TruDesign fittings eliminate the corrosion and electrical bonding problems associated with metallic fittings
TruDesign Nylon Tail Straight Barb Female
TruDesign 90° Nylon Tail Straight Barb NPS Female Thread Fittings are molded from a glass-reinforced nylon composite. High strength, high-modulus glass fibers within the material provide dramatic strength, stiffness, toughness, and dimensional stability. TruDesign Tails Barb BPS Female Threaded Fittings eliminate the corrosion and electrical bonding problems associated with metallic fittings. Tails (Hose barbs) are designed for twin hose clamps and to never crush.
- Manufactured from a glass-reinforced nylon composite – High strength and lightweight
- Immune to corrosion and electrolysis – Long life with no concerns over decreased performance due to corrosion
- Chemical resistant – Unaffected by diesel, petrol, or chemicals
- UV resistant – Will not degrade or discolor with ultraviolet light from the sun
- High-quality surface finish – Will not discolor with green film as similar bronze fittings do
- Parallel BSP or NPS threads – Universal compatibility with TruDesign fittings, and other common marine components
- Large operating temperature range – Suitable for all marine environments, from -40°C to +110°C
The connecting thread type is BSP and clearly marked on the side of the fitting along with size. Do not over tighten, simply allow the adhesive sealant to provide the seal and orientation of the fitting. Apply twin hose clamps for a secure hose connection and check tightness regularly.
Thread sealing options: – 3M 5200 – 3M 5200FT (fast cure) – Sikaflex 291i – Sikaflex 591 – Loctite 5331 – Loctite 55 Pipe Sealing Chord – PTFE Thread Tape
TruDesign fittings (in both black and white) are suitable for contact with petrol & diesel fuels. However, TruDesign Ball Valves, Aquavalves, and Non-Return Valves should not be used in direct contact with petrol or diesel as the nitrile o-rings may swell affecting their sealing and handle-turning performance.
