Metric Polyurethane Tubing

Click image to enlarge
Metric PU tubing is comprised of two types of materials, isocyanate and polyol. These materials make up the structure of the two general classes of polyurethane tubing, ether-base and ester-base.  Fre-Thane® metric polyurethane tubing is specifically manufactured from ether-based poly material, providing advanced resistance to abrasion while being highly flexible and kink resistant. Due to its advanced memory quality, Fre-Thane® will stretch and flex but always return to its original shape.
