This flexible NSF-61 ester-based polyurethane tubing offers abrasion, radiation, impact, weathering and tear resistance. It has high tensile and elongation values and low compression set. It resists a wide range of temperatures from -95°F to 185°F. It does not contain plasticizer, reducing the risk of flow contamination or tube hardening. While it is made from nontoxic material meeting FDA requirements for use with wet and fatty foods, unlike ether-based polyurethane tubing
, this ester-based tubing faces significant reduction in its physical properties when in regular, prolonged contact with water, humidity or fungi. Polyurethane tubing can be heat sealed, coiled, fabricated or bonded. Although polyurethane is commonly used in fuel applications in the oil and gas industry, due to additives in today's gasoline and petroleum products, field testing should be performed.
This tubing is utilized in various applications from electronic use to food processing. It is seen in cable jacketing, grease lines, insulating sleeves, metering pumps, pressure measuring devices, fluid transfer lines and many other areas. While Component Supply provides some information for possible applications for this tubing, there are too many possible functions for a comprehensive description of uses in various industries. Therefore, when considering a potential application in your particular industry, please consider contacting one of our knowledgeable representatives who assist researchers and product designers in choosing the best products for their specific applications.
Component Supply stocks this ester-based polyurethane tubing in the dimensions indicated on the chart below. Although we stock large volumes of this product for efficient and competitive distribution, we also seek to provide application-specific functionality to researchers and product designers by keeping minimum order quantities low and offering custom fabrication of our products. For more custom fabrication information for this polyurethane tubing, please contact a Component Supply representative who can inform you of the best options for your specific application.
