A resin tube is made of plastic. Materials include polyolefin, polyurethane, and fluoropolymers. The durability, chemical resistance, and hardness of tubing vary depending on the material and thickness, so the appropriate tubing is selected according to the application.
A resin tube is used to transport chemicals at various manufacturing sites for pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and inorganic materials. They also have excellent electrical insulation properties and are used to coat conductors. Although ordinary tubing tends to be electrically charged, some resin tubes have been developed with conductive properties.
Resin tubes are used in a variety of applications. In the manufacturing field, resin tubing is used to transport raw materials, organic solvents, water, and other chemicals. In the research field, they are also used in the lines of circulating constant-temperature chambers used in evaporators. Some resins have excellent heat resistance, and such resins are also used as vapor transfer tubes.
In addition, because of its insulating properties, resin is also used to protect and coat conductors and to insulate wiring. On the other hand, since ordinary resin tubes are susceptible to static electricity, conductive resin tubes are also used in fields where static electricity is not desired, such as in the semiconductor industry, where conductive substances are blended into the tubes to prevent static electricity.
The characteristics of a resin tube vary depending on the material. Polyurethane tubing is soft and bendable. They have low resistance to organic solvents and are used for transporting water or air. Polyolefin tubing is hard, water-resistant, and can be used with some types of organic solvents. Fluoropolymer resin tubes are available in various types, such as PFA, PTFE, and FEP, and are basically resistant to a wide range of chemicals, including acids, bases, and organic solvents. The hardness also varies depending on the material and model number.
Resin tubes may have additives, such as plasticizers added to improve bendability and processability. Depending on the type of chemical to be transferred, the elution of additives may occur, so it is advisable to check before using resin tubes at the manufacturing site to prevent contamination of the product. In addition, if resin tubes are used for a long period, they may deteriorate gradually and crack, so it is important to inspect them periodically and replace them when necessary.
