IC/Component Tubes

Our plastic IC / component shipping and handling tubes are manufactured from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) with an antistatic surfactant treatment. Standard tubes for most package types are translucent and allow visual inspection of units within the tube. However, carbon-impregnated, black conductive tubes are available for all parts where required by device or use characteristics.

Tube profiles are designed with minimum clearance over the maximum package dimensions to reduce damage caused by movement of the device within the tube.

For some package types, tubes have "riding rails" on which the packages rest while in the tube. The rails protect the fragile leads from touching anything in the tube. PVC tacks, nylon tacks, or rubber plugs are used to retain the units. All tube wall thickness are between 0.025 inches to 0.040 inches.

The following products show tube dimensions, cross sections and quantity of packages per tube for most standard package types. Additional information on packages should be requested via our sales team.
