MATERIALS: Suprene thermoplastic rubber (TPR) tubing from NewAge® Industries is manufactured in two grades - FDA and Industrial - and in two hardnesses - 64A and 80A. Its 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 flexibility like rubber but lighter weight, resistance to flex fatigue and tearing and a wide temperature range: -60 to 275F (-51 to 135C). Sizes range from 1/8 to ¾ inch.
