Integrated circuit/Component Tubes

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 so allow for immediate visual inspection of units within the tube. However, carbon-impregnated, black conductive tubes are also available when required. 

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

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 can be used to retain the units. All tube wall thickness are between 0.025 inches to 0.040 inches.

Contact our sales team for tube dimensions, cross sections and the number of packages per tube for our standard package types.
