Phenolic Paper Tubes

The aerospace industry is known for critical specifications requiring a high degree of customization. As a result, these companies often struggle to find suitable vendors. These factors led Air Components, a West Coast aircraft parts supplier, to contact Custom Paper Tubes. Custom Paper Tubes specializes in providing tubes that meet critical material and dimensional requirements

Air Components struggled to find a source of custom phenolic paper tubes for an electrical application.

Cutouts were required for the parts to fit properly and each tube needed a printed part number for proper identification. Our team worked with the customer to design a finished paper tube that was phenolic impregnated for strength and moisture resistance, then notched per their drawing. Our manufacturing processes allow complex parts, such as these, to be produced with precision tolerances in low volumes economically. Read the rest of this entry »
