NEWTEX tubing is an
exceptionally resilient material that has notable wear
resistance, very low permanent set characteristics, and
excellent flexibility at low temperatures.
NEWTEX will withstand
repeated sterilization with autoclaving at 250°F for 20
minutes. It will also endure limited sterilization with
ethylene oxide or gamma radiation.
Since natural rubber NEWTEX has some protein trace (an allergen), synthetic NEWTEX (polyisoprene), made without protein, can be supplied through minimum order. Synthetic NEWTEX can also be cured in straight lengths call for details. Synthetic NEWTEX should also be considered for its translucency, as natural latexs amber color is quite dark.
Also available through
special order is vacuum-rated, red-colored NEWTEX
call for details.
Note that NEWTEX may have multiple pieces per length of tubing^. This is due to the material's manufacturing limitations. See footnote below.
