Freelin-Wade’s nylon tubing can withstand greater pressures and higher temperatures than many other varieties of plastic tube, making it the ideal tubing option for a broad range of applications.
Our nylon tubing features a lighter-weight wall and provides better flexibility and smaller bend radii. It offers higher corrosion resistance than other types of nylon tubing, thanks to its resistance to moisture absorption. Freelin-Wade nylon tube is heat and UV stabilized, making it resistant to stress-cracking and therefore perfect for outdoor applications and sunlight exposure. It is also chemical resistant for use in areas where chemical exposure is common.

Is Nylon Tubing Heat Resistant?

The molecular structure of nylon makes it far more heat resistant than other types of plastic, such as polycarbonate. The melting point of nylon is 374°F (190°C), far higher than many other resins. In addition to its heat resistant properties, the material’s crystalline structure also gives it high wear and chemical resistance.
