Polyurethane combines the best properties of plastic and rubber. It offers abrasion and tear resistance, high tensile and elongation values, and low compression set. Polyurethane is naturally flexible-contains no phthalates-and exhibits virtually unlimited flexural abilities. Combining good chemical resistance with excellent weathering characteristics sets polyurethane apart from most other thermoplastics. It has exceptional resistance to most gasolines, oils, kerosene, and other petroleum-based chemicals. The two basic formulations of urethane, ester and ether, have some important differences. Water attacks ester-based urethane, causing a significant reduction in physical properties. Ether urethanes exhibit far superior hydrolytic stability, especially in humid environments. Ether-based materials also resist fungus growth better than ester-based materials. All of NewAge Industries’ polyurethane products are 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.
