Multi-Bore Polyurethane Twin Bonded Coils
Dual bonded polyurethane coils are regularly used for transferring fluids and gas products. The multi-tube nature of these products allows for the delivery of increased amounts of fluid or gas without the hassle of larger tubes. Additionally, different types of fluid or gas can also be delivered within the various tubes, which saves space and provides added convenience.

Literature and Additional Information
Fre-Thane® Dual Bonded Polyurethane CoilsFreelin-Wade’s unique, ether-based Fre-Thane® polyurethane coil tubing offers extreme flexibility, excellent kink resistance and outstanding memory. This polyurethane multi-tube coil can be repeatably stretched and flexed to its limit but will always return to its original shape. Fre-Thane® twin bonded coils are ideal for nearly any coil tubing application.
Additionally, Fre-Thane® is available in numerous colors, and offers the most custom-variation possibilities of any of our plastic tubing products.
Freelin-Wade’s Multi-Tube CoilsWe produce our Fre-Thane® polyurethane multi-bore polyurethane coils in a single extrusion. This prevents the individual tubes from separating and creates a sturdier and more secure coiled tubing product. However, this means that all tubes must be the same color. See below for multi-tube options featuring different-colored coils. Download our free polyurethane multi-tube coils data sheet for more information.

Ether-Base vs. Ester-Base Dual Bonded Polyurethane CoilsPolyurethane was developed by German chemist Friedrich Bayer in 1937. Originally known as “Perlon U”, polyurethane gained popularity during World War II as a replacement for rubber. In its first commercial application, polyurethane resin was used as a thread to make a stretchable, lightweight fabric that would come to be known as Spandex.
Today, there are two standard classes of polyurethane: ether-base and ester-base. Both are commonly used across numerous markets. Chemically, polyurethane resins are comprised of polyol alcohol and isocyanate. The difference is the type of polyol—both options produce similar, but different, reactions in the isocyanate.
In general, ester-based polyurethane is less expensive; however, it degrades when exposed to moisture. Because of this, Freelin-Wade manufactures all our Fre-Thane® polyurethane multi-tube coils from ether-base materials.

Innovative Polyurethane Multi-Tube Coil Manufacturers Since 1980Freelin-Wade began manufacturing polyurethane multi tube coil in 1980, and, with the introduction of Fre-Thane®, it remains our flagship product today. Fre-Thane® polyurethane tubing is our most versatile product, with more options and variations available than any other tubing we offer.
Multi-Color Twin Bonded Coil Variable OptionsIf your application requires multi-tube coils with different colored tubes (or if you simply prefer this option), Freelin-Wade offers Multi-Colored Ribbon tubing (MCR). MCR is made with a special bonding technology that enables us to take tubes of different sizes and colors and join them to make multi-tube coils. One distinct advantage MCR coiled tubes offer over Fre-Thane® multi-tubes is that individual MCR coils can be separated easily, without any residue left behind.
