The tubes with the diameters of 1.2 and 1.6 mm are actually wires that are encased in plastic and therefore solid. Wire inserts are available for the tubes with diameters of 2.4 and 3.2 mm. After the wire is inserted into the tube it can then be easily bent into the desired shape without the help of any other implements.
The ABS tubes - formerly known under the trade name Butyrate - are great for use in architectural model making. With the aid of a wire insert (BRASS ROUND ROD) together with small pieces of tube serving as distance pieces, reinforced steel framework can be represented. The small diameter tubes with a wire insert can be easily cut with a side cutting pliers. Tubes with larger diameters should be cut with a fine-toothed saw. Gluing can be done nicely using RUDERER plastic glue.
Along with the panels, films, micro-strips, profile strips or textured sheets made from polystyrene or ASA, these tubes are a standard component of architectural model making. Because of their excellent quality despite extremely thin walls, the tubes produced by the American company EVERGREEN are particularly noteworthy. Evergreen products can be recognized because their dimensions are not a rounded number (for example 2.4 mm diameter).
You should be very careful when cutting these thin walled tubes: first score the tube with the cutter, and then break it off. In model making it is normally glued with either DICHLORMETHANE or some other solvent.
This ABS round tube can be used as an alternative for PS round tubes. Fine tubes made of BRASS, ALUMINIUM or COPPER can be found under the heading „Metal“.
