Barbed tubes are a great way to secure a plastic tube or to retain a tube in an epoxied assembly.
Barbs may be cut or ground on most regular and heavy walled tubes, and can also be machined onto a fitting depending on the application. Different types of barbs are also available.
Spiral cuts, similar to screw threads, are also a way to ensure a great bond with epoxy.
Because they are not as deep or closely pitched as a mechanical thread, we can add a spiral cut to regular and some thin wall tubes.
If you’re looking for a less expensive way to add friction to the outer diameter of your tube or fitting, grit blasting could be the right solution.
