Natural Latex Rubber Tubing from NewAge® Industries Provides Flexibility, Resiliency, and a Smooth Surface

Press release date: Aug 27, 2002

An Excellent Choice for Repetitious Bending and Stretching

Southampton, PA - Flexible NEWTEX latex tubing is immediately available from NewAge® Industries, Inc. Initially used mainly in the healthcare industry, its benefits have enabled the product to expand into the food, toy, instrumentation, sporting goods, and other fields.

Applications for NEWTEX tubing are quite varied and include medical drains, dental and medical connector lines, slingshots, photographic chemical transfer, exercise devices, tourniquet bands, non-aerosol can filler lines, vibration insulators, 0-ring gaskets, model glider launching, and more.

Manufactured from pure, liquid, latex rubber and available in its natural, translucent-amber color, NEWTEX features these important benefits:
  • Excellent memory, even after repeated stretching
  • Natural flexibility-no plasticizers that can leach into critical streams
  • A unique dip manufacturing method produces a seamless, uniform tube with a very smooth surface
  • Non-toxic ingredients conform to FDA standards
  • Sterilizable for repeated use

    An important advantage of NEWTEX over other tubing materials is its flexibility at low temperatures. The product's general temperature use ranges from -60°F (-51°C) to 180°F (82°C). While other materials may handle temperatures lower than NEWTEX, their flexibility at those low figures is often dramatically reduced.

    NEWTEX is stocked in 18 sizes ranging from 1/16" to 3/4" I.D. Options include custom colors and sizes, cut pieces, synthetic NEWTEX for improved translucency, and a vacuum-rated version.
