Caulking tubes made of cardboard are used to dispense caulking material, which seals joints and seams in construction applications. The caulking tubes are often lined with aluminum foil or kraft paper and spiral wound to increase the holding strength of the tube. The tube is typically inserted into a caulking gun and equipped with a plastic nozzle or spout and a plastic cap at the end.
Calking tubes are used in caulking guns for the administration of industrial adhesives and sealants. When pressure is applied to a caulking gun’s trigger-like handle, a plunger forces the caulking out of the end of the tube in a controlled fashion. Some caulking tubes are already pressurized, and therefore do not require the assistance of a gun in order to apply caulk. Caulking tubes are mainly used in the construction industry to aid in sealing appliances in kitchens and bathrooms, tiling and cracks in window and door frames and along the joining of walls.
