Nylon Tubing

Nylon tubing, also known as polyamide tubing, can withstand higher temperatures and pressures than many other tubing options, making it an ideal solution for a wide range of applications. Freelin-Wade manufactures a huge array of nylon tubing options, using our special nylon 11 resins. We can also provide customized nylon tubing to meet your unique requirements.
 
When compared to other nylon resins, Freelin-Wade’s tubing allows for a lighter-weight wall, greater flexibility, and a smaller bend radius. Because it’s resistant to moisture absorption, our nylon tube is also more corrosion resistant than other types of nylon tubing. It is heat and UV stabilized, making it resistant to stress-cracking, and so is ideal for use in outdoor applications with constant sun exposure. Our nylon tubing is also highly chemical resistant.

Nylon Tubing Options

Standard Nylon Tubing

We offer nylon tubing in a variety of stock sizes and colors, as well as custom nylon tubing that is tailored to your specific needs. Coiling (see below), bonding of multiple tubes, cut-to-length, custom printing, and other options are available to give you the perfect nylon tube for your application.

Nylon D.O.T. Tubing

Freelin-Wade’s nylon DOT tubing is specially designed for use as airbrake tubing in heavy duty vehicles. Our Type A DOT tubing meets SAE J844 specifications, and is available in a range of sizes and colors to meet your needs.

Nylon High Pressure Tubing

For applications with high working pressures (up to 800psi), we offer special high pressure nylon tubing. Made from a special semi-rigid compound, this nylon tubing exhibits outstanding tensile strength while maintaining its flexibility.

Super Soft Nylon Tubing

Our Super Soft Nylon 11 tubing is formulated with a special compound that makes it even more flexible than our standard nylon tubing, without sacrificing other beneficial properties. Super Soft Nylon 11 tubes are ideal for applications where media and environmental conditions make polyurethane impractical.

Nylon Tube Mini Coils

With 2” integral pigtails on each end, our nylon tubing mini coils can be used with push-to-connect or standard compression fittings. Small coil diameters make this tubing easy to handle. It is ideal for use with small pneumatic tools and in robotics applications.

Coiled Nylon Tubing

Fitted with durable brass male swivel compression fittings and preassembled spring guards, our coiled nylon tubes are easy to install; a self-retracting design makes them easy to use. Rated for working pressures up to 185psi and vacuum up to 28” Hg for demanding applications.
 

Features & Benefits of Freelin-Wade Nylon Tubing

  • Stress-Cracking Resistance: Our nylon tubing resists stress-cracking thanks to UV stabilization, which means it can be used in outdoor applications and in direct sunlight.
  • Lightweight Wall: When every ounce matters, choose tubing that is lightweight.
  • Smaller Bend Radius: With a smaller bend radius than other types of tubing, our nylon tubes have better flexibility and can fit into complex designs.
  • Corrosion Resistance: Freelin-Wade’s nylon tubing is a good option for any application that involves salt water, chemicals, or other corrosive materials.

Chemical Resistance

Our nylon tubing is resistant to a variety of chemicals and other hazardous/harmful materials, including:
  • Solvents
  • Alkalis
  • Oils
  • Grease
  • Petroleum
  • Fungal growth

Nylon 11

Many of Freelin-Wade’s nylon tubes are extruded from nylon 11 resin. Nylon 11 (a.k.a. polyamide 11) is a unique nylon material that is produced from castor beans. This material is known for its outstanding chemical, abrasion, impact, and moisture resistance and dimensional stability. Nylon 11 is used in industries ranging from food processing to auto manufacturing to robotics.
