A.P. Extrusion manufacturers an extensive line of nylon tubing. Nylon tubing offers an alternative to traditional plastic tubing. Nylon tubing is lightweight, corrosion and abrasion resistant and has long been considered a rugged engineering plastic. Its unique properties make nylon tubing a desirable material choice for engineers and designers.
Nylon tubing is available in several formulations for industry specific needs. Nylon-11 is available for food industry applications, and is made with FDA approved materials. Nylon-12 is used in a variety of industrial applications and is less expensive to produce than Nylon-11.
Its elastic memory enables nylon tubing to withstand repeated stress over long periods of time without negative effects. Nylon compounds are chemical resistant plastics with high-heat and high-pressure resistance. Nylon compounds are hydroscopic and can, therefore absorb moisture.
Nylon tubing is an excellent material choice for retractable coils and comes in various grades including; rigid, semi-rigid, and flexible. Nylon tubing is available in many sizes and colors.
