chances of water line breakage.
