Polyurethane Tube

Widely used in pneumatic control systems thanks to its resilience, tight bend radii, flexibility and suitability in low temperatures, our polyurethane tube is a high-performance tube option that offers great capabilities and abrasion resistance.

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.

Our polyurethane (PU) 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.

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

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