MATERIAL COMPARATIVE DATA SHEET


Items: Convolute and Filament Wound Tubing from The Gund Company
Description: Glass Epoxy Filament Wound Tubing
Filament wound tubes are wound from glass filaments dipped in epoxy resin. Once cured, the tube offers
excellent mechanical, electrical, and physical properties at elevated temperatures from 130oC to 180oC.
Glass Epoxy Convolute Wound Tubing
Convolute wound tubes take shape from woven fiberglass sheets impregnated with epoxy resin.
The material has the ability to maintain excellent mechanical, electrical, and physical properties
at elevated temperatures, from 130oC to 180oC.
Fabricated Parts: The Gund Company custom fabricates tube materials to the exact specifications and
drawings of our customers.
