Super Soft Nylon 11 Tubing
Flexible nylon tubing is extruded from nylon 11 resin with a special compound added that significantly increases flexibility while still retaining the beneficial properties of Nylon 11. Nylon 11 resin, also known as polyamide 11, is a unique material produced from castor beans that exhibits outstanding impact, moisture, chemical, abrasion, and thermal resistance, along with excellent dimensional stability.
Super Soft as a Substitute for Polyurethane
Recent industry-wide polyurethane shortages have placed restrictions on the availability of polyurethane tubing. While Freelin-Wade continues to produce their highly versatile polyurethane tubing products in a range of sizes, configurations and colors, stocking levels are low. Super Soft Nylon 11 is more flexible than standard nylon tubing and may offer a suitable alternative to polyurethane tubing.
