Plastruct TBFS-10 Fine Line Round Tubing 5/16 (7.9mm) In white. Approx 14 15/16" (380mm) long From The Plastruct Web Site: This item is made from Styrene (also known as Hi-Impact PolyStyrene) is the most commonly used plastic in molded plastic kits (Model Railroad, Automobile, Airplane and Ship). For that reason, we have chosen Styrene as the medium in our New FineLine Structural model parts for compatability in kit-bashing. It may be combined with wood, metal and other plastics using special glues or cements. Styrene has a tendency to be brittle, especially after lengthy U.V. exposure or painting. It is easily warped by solvents, so care must be taken when cementing flat sheets for walls, and reinforcement bracing is recommended. When constructing closed tanks or structures, venting is recommended to allow the inside and outside temperatures to equalize. Styrene has excellent forming characteristics and bonds rapidly and permanently. Styrene plastic cuts easily using the "scribe and break" method. Only use Enamel, Alkyd Oil, Latex or Acrylic paints specified for Styrene plastics.
