Southampton, PA, United States, 2007/07/30 - Immediately available from NewAge® Industries is Nylotube® nylon tubing in semi-rigid and flexible grades, six colors, and inch and metric sizes. Applications include fluid and air transfer in a variety of industries.
NewAge® Industries announces the immediate availability of Nylotube®, its brand of nylon tubing, well suited for many applications. Nylotube is stocked in both semi-rigid and flexible grades, six colors, and inch and metric sizes to offer the best match for uses such as instrumentation, chemical transfer, food and beverage lines, compressed air, refrigerant and cooling systems, pneumatic controls, low-pressure hydraulics, fuel and oil transfer, and paint supply, among other applications.
Nylotube offers several advantages including:
• Low moisture absorption (1.4% maximum at 73°F)
• Excellent resistance to flex fatigue
• Tight dimensional tolerances
• Lightweight with excellent bend radii and pressure ratings
• Resistance to corrosion, abrasion, crushing, cracking, and brittleness
NewAge stocks Nylotube in the nylon-12 formulation and offers nylon-11 on a limited basis. The two versions offer similar performance, although some nylon-11 types are produced with FDA-approved ingredients, making the tubing safe for use with food contact surfaces. Nylon-12 is more often used in industrial applications and is somewhat less expensive. Both may be used with a wide range of temperatures (-90°F to 212°F) and attach easily with push-to-connect fittings, available from NewAge Industries in plastic or brass.
Nylotube is stocked in both inch and metric sizes in up to six colors (natural, black, red, yellow, blue, green). Inch sizes are offered in either semi-rigid or flexible grade, while metric dimensions are available in the flexible grade. Sizes range from 1/8” through 1” O.D. and from 4mm to 12mm O.D. Custom options include retractable coils, other sizes and colors, cut-to-length pieces, and heat-formed shapes.
