Let’s Take a Look at Our Tubing Products Range

Here are our main tube products available for order. All of the following types of tubes are available in different sizes, wall thicknesses, pressure ratings, hardness, lengths, etc. So, for more information, call to discuss it with one of our experts.

  • Stainless Steel Tubing (304 SS & 316 SS Dual Rated)

Stainless steel tubing is one of the most versatile and durable tubes that are widely used for different applications across various industries.

Stainless steel tubing is heat and corrosion resistant. In addition, as it is easy to clean, steel tubing is used in industrial and medical applications where a high level of hygiene and sanitation is required. For example, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, food processing, surgical instruments,

geothermal, gas transfer, heat exchangers, instrumentation, chemical process, alternative energy, etc.

We offer two main kinds of stainless steel tubes:

Seamless or Welded Straight Length Stainless Steel Tubing

It is available in 20 ft length and comes in different ODs, wall thicknesses, and working pressure ratings. The product specifications and features are printed on the lay line of the tubing.

Seamless or Welded Coiled Stainless Steel Tubing

It can be ordered in longer lengths, up to 6,000 feet. It’s possible to order a full coil or custom coil (increments of 100 feet). Like straight length stainless steel tubes, the OD, wall thickness, material, pressure rating, standard, mill and heat ID are printed on the lay line of the tubing features are printed on the product.  Coiled Tubing is fully heat and lot traceable. Material certifications are shipped with the tubing.

  • Silicone Tubing

temperature-resistance and flexible tubing that is a great choice for applications with extreme temperatures (-60 to 200°C), such as automotive, industrial processes, and aerospace.

It is also useful in electrical and electronics applications due to silicone’s electrical insulation properties. Besides, it is non-toxic, biocompatible, and can resist many chemicals which is important in medical and healthcare, food and beverage industry, chemical processing, laboratories, and pharmaceutical industries.

  • Polyurethane Tubing

Polyurethane tubes are flexible and durable. The elasticity allows it to tolerate stretches, bends, twists, and kinks without any permanent damage or deformation. Polyurethane is also known for resisting abrasion and chemicals.

All these properties make polyurethane tubing suitable for a wide range of applications that do not require extreme temperature resistance, like hydraulic and pneumatic systems, robotics, and automotive.

  • PVC Tubing

PVC or polyvinyl chloride tubing comes in both rigid and flexible forms which makes it versatile. It is commonly used in different kinds of water and fluid handling applications.

PVC has electrical insulation properties and resists many chemicals. Plus, it is affordable. As a result, PVC tube is a popular choice in many industries, like construction and infrastructure, ventilation systems, air conditioning, chemical processing, and automotive.

  • Nylon Tubing

Strength, longevity, and flexibility are the main characteristics of nylon tubes. They are useful in fluid transfer systems, pneumatic and hydraulic systems, vacuum systems, air conditioning, industrial machinery, medical and healthcare applications, etc.

Nylon tubing’s popularity is mainly due to its resistance to chemicals, abrasion, and wear and tear.

  • Fluoropolymer Tubing

Fluoropolymer tubing is made from materials such as

  • Polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE)
  • Perfluoroalkoxy (PFA)
  • Fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP)

Fluoropolymers are best known for their chemical resistance, high-temperature resistance (-200 to 260°C), electrical insulation properties, low weight, and low coefficient of friction (non-stick properties).

Therefore, PTFE, PFA, and FEP tubes are used in many applications. For example, aerospace and aviation, analytical instruments, food and beverage industry, automotive, and manufacturing processes.

  • Viton Tubing

Viton tubes are perfect for demanding environments because of their exceptional

  • chemical resistance,
  • high-temperature resistance (-20 to 200°C),
  • resistance to oil, fuel, and hydrocarbon-based fluids,
  • and electrical insulation properties.

So, it’s no surprise that Viton (a brand of fluoroelastomer) tubing is utilized in the oil and gas industry, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, aerospace and aviation, automotive, chemical processing, and many more.

  • Hytrel Tubing

Hytrel tubing is made from a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) that offers the flexibility of rubber as well as the processibility of thermoplastics. It is also strong and durable and can easily withstand stretches, bends, and twists. In addition, it can resist moisture, chemicals, and abrasion.

Sports and water-based activities, food processing, medical applications, pneumatic and hydraulic systems, industrial machinery, and the automotive industry are only a few instances where Hytrel tubes are useful.

  • Polyethylene Tubing

Polyethylene tubing is made from polyethylene which is a thermoplastic polymer. It is found in the following forms.

  • Low-density polyethylene (LDPE)
  • High-density polyethylene (HDPE)
  • Linear Low-density polyethylene (LLDPE)

Polyethylene is generally famous for its durability, chemical resistance, flexibility, and resistance to corrosion.

Industries and applications like medical and healthcare, construction and infrastructure, gas distribution, water and fluid transport, and automotive frequently utilize polyethylene tubes.

  • Thermoplastic Rubber Tubing

Another strong but flexible choice, thermoplastic rubber tubing is resistant to oils, chemicals, wear, abrasion, weathering, and UV and Ozon exposure.

Therefore, it is a great choice for outdoor applications, sports and recreation, ventilation, air conditioning, plumbing, etc.

  • Latex Tubing

Latex tubing is made from natural latex rubber which is elastic, flexible, and biocompatible.

So, it is a common choice in medical and healthcare applications, laboratories, pharmaceuticals, research labs, cosmetics, sports and fitness, and even for some industrial purposes, such as pumping systems and fluid transfer.

  • Polypropylene Tubing

Polypropylene is another thermoplastic polymer that is

  • chemical resistant and can carry harsh substances,
  • high-temperature resistance,
  • moisture resistant,
  • safe and easy to clean,
  • suitable for air, gas, and fluid,
  • corrosion resistant,
  • UV resistant,
  • and known for its low density.

Consequently, it is used for a variety of applications, like chemical transfer, refrigeration, air conditioning, agriculture and irrigation, science and research labs, healthcare, the food and beverage industry, pneumatic and hydraulic systems, etc.

Our Other Tubing Options

As a big tube supplier, we not only offer various materials, sizes and dimensions, seamless and welded tubing, but also

  • Different Tube Shapes

Circular tubing or round tube is the most popular tubing shape mainly due to its symmetrical structure. This symmetry allows the force to be distributed evenly and reduces the concentration of stress in a particular section. Therefore, it is rigid and strong. Circular tubes come in various sizes and dimensions, such as outer diameter (OD), inner diameter (ID), wall thickness, and length.

Oval tubing is used mostly where there are space limitations or for aesthetics. Oval tubes are also utilized in the automotive industry, for example for exhaust systems.

Rectangular tubing and square tubing are made from various materials, such as aluminum tubing and copper tubing. Additionally, they are strong and stable because of their straight sides and right angles. Rectangular and square tubes are used for different applications, mainly in automotive, architecture, furniture, building frames, and trusses.

  • Tubes Are Compliant with ASME and ASTM Standards

American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and ASTM International are two main organizations that specify standards for tubes and other products. These standards provide the requirements (dimensions, tolerance, chemical compositions, etc.) for tubing used in different applications and industries.
