Plastic Tube – Polyethylene, nylon and polyurethane conforming to the tolerances shown below. For soft tubing or thin wall tube we recommend the use of tube inserts.
Braided Hoses – Use of Tube to Hose Stems is essential when using braided hoses. Use of clamps to retain braided hoses on barbs is recommended.
Metal Tube (soft) – Brass, copper or mild steel conforming to the tolerances below
Metal Tube (hard) – We do not recommend Super Speedfit fittings for hard metal tubes or chromium plated tubes.
For stainless steel and other polished metal tubes we recommend the use of SuperSeal fittings.
