Ester-based vs. Ether-based Polyurethane Tubing
There are two general classes of polyurethane and both are commonly found in the market: ether-base and ester-base. Chemically, these are made from two different polyol alcohols that cause similar, but different reactions in the isocyanate. From the user's standpoint, the ester-based polymer is less expensive however it degrades when exposed to moisture. Because of this, we manufacture our Fre-Thane® PUR tubing using the ether-based material. If you are looking for clear tubing, our color #10 PU 95A is an excellent crystal-clear choice.

Freelin-Wade's Fre-Thane® 95A tubing has an incredible resistance to abrasion. It is extremely hard, tough and durable, with the added benefit of being highly flexible and kink resistant. In general, tubing that retains its shape can really take a beating. However, with Fre-Thane® you can tug it, pull it, yank it, twist it – no matter what you do, it will return to its intended shape. Some of the features of 95A tubing include:
- Stands up to higher pressures with ease
- Excellent rub resistance
