Issue Number 1 JANUARY 2009
Welcome to the premier issue of extrusions from plastic tubing manufacturer NewAge® Industries, Inc., the Fluid Transfer Specialists®.

plastic tubing and hoseIf you’re involved with plastic and rubber tubing and hose, fittings and clamps, hose assemblies, or custom tubing, extrusions is for you. It’s a new communication tool developed to inform, educate, and advise you about the many ways in which tubing and hose are, and may be, used.

Each issue will include:

  • A focus on a particular tubing material
  • Tubing and hose buying tips
  • Tech Talk, a section devoted to industry terms, FAQs, and technical issues

Other topics in the works are product comparisons, application stories, NewAge team member/department profiles, uses for tubing and hose that you may not have thought of, a feedback area, and surveys and quizzes. And we’ll keep you up to date on things here at NewAge, too, like new product developments and our 55th anniversary happening this year.

Finally – let’s face it – plastic tubing is pretty basic, so we’ll try to bring some humor into the mix. Learn and enjoy!

Tubing & Hose Buying Tips
#1: Ingredient Approvals

Material Focus
PVC

pvc tubingPolyvinyl chloride, or PVC, was discovered in the late 1800s. Scientists observing vinyl chloride, a newly-made chemical gas, learned that when the gas was exposed to sunlight, it underwent a chemical reaction now recognized as polymerization. This resulted in a solid material, but it was difficult to work with. READ MORE...

Tech Talk
A quick look at some tubing and hose manufacturing terms that perhaps you’ve heard, but you’re not sure of their meaning.

Extrusion: The process of compacting and melting a plastic or rubber material and forcing it through an orifice (die) in a continuous fashion. It’s how NewAge manufactures its tubing and hose.

Die: A device for forming material into a particular shape such as a tube. Dies are placed at the end of an extruder barrel and determine the size of the tube. They are exchanged for each tubing run of a different size.

Run: A quantity or amount of something produced at one time.
