Tubing Is Manufactured In FDA And Industrial Grades

Sept. 1, 2009
Suprene thermoplastic rubber (TPR) tubing from NewAge Industries is manufactured in two grades – FDA and Industrial – and in two hardnesses – 64A and 80A. Suprene’s performance characteristics make it well-suited for peristaltic pump use, and other applications include appliances, chemical conveyance, food and beverage lines, agriculture and lawn equipment, dispensing, ink transfer, pharmaceutical processing and packaging, paint spray systems, and more.

Suprene TPR tubing provides:

  • Outstanding compression properties
  • Flexibility like rubber but lighter weight
  • Excellent resistance to flex fatigue and tearing
  • A wide temperature range: –60°F to 275°F (–51°C to 135°C)

Suprene’s FDA grade is produced in two hardnesses – 64A and 80A. It is a natural tan color, autoclavable, and appropriate for clean applications and peristaltic pump use in industries such as food, beverage, and pharmaceutical processing. The National Sanitation Foundation lists the 80A material for use with food equipment materials (NSF-51).

The 64A industrial version is black in color and offers good resistance to U.V., ozone, and various chemicals. It is well suited for outdoor use and handles applications where oil may splash onto the tubing.

All styles of Suprene are stocked for same-day or JIT (Just in Time) shipment. Sizes range from 1/8” through 3/4” I.D. Customization includes other durometers and sizes, colors, overbraiding, and cut-to-length pieces.
