Synflex® Solstice™ air-brake tubing, made
from proprietary thermoplastics, helps alleviate the supply chain volatility of
traditional nylon raw materials used in the manufacture of traditional air-brake
tubing. This highly engineered thermoplastic monowall tubing meets the performance of
SAE J844, J1131, J2494-3, D.O.T. FMVSS 106 and OEM customer requirements for
use on truck and trailer airbrake and auxiliary air-systems.
partner, the Synflex Eclipse, has superior abrasion resistance and
significantly outperforms rubber and nylon11. This results in a longer service
life in even the harshest of environments.
to cut, Eclipse, multi-layered air-brake tubing promotes burr free cuts, which
leads to improved assemblies with either push-to-connect or compression
fittings. Has improved flexibility over other nylon tubing. This means easier
installation and handling at low temperatures. Improved flow performance over
traditional rubber and nylon, Eclipse air-brake tubing enhances timing
Solstice and Eclipse tubing meet all of the
performance criteria established in the trucking industry. Because they are
made from entirely different raw materials, Solstice and Eclipse tubing are not expected to be subject to the
supply chain disruptions of nylon that has created challenges for customers
Solstice and Eclipse tubing have
an operating temperature range of -40° C to 93° C (-40° F to 200° F), are UV stabilized, thermoformable and
available in both standard and custom colors. Solstice and Eclipse tubing can
be supplied as formed tube, formed and straight air-brake harness assemblies
and on reels in lengths up to 304.8 meters (1,000 feet).
accompanying 1800 brass D.O.T. connectors are easy to use, fast to assemble,
come in one-piece fittings and reusable field serviceable. Meets D.O.T. FMVSS
571.106 and SAE J1131 air-brake system performance requirements.
