The most common HardTubes are clear and transparent. In addition, HardTubes made of brass and carbon fibre have also established themselves. Alphacool now offers the ice pipe as part of its ice cream products. The surface looks like ice and feels like ice. Slightly rough but smooth.
The ice pipe has a lasting effect on the appearance of the system. The actual effect is best seen after filling the system. The water looks like frozen water ice. When the circuit is illuminated with LEDs, the reflection of the individual LEDs is clearly visible with clear HardTubes, not so with the ice tubes. Here the light is scattered and you get a much smoother and better illumination.
Note:?Like all Acrylic HardTubes, the ice tube can be bent with the appropriate bending tool. However, the appearance of the ice pipes at the bends changes noticeably and no longer corresponds to the original appearance.
You can create a further effect, but if you want to keep the ice-tube look, you should use appropriate connectors for bends.…more
