Details

A number of properties make this unreinforced polyurethane tube a versatile solution. It is resilient to abrasion, chemicals, gases, and most fuels, oils and greases.

It also possesses maximum kink resistance and minimum kink memory, making it an excellent choice for use in confined spaces. It is also silicone free and REACH, RoHS and ISO compliant. It is, however, of particular popularity for pneumatic uses.

Its suitability in low temperatures and tight bend radii often make it a superior choice to nylon tube that does not possess the same qualities.

  • Abrasion resilient.
  • Chemical resistant.
  • REACH, RoHS and BSI ISO 9001 compliant.
  • Silicone free.
  • Suitable in low temperatures.
  • Highly flexible with kink resistance.

Colour / Length

Lengths & Colour

Our polyurethane tube is available in a selection of sizes, ranging from 2.5mm inside diameter to 9mm inside diameter. All sizes are available in natural, red, black, and blue.

The polyurethane tube comes in a standard coil length of 30 metres, but is available in alternative lengths. If you have any queries, please contact our sales office for more information.

Use

Use

This unreinforced polyurethane tube is deal for low pressure pneumatic application and other applications such as pneumatic control systems, fuel lines and liquid lines.

Technical Details

Technical Details

The working pressures of this polyurethane tube are based on the short-term burst pressure at a temperature of 20°C using a 4:1 safety factor.

Maximum recommended continuous working temperature is 55°C with occasional short-term use at 85°C. Minimum temperature use is occasional use at -55°C.

The standard coil lengths is 30 metres, however if you are looking for alternative coil lengths, we provide customised solutions so our sales team will be happy to talk about your options. All tube sizes are also available in various colours and tints.
