  • Philadelphia, PA-NJ (1888PressRelease) April 24, 2013 - NewAge Industries is pleased to offer Vitube tubing made of Dupont Performance Elastomer's Viton synthetic rubber.

    The material provides a wide range of chemical resistance along with superior performance, especially at high temperatures. Applications include fuel and oil lines, chemical transfer, peristaltic pumps, appliances, seals and o-rings, automotive fluids, hot lubrication and solvents.

    Vitube has the flexibility and good mechanical properties of conventional synthetic rubbers, but its heat and chemical resistance go well beyond the range of other rubber materials. Vitube handles temperatures between -30F and 400F (-34C and 204C) and has withstood temperatures as high as 600F (315C) for limited time periods.

    Certain fluids, particularly those that are petroleum based, can act as solvents on rubber, disintegrating the material and leading to tubing failure. Vitube withstands many of these fluids, even when temperatures are elevated. Its performance is something that other rubber materials simply cannot match.

    Vitube is 100%-virgin Viton material and contains no regrind or blends of other elastomers. This purity enables it to provide its outstanding properties and resist:

    - Oils, fuels, lubricants and most mineral acids
    - Aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons such as carbon tetrachloride, benzene, toluene and xylene
    - Sunlight and ozone exposure

    NewAge's Vitube is matte black in color and available in both type A and type B formulations, the latter of which is formulated for peristaltic pump use. Type A offers a Shore A durometer of 75; type B, Shore A durometer 60. Both are stocked in sizes ranging from 1/32" through 7/8" I.D.
