Developed by scientists at DuPont in the 1930’s, nylon has long been used in a variety of applications. Certain nylon formulas produce fibers that are used in items such as clothing, ropes, musical strings, automotive components, and military items. Other formulations produce material for molding, casting, and extrusion processes.
Nylon tubing is a versatile product that resists chemicals, molds and fungi, cracking and abrasion, and flexural fatigue. Other benefits include tight dimensional tolerances, light weight, excellent bend radii and pressure ratings, and good performance at temperatures as low as 90°F (-67°C).
NewAge Industries offers its brand of nylon tubing, Nylotube®, in both nylon-11 and nylon-12 formulas. These types of nylon have low moisture absorption characteristics and are not prone to brittleness or swelling. While both versions offer similar physical properties and performance, nylon-11 is available in a food grade version. Nylon-12 is typically used in industrial applications and costs somewhat less than nylon-11. Fractional and metric sizes are available in six colors. Push-to-connect fittings work well with Nylotube and are stocked in plastic and brass.
