Tubing & Hose Buying Tips
#19: Explore Custom Options

It can be challenging to make sure you’ve covered all the bases during the tubing and hose selection process. Have you considered all the elements involved with the application? Temperatures, chemicals, pressures, flexibility needs? In Tubing & Hose Buying Tips we’ll address common selection factors, one at a time, in each issue of extrusions.

custom tubing shapesDon't settle for stock products if they don't fulfill your requirement – ask about a custom product. Can the tubing be made in a different size? Can it be tinted to match your company's identifying colors? Can it be made in a different hardness (durometer)? Can it be molded to fit around a particular design element? Can you get it with fittings and clamps already attached? Can you get 8,000 pieces, each a foot long, with a 4" slit at one end?

Some companies are able (or willing) to sell only full coils of tubing or reinforced hose and offer no alternatives. But you may not know if you don't ask.

Customization can be as simple as a different I.D. (inner diameter) or as complex as color-matched tubing with a static dissipative additive that's printed with temperature limitations and formed into 10 foot retractable coils with a diameter of 5"*. Why not explore your options when an application calls for a non-stock item?

NewAge Industries offers a variety of customized tubing and hose products* such as
:

  • Custom Performance Additives – Raw materials can be blended with ingredients to enhance specific performance properties. Options include low temperature flexibility, improved elasticity, ozone deterioration resistance, decreased tackiness, improved conductivity, and many others.
  • Custom Extrusions – Colors, co-extrusions, sizes, tolerances, in-line cutting, striping, O.D. treatments, and more
  • Hot Bond® – Tubing and reinforced hose can be thermally bonded to similar materials to create a ribbon of tubing, providing a neater appearance, easier installations, and consequently, reduced labor costs.
  • Heat-Formed Shapes – These can eliminate problems such as kinking while they improve aesthetics.
  • Coiling – Adds flexibility to semi-rigid or rigid materials
  • Printing – Identify a tubing's size, suggested usage, temperature range, your company name, more.
  • Overbraiding – Some applications call for added heat resistance, protection from chemicals that may splash onto the tubing, or a buffer for friction. Stainless steel or fabric overbraiding can address these issues.
  • Hose Assemblies – Barbed fittings and clamps are available from stock to mate with tubing and reinforced hose for a completed assembly. NewAge also offers crimp style fittings and collars for a permanent connection.
