Nylon Tubing

Scientists at DuPont invented nylon in 1931. Heralded as “the miracle fiber”  because unlike previous manufactured fibers, early nylon was synthesized entirely from petrochemicals. Like other polymers, its first major commercialization came as a textile. DuPont never registered the trademark for nylon, instead hoping that the name would become synonymous  with “stockings.”*

In addition to the standard Nylon tubing, Freelin-Wade has resins for Soft Nylon 11 Tubing and Nylon 11 High Pressure Tubing.
