Flexible, lightweight and durable over a wide temperature range, our nylon tube is the go-to tube choice for a number of purposes such as pneumatic control systems, fuel lines, and food and beverage production lines.
What is Nylon Tube?Nylon tubing is regarded highly for its exceptional stability, mechanical strength and resistance to chemical corrosion, nylon is considered to be one of the most versatile engineering materials. This is why we use nylon 6/12 polymer to manufacture this tube. Heat and light stabilised to precise tolerances, it creates a flexible, lightweight and durable tube that possesses improved flow capabilities. For use with higher temperatures and pressures, we can also manufacture semi-rigid nylon tube in all of the same sizes as our standard nylon tube.
Nylon Tube has the following benefits:
- Flexible over a wide temperature range
- Lightweight and durable.
- Flexible for routing into tight spaces
- Chemical, moisture and abrasion resistant.
- Corrosion resistant
- Low water resistance
- Withstand repeated flexing
- High resistance to vibration
- REACH, RoHS and BSI ISO 9001 compliant.
- Improved flow capabilities.
- Semi-rigid option is available.
High temperature resistanceOur nylon tubing can still maintain integrity with occasional use of up to 120°C and 140°C. Making it suitable for many hi-heat applications.
Low temperature resistanceTo complement its high temperature resistant, Nylon tubing can also be used in environments of -40°C – again making it suitable for many applications.
High pressure resistanceOur nylon tuning has great pressure resistance; however, we can manufacture this in flexible and semi rigid materials depending on your bespoke needs. Do please refer to our WP/BP charts.
High resistance to abrasionAs this tubing has a high abrasion resistance it makes it ideal for applications that need to carry liquids or gasses. This will help to prevent accidental damage to the tubing that will cause leakages or spillages.
Nylon 12 PolymerOur nylon tubing is made up of Nylon 12 which is a polymer. This is important as Nylon 12 offers great characteristics such as good resistance to abrasion,heat and cold to name a few.
