Notes

†Hydrolytic Stability — For resistance to moisture and fungi, SUPERTHANE ether is recommended. (Ester polyurethane does not react well with water, prolonged humid conditions, or attack from fungi.) The raw material used in its manufacture is listed by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF 61).

 

SUPERTHANE is much more resistant to pressure and vacuum applications than corresponding sizes of PVC or rubber.

††Although polyurethane is commonly used in fuel applications, due to additives in today’s gasoline and petroleum products, field testing should be performed.

 

Custom coiled polyurethane is available — call for details.

 

For easy identification, SUPERTHANE is imprinted with the trademarked name.

Add length suffix to part number when ordering. Example: 100 ft. of 1/8″ I.D. x 3/16″ O.D. ester tubing is part number 200 0152-100.
Working pressures are calculated from burst testing using a 3:1 safety factor. Application testing is recommended.
Cut coils are available from coils of 100 ft. or less; charges apply — call for details. Coils over 100 ft. are sold by standard coil length only.
Tolerances: ID & OD ±3% but not less than ±.005″.
ID is the critical dimension for fittings application.
