Product Features

The Ester-PUR FLEX 85 tubing line is made from an ester based polyurethane resin. This material is much more abrasion and impact resistant than PVC while maintaining flexibility and glass-like clarity. Urethane also possesses a high level of chemical compatibility. Since this is a pure polyurethane resin, it contains no plasticizers and has a very low level of extractables making it a great product for high purity applications. This formulation is NOT recommended for aqueous solutions.

Ester-PUR FLEX 85 Tubing

  • Resistant to atmospheric ozone, aliphatic hydrocarbons and petroleum products
  • Pure polyurethane; contains no plasticizers and low levels of extractables
  • Complies with FDA CFR21 food packaging
  • Tough; resists tearing and abraison
  • Flexible at low teperatures
  • Compliant with REACH, ROHS and Proposition 65 requirements

Typical Applications

  • High-purity applications
  • Fuel lines
  • Instrumentation
  • Cable jacketing
  • Gas sampling lines
  • NOT recommended for use with aqueous solutions
