Hytrel-Lined PVC tubing is an extremely versatile, co-extruded tubing designed for applications that require different performance characteristics from the inner tube and outside cover.
The Hytrel polyester core offers internal resistance to chemical attack, abrasion and contamination. The black PVC jacket offers excellent resistance to abrasion, oils and ozone, plus provides shock resistance and insulates the tubing from electronic interference.
Hytrel-Lined PVC tubing is made of FDA-sanctioned ingredients for use with food contact surfaces.
Made from natural latex, a thermoset material. Excellent resilience, tear, and tensile strength. Made from non-toxic ingredients conforming to FDA standards. Extremely elastic with excellent memory after repeated stretching.
Contains no plasticizers which can migrate and cause flow contamination or tube hardening.
Our amber natural rubber latex tubing meets or exceeds the physical properties of Commerical Item Description A-A-52047C Type I Class 1, 2, & 3, Type III, Type IV and Type V Class 1, 2, & 3 which replaced Federal Specification ZZ-T-831D
Nylon-11 is available in a food grade version made of FDA-approved materials.
Nylon-11, semi-rigid grade, natural color made with FDA-approved ingredients for use with food contact surfaces. Excellent resistance to flexural fatigue, tube vibration, and movement. Lightweight with excellent bend radii and pressure ratings. Resists crushing, abrasion, and cracking.
Polyethylene (PE) has long been recognized as an engineering plastic that exhibits a high degree of inertness, making it attractive for use in markets such as food and beverage, laboratories, and chemical processing where leaching or permeability would present risks.
Polyethylene is also one of the lower-cost plastic materials and satisfies many requirements that call for inexpensive, lightweight tubing. PE tubing handles a wide variety of applications ranging from potable water feed or drain lines to pneumatic or signal lines used in instrumentation.
Polypropylene is the lightest of all thermoplastics available today, and like polyethylene, it will float. Other product features are excellent dimensional stability and electrical properties, good surface hardness and chemical resistance, and easy coloration. It may be sterilized at temperatures above 212°F.
The combination of polypropylene’s properties makes it desirable for a broad mix of applications. In many areas where fluoropolymer tubing is typically used, polypropylene tubing can be employed as a relatively low-cost alternative. The high-crystalline composition also makes it good for use in structural systems. Polypropylene (PP) tubing is weldable and, when welded, can be used in non-fluid transfer
Polyurethane combines the best properties of both plastic and rubber. It offers abrasion and tear resistance, high tensile and elongation values, and low compression set.
Polyurethane is naturally flexible and exhibits virtually unlimited flexural abilities.
Combining good chemical resistance with excellent weathering characteristics sets polyurethane apart from most other thermoplastics. It has exceptional resistance to most gasolines, oils, kerosene, and other petroleum-based chemicals, making PU tubing and hose an ideal choice for fuel lines (although additives in today’s gasoline and petroleum products warrant field testing).
The two basic formulations of urethane, ester and ether, have some important differences. Water attacks ester-based urethane, causing a significant reduction in physical properties. Ether urethanes exhibit far superior hydrolytic stability, especially in humid environments. Ether-based materials also resist fungus growth better than ester-based materials.
A laboratory used product, pure gum tubing safely conducts acids, chemicals and gases. Pure gum tubing is also an ideal electrical insulation material for covering wires or cables in critical areas.
Major advantages of pure gum tubing: High resilience, good tensile strength, and tear resistance. Non-oil applications, great abrasion resistance, water/air and average concentration acids, bases alcohols, salts, ketones.
Flexible PVC tubing offers a broad range of chemical and corrosion resistance, excellent abrasion and wear resistance, rubber-like flexibility, visual contact with the flow (clear pvc tubing and hose styles), and outstanding flow characteristics.
These features, along with various construction options offered (wire or braid reinforcement, rigid pipe, unreinforced) and the different formulations available (fuel and oil, 3A, FDA, NSF), make PVC attractive for so many applications. These include general industrial, food, pharmaceutical and medical, chemicals, fuels, oils, and mechanical applications including protective coverings and insulation sleeving.
- 3A – The PVC compound complies with the criteria in 3-A Sanitary Standards for Multiple-Use Plastic Materials, number 20.

Hanna Rubber Company offers a broad line of tubing and hose products made from this versatile material, including platinum cured silcone tubing and silicone hose to ensure the least possible extractables. Our industrial grades offer exceptional performance at relatively lower costs.
Silicone tubing has long been used for medical tubing, as it meets the medical industry’s requirements for cleanliness and non-toxicity. Another of silicone’s major features “” resistance to extreme temperature variations “” has enabled its use in applications where a flexible tubing is needed to handle temperatures not possible with other plastics or rubbers.
A rubber-like thermoset material, silicone tubing and hose is extremely pliable and elastic, and it is not altered by the effects of weather. It generally exhibits inertness toward U.V., radiation, and ozone making it an excellent choice for electrically-associated applications.
Thermoplastic rubber (TPR) combines the processability of plastics with the flexibility and durability of rubbers. Typically more light weight and formable than rubber, TPR has been growing in acceptance for many applications over the last decade.
TPR provides outstanding compression characteristics plus offers excellent resistance to flex fatigue and tear. It maintains good flexibility to temperatures approaching -80°F.
Hanna Rubber Company offers TPR in two grades to meet specific applications. FDA grade may be selected from two durometers “” 64A or 80A “” to meet your requirements. It is natural in color and suitable for most clean needs, such as food and beverage or pharmaceuticals. Black-colored industrial grade is available in 64A durometer. This formulation offers exceptional resistance to U.V., ozone, and other chemicals. It is well suited for outdoor use.
