NewAge Industries” custom tubing, hose, and assemblies address individual application requirements to provide less waste, labor, and cost than stocked tubing and hose. Types of customization include hose assemblies, thermal tube bonding, special compounding and colors, coiling, heat-formed parts, adjusted wall dimensions, overbraiding and jacketing, printing, cut-to-length pieces, slitting, hole punching, and packaging. Assemblies are available with all sorts of hose, including stainless steel overbraided PTFE, reinforced PVC and silicone, and polyurethane. A variety of fittings are also available, including sanitary styles attached by clamps or crimped-on collars for permanency. Other custom options, such as custom compounding (blending additives into the raw plastic material), permit fine-tuning of plastics to meet special performance requirements. The need for low temperature flexibility, improved elasticity, U.V. stabilization, or decreased tack can be addressed. Overbraiding and jacketing protect tubing and hose from abrasion, heat, kinking, or chemical attack. Services like printing and striping identify tubing and hose with information such as sizes, performance capabilities and limitations, company recognition, or part numbers. Cut-to-length pieces can reduce labor costs for the customer, as the cutting can often be done at the end of the production line immediately following manufacture. Orders may be shipped in boxes of a specified size, by weight, or with a certain number of cut pieces bagged together and then boxed.
