What is Silicon core tube
Silicon core pipe is a new type of composite pipe with silicone solid lubricant on the inner wall. It has good sealing performance, chemical resistance and low engineering cost. It is widely used in optical cable communication network systems such as highways and railways. HDPE silicon core tube is a new type of composite pipe with silicone solid lubricant on the inner wall, referred to as silicon tube. It is synchronously extruded and compounded by three plastic extruders. The main raw material is high-density polyethylene, and the core layer is the solid lubricant silicone with the lowest friction coefficient. Widely used in optical cable communication network system.

The silicon core layer on its inner wall is a solid, permanent lubricant;
The silicon core layer on the inner wall is squeezed into the high-density polyethylene pipe wall synchronously, and the entire inner wall of the pipe is evenly distributed, without peeling off and detaching, and having the same life as the silicon pipe;
The silicon core layer on its inner wall has the same physical and mechanical properties as high-density polyethylene;
The friction characteristics of the silicon core layer on the inner wall remain unchanged, and the cable can be extracted repeatedly in the pipeline
The silicon core layer on its inner wall does not react with water, and the pipeline can be washed with water after an accident.

Wall thickness: The minimum wall thickness of the silicon tube is 2mm, and the maximum is 6mm. It can also be produced if the wall thickness is special. The most commonly used thickness is 3.0mm, 3.5mm, 4.0mm.
Length: The standard disk length of the 50/42 silicon tube is 1500m, the 40/33 silicon tube is 2000m, and the 32/26 silicon tube is 3000m. If the customer has special needs, it can be shipped in a longer (arbitrary) length under the conditions of convenient transportation and operation.
Color: You can choose any solid color, or you can inlay a vertical stripe of other colors on a solid color silicon tube.
