Nylon tubing in two flexibility styles, six colors

July 30, 2007

NewAge® Industries announces the immediate availability of Nylotube®, its brand of nylon tubing 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. Advantages include low moisture absorption (1.4 percent maximum at 73 degrees F), excellent resistance to flex fatigue, tight dimensional tolerances, lightweight with excellent bend radii and pressure ratings, and resistance to corrosion, abrasion, crushing, cracking, and brittleness. 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.
