1. We do not have our original fittings for E-KYT-4.3$\times$6.4, E-KYT-8$\times$10 and E-KYT-1/4"$\times$3/8".
  2. Due to the laminated structure tubing, please use the joints to seal an inner surface of the tubing. Please do not use the joints to seal an outer surface of the tubing. This may result in the bursting or coming off from the tubing.
  3. When you use our products, please refer to "Precautions for Use." ("The Precautions for Use" is also available at the product specifications of E-KYT, which can be downloadable from here.)
  4. In terms of chemical resistance, please refer to "Chemical Resistance Data."
  5. Although the inner layer is resistant to fluids, depending on working environments, the fluids would be permeated through the inner layer, resulting in the danger of swelling and degradation of the middle or outer layer.

Application Examples

Example 1: As a Piping for Sodium Hypochlorite

Company A is looking for a soft, economical tubing that can be used for transferring sodium hypochlorite in the process of disinfection of cut vegetables. A PVC tubing is not allowed to use due to the elution from the PVC tubing to the fluid. Company A finds HAKKO E-KYT and requests a sample. After their sample trial, the result is satisfactory. E-KYT is used as a piping for sterilization of raw vegetables.

Example 2: Tubing as Protective Cover

Company A is looking for something as protective cover for copper wire. Due to the limited budget, protective cover must be a reasonable price. An engineer at Company A found HAKKO E-KYT and requested the sample. E-KYT is soft and easy to use. Besides, E-KYT is made of non-PVC materials and compliant in RoHS 2 requirements. As a result, Company A made a decision that E-KYT can be used as protective cover for copper wire.

Frequently Asked Question

Question: We understand that an inner layer of E-KYT is made of Olefin. What kinds of chemical can be transferred through Olefin?
Answer: Although in terms of chemical resistance, Olefin is lower than Fluorine, some types of chemicals are transferrable. For instance, isopropyl alcohol, phenol, alkali, methanol, ethanol, and sodium hypochlorite are transferrable. (Please note that depending on the other using conditions, those chemicals might not be resistant against Olefin. Please check in advance.)
