AutomationDirect: Tubing for pneumatics line
AutomationDirect’s expanded NITRA pneumatic tubing line includes UV stabilized polyurethane (PUR) and PTFE styles.
NITRA tubing is made from the high-quality, 100% virgin raw materials and has a hardness specification of Shore A 98. The ether-based tubing provides resistance to hydrolosis, oil, and cold.
Strong and flexible, NITRA UV stabilized PUR tubing is suitable for outdoor use. This tubing provides protection against UV rays of the sun and ultraviolet lights used in curing processes. UV stabilized tubing is available in inch (5/32- to 1-in.) and metric sizes (4mm to 12mm) in 100-ft. and 500-ft. rolls.
NITRA PTFE tubing has a hardness specification of Shore D 55 and is designed for many high-heat applications. Its resistance to degradation of mechanical properties under severe conditions makes this tubing useful for applications such as processing wash down equipment, and higher pressure systems using compression fittings. This tubing is available in inch (1/4- to 1-in.) and metric sizes (4mm to 12mm) in 100-ft. rolls.
