Our Selection of Available Tubing On Market

Selecting the right tubing is critical to the success of your project. Choose the proper tubing for a particular job should be done after all of the application requirements are considered.

Polyethylene Tubing – the most commonly used because of its flexibility, lower cost and wide range of chemical resistance.

Polyurethane Tubing – a good choice for applications requiring flexibility, a small bend radius or where kinking would be an issue. This tubing is recommended where flow rate is not critical.

Nylon Tubing – great for low pressure pneumatic applications since it is both flexible and tough.

Mini-Coils – ideal for use with robotics, instrumentation, small pneumatic tools, control circuits etc.

Freelin-Wade’s Kynar Polyvinylidene Fluoride Food Grade Tubing – made with a high purity material that is ideal for applications that require an odorless and tasteless tube.

Freelin-Wade’s Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) – ideal for all applications that require chemical resistance or a wide range of temperatures.

Pisco’s Low-Friction Polyurethane Tubing – very flexible which allows for a small bending radius. Pisco also offers a Vacuum tube which features flexible and compact tubing.

Nycoil’s Ny-Chem Kynar Tubing – the purist of all commercial resins, making it ideal for applications where compliance to most agency regulations is required.

PTFE Extruded Tubing

PTFE extruded tubing is a fluoropolymer material choice for applications in many environments. Known for its non-conductive, dielectric properties, PTFE is a choice material for high electrical fields and insulating electronic components. PTFE is water and heat resistant, resists chemical and acid corrosion, and has excellent lubricity. Perhaps its best-known property is its low frictional coefficient, meaning that nothing sticks to it, which is why it lines many pots and pans in kitchens around the globe under the name Teflon.

Because of its superior properties, PTFE has many general applications in such diverse industrial sectors as chemical, automotive, aerospace, electrical, medical, manufacturing, and pharmaceutical industries. M.M. Newman Corporation’s PTFE extruded tubing is offered in varying sizes and materials—PTFE Industrial Heavy Wall Tubing, Standard Wall PTFE Electrical Insulation Tubing, and Thin Wall PTFE Electrical Insulation Tubing.

Tubing dimensions are specified as light, thin, standard, and heavy-walled. Working temperature ranges of PTFE tubing are from -454°F to 500°F (-270°C to 260°C). Due to its non-conductive and insulating properties, the tubing is well-suited to protect wires and cables in harsh working environments. Depending on the material applications, extruded tubing can also be manufactured with such other fluoropolymers as FEP or PFA.


Considerations when choosing tubing

Think about the variables you need to consider when selecting a type and size of tubing for a job: 

  • Surface finish
  • Material
  • Hardness
  • Wall thickness

With just those four factors you can come up with thousands of permutations. To help you narrow down your choices, Swagelok has developed tubing data sheets. There are separate sheets for more than a dozen different materials such as carbon steel, copper, aluminum and a variety of alloys.
