Urebrade is reinforced with polyester braid material incorporated within its walls of polyurethane and is naturally transparent. It offers higher pressure capabilities than unreinforced tubing and smooth interior surfaces for unobstructed flow. Durable Urebrade resists moisture, fungi, oils, fuels, and greases, as well as abrasion, impact, vibration, and tearing. This combination of benefits gives Urebrade performance advantages over other plastic and rubber hose and extends its service life, resulting in overall lower costs. Another important feature is that the hose does not contain plasticizer, an ingredient used in some plastic materials to increase their flexibility. Plasticizer can leach out, causing hardening of the hose or contamination. Urebrade's flexibility is innate.
The ether-based polyurethane compound used to make Urebrade is made from non-toxic ingredients conforming to FDA standards and is listed by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF 61) for use with potable water. It is stocked in sizes from 1/4" through 2" I.D, and offers a temperature range between -90°F and 175°F (-67.7°C to 79.4°C). Custom variations of Urebrade, such as thermal hose bonding, special sizes and colors, heat-formed shapes, and cut-to-length pieces, are available, along with NewAge® Industries' unreinforced polyurethane tubing, Superthane®, for less demanding applications.
