Thin-walled glass tubes

How thin can the wall of a glass tube be? And what outer diameter is then possible?<br/> There is no straightforward answer here. There are always limiting factors, such as the machine processing or the safe handling of thin-walled products.

The walls of our ultra-thin-walled capillaries are extremely thin in relation to the capillary diameter – so thin that they can be mechanically deformed to a certain extent. The ultra-thin capillaries also boast only the slightest of optical flaws and very low absorption for a broad radiation spectrum. This makes them very useful when it comes to the formation of optical measuring cells, for example.

Our currently standardized sizes can be found in the table below, for which a wall thickness of less than 0.1 mm can be assumed.<br/> Other dimensions can be requested at any time, we are always happy to help.
