Designed and made in New Zealand, TruDesign® Tail Long Thread 120° fittings are the superior composite connection for fitting hose to threaded fittings. TruDesign® Tail Long Thread 120°s are moulded from a glass-reinforced nylon composite. High strength, high-modulus glass fibres within the material provide dramatic strength, stiffness, toughness, and dimensional stability. TruDesign® fittings eliminate the corrosion and electrical bonding problems associated with metallic fittings. Tail fittings are designed for twin hose clamps, and to never crush.Manufactured from a glass-reinforced nylon composite - High strength and light weightImmune to corrosion and electrolysis Long life with no concerns over decreased performance due to corrosion. No bonding requiredChemical resistant Impervious to diesel, petrol and antifouling paintsUV resistant Will not degrade or discolour with ultraviolet light from the sunHigh quality surface finish Will not discolour with green film as similar bronze fittings doBSP Parallel (Parallel) threads Universal compatibility to TruDesign® Ball Valves, threaded fittings, and other marine componentsLarge operating temperature range Suitable for all marine environments, from -20°C to +100°C
Specifications:Threads on the Tail Long Thread 120°s are BSP Parallel (British Standard Pipe Parallel). TruDesign® parallel threads are designed so that sealant or PTFE thread tape is applied, and then the fitting screwed into place. A main advantage of parallel threads versus tapered threads is that there is far greater engagement between two mating parallel threads which in turn provides maximum strength and watertight sealing ability. Since sealing is achieved through use of a sealant or thread tape, fittings can be positioned anywhere around 360°, unlike tapered fittings that need to be fully tightened in order to seal.Do not use with tapered thread valves or fittings - Mixing parallel and tapered threads can cause strength and sealing problems as the thread engagement is often only a few turns. Tapered threads should never be used in marine applications.
