Semi-Rigid Nylon

Nylon is the most often specified pneumatic tube. It is light, corrosion resistant, an ideal alternative to metal tube and can be cut and formed without special tools.

Altec Semi-Rigid Nylon tubing is manufactured from unplasticised (semi-rigid) nylon and therefore is more suitable for the conveyance of food products and beverages at higher pressures.
