The production of the Bundy pipes starts from a copper plated (coated) steel strip, which has copper plating on both sides to act as a solder to form the double wall structure of the Bundy tube by brazing process in high temperature.

The copper plated steel strips are slit from a wide steel sheet coil which is plated with copper on both sides.

By the slitting process, the narrow sheet is split into narrow strips of certain width. The width depends on the tube OD that is to be made. For example, for tube OD 6mm, the circle length of the tube is around 18.8mm, and the width of the strip needed to form a double wall tube is also doubled, that is 37.6mm. However, the actual width is slightly less according to the production line parameters.
