Polypropylene luer fittings are components of a standard system to connect small diameter tubing with secure, leak-proof connections. Polypropylene is a lightweight, flexible thermoplastic polymer resin, which resists deterioration in the presence of bacteria, mold or other elements. On these polypropylene fittings, the 6% taper on the male and female engage with each other to provide a friction connection as a slip. There are also male fittings with integral locking rings as well as rotating lock nuts allowing for more secure connections when necessary. Component Supply also offers Luer assemblies
using standard PVC
and various Tygon®
tubings using polycarbonate Luer fittings.
Polypropylene Luer fittings are used as connections to another Luer, barb or bulkhead or in a line set where a Luer fitting connects to fractional tubing. They are used extensively in the medical field where medical devices are connected to tubing and accessories responsible for delivering fluids and gases to patients. Other applications include uses in blood pressure cuffs, breathing systems, feeding tubes, intravenous devices, catheters and many more. For more information about the possible applications for polypropylene Luer fittings, please contact a Component Supply representative.
