Suitable for extreme temperatures from -120° to 450° F (-84° to 232° C).

Static Conductive Channel Tubing
Top

Control static charges without the risk of wires contaminating your product. FDA-acceptable inside and outside product contact surfaces. Make cut-to-length
static-conductive sleeves quickly and easily. No static, no static worries! Our Unique static-conductive layer is an integral component of the tubing wall circumference.
Static conductive layer offers surface resistance of <.01 megOhms. Simply push a metal clip into each end and connect to metal spouting. Static-conductive
channel is located under the branding strip on the outside of the tubing.

Available in two designs: 25 psi pressure rated hose, and lighter weight non-pressure rated flexible tubing.

Both feature a 1/8″ (3.2mm) thick, white FDA-acceptable rubber tube and grey neoprene cover.
Choose from the following tubing compounds to meet your application requirements:

If you looking for a non-FDA option Black Static-conductive Neoprene Tubing is for you. N55C is a high grade Neoprene rubber compound formulated to provide the properties of Neoprene – moderate oil resistance in addition to resistance to the elements. The incorporation of special black fillers provides a high level of electrical conductivity in the finished products as well as abrasion resistance. The compound is rated “conductive”.
