Southampton, PA, United States, 2010/01/08 - Prolite® polypropylene tubing from NewAge Industries works well in many applications as a less costly alternative to fluoropolymer tubing. Prolite provides excellent chemical resistance, low moisture absorption, and high dielectric strength.
Now available from tubing manufacturer NewAge Industries is Prolite® polypropylene tubing. A semi-rigid product, Prolite is made from an NSF-61 (National Sanitation Foundation) compound and is used in applications such as potable water supply, food processing, beverage transfer, chemical lines, dispensing equipment, environmental monitoring, pharmaceutical processing, refrigeration, compressed air, electronic equipment and household appliances, and more.
Prolite’s properties include:
• Excellent chemical and corrosion resistance;
• Very low moisture absorption;
• High dielectric strength;
• Meets UL94 HB burn rating;
• Thermoformable and weldable;
• Low surface friction;
• Compound meets FDA requirements for food contact surfaces.
These combined attributes make Prolite a viable and reasonably priced alternative to fluoropolymer tubing in many applications.
Prolite is stocked in nine sizes (1/4” through 1-1/4” O.D.) for same-day shipment. Custom options consist of non-stock sizes, colors, heat formed shapes, coils, and cut-to-length pieces. Although Prolite may be welded, it is typically joined by means of a push-to-connect fitting such as Newloc®.
