McMinnville, Oregon - Freelin-Wade's new tubing, Spatter Guard SRT is made from a 94V0 polyurethane resin that has been specifically formulated to resist against weld spatter without the need of an outer jacket.
The company said that while this new tubing can be used in any application where the customer is currently using a jacketed version, it is capable of higher working pressures, making it better suited for industrial applications.
This new resin resists oils, greases, heat, aging, ultra violet light, and is silicone and halogen free. Also, because it is made of polyurethane, it is kink-resistant, abrasion resistant, and it can also be bonded and formed into retractable coils.
The tubing, available in black, red, green, blue and white in metric sizes also, works with push-to-connect and compression fittings, the company said.
Founded in 1980, Freelin-Wade of McMinnville, Oregon claims to be North America's largest independent manufacturer of plastic tubing and hoses. It employs more than 100 people.
