A coil tube is a tube that is coiled and used to protect cabling and piping from scratches and other damage caused by direct contact of wiring and piping with surfaces. It is also used to unite wiring variations. A similar product, also known as spiral tubing, is used in the same way as a coil tube. In both cases, spiral tubing is used to protect wiring and piping by wrapping the spiral tubing around the wiring to prevent it from coming apart.
The most common use of coil tubes is for handling electrical wiring in and around power distribution boxes around information and control equipment. They are also used in the wiring of pneumatic tools such as air screwdrivers, which are used extensively on factory lines. Coil tubes are used in these applications because of its coiled shape and polyurethane resin, which makes it flexible, shrinkable, lightweight, and durable, and it is used for the treatment and protection of cabling and piping in all kinds of environments.
Coil tubes are made of polyurethane or other resin wire. They are mainly used in wiring processes where multiple electrical wires are bundled together to prevent wires from tangling and to identify the wire type. They are also used to protect various types of piping. Another similar product used in a similar manner is spiral tubing. Like coil tubing, spiral tubing is also widely used to wrap around a bundle of multiple wires to prevent wire dispersion and to protect the wires. The difference between coil tubing and spiral tubing is that coil tubing is made of resin wire coiled into a coil shape, whereas spiral tubing is made of flat polyurethane resin coiled into a spiral shape. However, the end use of spiral tubing is the same, i.e., to protect wires, pipes, and other objects from damage due to unevenness or direct contact with them by wrapping them around the wire or pipe.
