When I bought my festool ro 150 sander (second hand) it had a bag of these tubes with orange stuff in them. I don’t think it is a festool product but I don’t know what it is. the plastic tubes are roughly 9” long and 1/2 inch in diameter. Any ideas?

Looks like some sort of static mixer for two part products. I’ve seen those used in anchoring bolts into an concrete slab with epoxy.

I thought it was some type of adhesive but I can’t find it on amazon. The ends are open to the atmosphere and there is only the orange stuff in the tube; no other stuff to mix.

There is no product in the tube. The orange stuff is just the plastic twisted up designed to mix the product as it comes out. Normally product comes in two separate tubes and disperses into the mixing tube which is what you have, the mixing tube.

Don is right.
It is a static mixing tube,probably for a solid surface adhesive. Cant tell if its for a corian setup or the other brands.

Based on the documentary MIB this is clearly an alien brain probe. An alternative use is as a static two part adhesive mixing nozzle.

I just learned something new.
The link you posted above shows that it delivers a mixing ratio of 10 to 1.
I never knew you could get different ratio’s thought they were always 1 to 1.
Thanks for posting that link.
