Vitube Flexible Tubing of Viton Rubber Offers Exceptional Chemical Resistance and Performs Well Even at Elevated Temperatures

Vitube tubing from NewAge Industries offers resistance to a wide range of chemicals including oils, mineral acids, and aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons. It handles these materials at temperatures up to 400°F (204°C). Vitube provides the high resiliency of an elastomer along with the good mechanical properties of conventional synthetic rubber tubing. Two styles are available: type A with a Shore A durometer of 75; type B with Shore A durometer 60. Viton reg. TM Dupont Performance Elastomers.

 

NewAge Industries is pleased to offer Vitube tubing made of Dupont Performance Elastomer's Viton synthetic rubber. The material provides a wide range of chemical resistance along with superior performance, especially at high temperatures. Applications include fuel and oil lines, chemical transfer, peristaltic pumps, appliances, seals and o-rings, automotive fluids, hot lubrication and solvents.

Vitube has the flexibility and good mechanical properties of conventional synthetic rubbers, but its heat and chemical resistance go well beyond the range of other rubber materials. Vitube handles temperatures between -30°F and 400°F (-34°C and 204°C) and has withstood temperatures as high as 600°F (315°C) for limited time periods.

Certain fluids, particularly those that are petroleum based, can act as solvents on rubber, disintegrating the material and leading to tubing failure. Vitube withstands many of these fluids, even when temperatures are elevated. Its performance is something that other rubber materials simply cannot match.
