What is Nylon Tubing made from?
Nylon tubing is a type of thermoplastic polymer tubing with several benefits and uses in various industries. It is known for its flexibility, strength, and durability, making it an ideal choice for multiple applications.
How is Nylon Tubing made?
The manufacturing process produces the tubing material by extruding nylon resin through a die to form the tube shape. After forming the tube, it cools down before being cut to the desired length. This method ensures the precise creation of nylon tubing for various applications.
High strength, abrasion resistant & durable
One of the key benefits of nylon tubing is its strength. Nylon is a highly durable material that can withstand high pressure, making it an excellent choice for high-pressure applications.
The strength of our nylon tubing is of utmost importance in applications that subject the tubing to high stress levels. These applications include hydraulic systems, fuel lines, and pneumatic systems, where the tubing must withstand and perform reliably under demanding conditions.
Another vital benefit of nylon tubing is its flexibility. Unlike rigid metal or plastic piping, nylon tubing can bend and conform to the shape of its surroundings, making it an ideal choice for applications where flexibility is required.
Our nylon tubing’s flexibility significantly contributes to applications requiring the tubing to route through tight spaces or around corners. This flexibility enables easier installation and manoeuvrability, ensuring the tubing’s efficient routing in various challenging environments.
Anti vibration properties
Additionally, nylon tubing can absorb vibrations, reducing the stress on connected components. It is ideal for applications where vibration is a concern.
High chemical resistance
Nylon tubing is also known for its resistance to various chemicals. Our nylon tubing is well-suited for applications that involve exposure to harsh chemicals. Its chemical resistance properties make it an ideal choice for environments where the tubing needs to withstand contact with various corrosive substances and maintain its integrity and performance over time. Nylon is highly resistant to multiple chemicals, including fuels, oils, and solvents. It is ideal for use in automotive systems and fuel lines.
Besides its other beneficial qualities, Nylon also resists UV light, which makes it highly suitable for outdoor applications. This UV resistance ensures that the nylon tubing maintains its structural integrity and performance even when exposed to prolonged sunlight, making it a reliable choice for various outdoor applications.
Nylon tubing finds extensive usage across a wide range of industries and applications. Its versatility and excellent properties make it a popular choice in automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, chemical processing, medical, and many others. It serves diverse applications such as fluid transfer, pneumatic systems, fuel and oil lines, hydraulic systems, robotics, instrumentation, and more. The broad applicability of nylon tubing highlights its significance in numerous industrial sectors.
In the automotive industry, nylon tubing is vital in various applications. It is commonly used in fuel lines, ensuring efficient and safe fuel transfer within the vehicle. Additionally, it finds application in transmission cooler lines, helping to cool and regulate the temperature of the transmission fluid. Nylon tubing is also employed in vacuum systems, contributing to the proper functioning of various components.
Furthermore, it can be utilised in engine management systems, where it aids in delivering fluids and gases to support engine operations.
Manufacturers like us employ nylon tubing to construct hydraulic, fuel lines, and pneumatic systems in the aerospace industry.
The medical industry utilises nylon tubing in surgical instruments, catheter tubing, and dialysis machines.
Nylon tubing is also commonly used for beverage dispensing systems and food processing equipment in the food and beverage industry.
Highly customisable tubing
In addition to its various applications, nylon tubing is highly customisable. Manufacturers can cut nylon tubing to specific lengths, mould it into custom shapes, and join it to other pieces of tubing using fittings and connectors.
This customisation allows the creating of unique systems that meet specific requirements, making it an ideal choice for applications where a standard product may not be suitable.
What sizes & colours can Nylon Tubes come in?
Our nylon tubing is available in a range of sizes.

Technical details of our Nylon Tubing
The working pressures of these tubes and pipes are determined based on the short-term burst pressure calculated at 20°C, considering a 4:1 safety factor. Working and burst pressures of semi-rigid Nylon are approximately 60% higher than for flexible Nylon.
For elevated temperatures, up to 110°C, with intermittent use of temperatures up to 140°C, it is recommended to use semi-rigid Nylon. The maximum recommended continuous working temperature for nylon tubing is 70°C, with occasional limited periods of up to 120°C.
Any increases in temperature above 20°C will affect the short-term burst pressure quoted for this product. The minimum operating temperature is -40°C.
