SMC Pneumatics Series TUZ Wear Resistant Tubing

TUZ wear resistant tubing from SMC Pneumatics is a standardization of the X73 option for series TU polyurethane. By incorporating fluoropolymer additives with their polyurethane resin, SMC has created a tubing that has the flexibility and other performance properties of polyurethane with an increased abrasion resistance. This feature can help extend the life of tubing in many dynamic applications where the tubing may come in contact with other tubing, wires, or fixtures such as in a cable carrier. Another benefit of the additive and abrasion resistance is that the tubing is not “sticky” like normal polyurethane and can be easily …
