Extraflexible Altylon Nylon Tube

Extraflexible Altylon (Nylon 6.10 tubing)

Extraflexible Altylon nylon tubing is a true alternative to crude oil based engineering plastics.

ALTX is manufactured from Nylon 6.10, 60% of which is produced from the seeds of the castor oil plant, offering the optimum blend of performance, availability and sustainability.

It answers the increasing demand for renewably sourced polymers, with high technical performance that can be used for critical polyamide applications.
