Welded Tubing / Bonded Tubing
Duke Extrusion utilizes specialized tube bonding equipment to create welded tubing. This process can be used to produce tubing with varying stiffness along its length by bonding materials of different durometers together using butt joints or lap joints.
Laser welded plastic tubing can also provide for attachment to luers or other fittings using adhesives. Plastic tube bonding can also be used to attach balloons or other implements at the end of the tubing.
Pull values can be obtained for bond strength, and upon the characterization of the product design, process qualification and validations can be performed so that product may be certified to those specific requirements.
