A.P. Extrusion has been in the Plastic Extrusion Industry for decades. We offer a wide variety of Poly Tubing, including urethane and polyurethane Tubing. Urethane tubing can be extruded in many varieties to serve various applications in multiple industries. Medical grade urethane can be used in tubing when FDA, USDA, or NSF is a requirement. Let our designers and engineers assist with the material selection that best suits your Poly Tubing needs.
Urethane tubes are some of the toughest and most flexible tubes available. They are abrasion and tear resistant. Urethane can be the perfect material choice for many pick-and-place applications.
Urethane tubing is available in an ether-based material that is resistant to oil, fuel, and other petroleum-based chemicals. Ether-based urethane tubing is relatively strong, relatively inexpensive.
Ether-based urethane is also a material that is resistant to humidity and is a great choice for water transfer applications. Ether-based urethane tubing is hydrolytically stabile-even in humid environments, resists fungus, and is a superb material choice for pneumatic applications.
It is also a non-leaching material because it is free of plasticizers; reducing the chance of urethane tubing becoming brittle and causing contamination. Urethane tubing is resistant to deterioration caused from contamination of human handling.
Urethane tubing is an appropriate and cost-effective material choice for many applications. Fittings should be specific to the type of material: for 95A durometer rating 'push to connect' fittings are acceptable; for 90A, 85A, and 70A 'barb' fittings are recommended ('compression' fittings can be used, but are not as highly recommended).
