This flexible, non-toxic tubing is suitable for a wide range of manufacturing operations. It is made of ether-based polyurethane, which is nonconductive and has good chemical and UV radiation resistance. It is also resistant to oil, weather, ozone, heat, and electricity. It has a Shore A Hardness rating of 85 for resistance to abrasion and tearing. It has an operating temperature range of -90 to +175 degrees F. It meets FDA standards for use with wet and fatty food contact surfaces and National Sanitation Foundation NSF-61 standards for use with potable water. This flexible transparent tubing is suitable for use in granular transfer lines, grease lines, insulating sleeves, metering pumps, oxygen and other gas lines, and robotics, among other applications.
Plastic tubing is used to transfer liquids, air, or solids, and it is characterized by a round, rectangular, or square shape and a hollow center. Plastic tubing is crimp-resistant and varies in bend radius (flexibility), chemical resistance, wall thickness, durometer hardness, and temperature and pressure handling abilities. The clarity of plastic tubing may be transparent (clear), translucent (semi-clear), or opaque (solid), and the tubing's coloring may indicate suitable applications. Barbed fittings are used to connect tubing or redirect flow in a fluid handling system. Plastic tubing is used in a wide variety of industries, such as agriculture, automotive, laboratory, and medicine. Applications for plastic tubing include blood and fluid handling, peristaltic pumps, electrical and thermal insulation, analytical systems, and food and beverage handling, among others.
