Air Brake Tubing
Extreme chemical resistance and long term reliability have made Rilsan® and Rilsamid® polyamide resins a first choices in air brake tubing worldwide for decades. Arkema is constantly innovating to keep its leading position, with tailor-made multi-layer constructions to reach higher performance and optimize cost-performance balance.
A typical heavy truck uses approximately 300 meters of air brake tubing (including trailer) to ensure safe and efficient braking during a long service lifetime. These brake tubes operate under alternating conditions of long-lasting positive pressure and are designed to operate safely at high and low temperatures. They are also required to demonstrate tremendous mechanical impact resistance and must resist a wide array of chemicals - most notably the aggressive and corrosive zinc chloride salt, a common ingredient in road salt.
This balance of extreme performance properties makes such tubing also suitable for a wide assortment of heavy duty industrial hydraulic and pneumatic tubing applications.
