NewAge® Industries offers a broad line of tubing and hose products made from this versatile material, including platinum cured versions to ensure the fewest number of extractables. Silicone has long been used for medical tubing, as it meets that industrys requirements for cleanliness and non-toxicity and is non-reactive to body issues and fluids. Another of silicones major features resistance to extreme temperature variations has enabled its use in applications where flexible tubing is needed to handle temperatures not possible with other plastics or rubbers those from -100°F to as high as 500°F (-73°C to 260°C). Silicone tubing generally exhibits inertness toward U.V. radiation and ozone, making it an excellent choice for electrically-associated applications. Both industrial and medical/biopharmaceutical grades are manufactured, as is a full vacuum grade hose. All of NewAges silicone tubing and hose is made in U.S.A.
A Comparison of Fittings
“A Comparison of Fittings” focuses on barbed fittings, push-to-connect fittings, compression fittings and cam operated couplings. It details how each works with tubing to ensure a good seal for proper fluid or air transfer. For instance, the report’s Barbed Fittings section notes that in order to obtain a proper seal, the O.D. (outer diameter) of the barbed area on the fitting must be slightly larger than the I.D. (inner diameter) of the tubing. The Push-To-Connect Fittings section offers tips such as making sure that the tubing used does not have exterior scratches, as this could compromise the seal.
PVC vs. Polyurethane A Tubing Comparison
PVC and polyurethane are thermoplastic materials that can be formed into a variety of shapes, including tubing and reinforced hose. Both materials are useful in numerous applications. But depending on factors such as temperature, chemicals and outdoor use, one product may perform better than the other in a particular application. This white paper examines each materials benefits, drawbacks, common uses and physical properties.
