The inner side of the HYCOT® tube is unique as well, exeptional clean from particles. 

 

All HYCOT® tubes are traceable can be script identified with dimension and Lot no. The HYCOT® tube is available in multiple colours.

An unique feature of the coating is the easy welding to plastic parts, e.g.brackets, connectors, protection hoses. It enables design of very cost effective systems based on simple and clean processes, without any need for further corrosion protection. Typical welding methods are ultrasonic, spin friction and induction welding.
