NewAge Industries' Hot Bond process joins lengths of reinforced and unreinforced tubing of similar material using heat
NewAge Industries introduces its Hot Bond thermally bonded tubing. The Hot Bond process joins lengths of reinforced and unreinforced tubing of similar material using heat, not leachable adhesives or solvents, for an orderly arrangement. This ribbon of tubing can be used in both new and existing equipment.
Four types of Hot Bond are available. Permanent bond is designed to offer durability; permanently-bonded tubing cannot be separated without being cut. Strippable bond lets the user peel back a section of bonded tubing without the use of tools for fitting attachments. Skip bond alternates sections of bonded tubing with unbonded tubing at specified intervals. Electric Hot Bond is designed to simplify electropneumatic connections by bonding electrical wire or light-duty cable to similar tubing materials, resulting in more manageable installation and servicing processes.
Reinforced and unreinforced tubing of the same plastic material can be bonded together even when varying sizes are involved (some limitations exist). Two or more tubes up to a finished width of 2-1/8 inches can be thermally bonded. Post-bonding fabrication, such as coiling and assembly, is also available.
