We stock several sizes of traditional 4130 Streamline Tubing (also referred to as “Aerotube” or “teardrop shaped tube”). Other sizes may be available upon request, as well as a set of new previously unavailable custom sizes that are listed below.

For several years, A.E.D. has offered the following previously unavailable sizes of custom streamline “aerotube.”
They are produced by roll-forming ROUND tubes through a series of rollers and dies. This process is cold-rolled, and no further processes (such as stress-relieving) are performed afterwards.
The round tubes can be 4130, Mild Steel, Aluminum, Titanium (“CP” Grade is preferred), or Stainless Steel.
Wall thicknesses can range from .032 – .065, based on availability of round material.
Minimum order is one length of the round material.
There are no tolerances on the finished dimensions. The major and minor are going to be close to the listings, but the type and grade of material are going to affect the finished results, as well as the wall thickness.
There are no material test reports (sometimes referred as “material certifications”) available for the finished roll-formed material. Test reports are available for most of the original round tubes at an additional cost. Be sure to discuss with your sales representative.

The smaller sizes tend to be more in an OVAL shape rather than the STREAMLINE shape. This is due in part to the smallness of the dimensions and the way the tooling operates.
None of these custom tubes are kept in stock.
They are produced to order only.
Minimum order is one length of ROUND material.
