TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES unveils eco-friendly tubes for industrial applications

TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES, a specialist in flexible hoses for industry, will launch the innovative BBIO Universal TECALEMIT® tube, which is made from plastics of 100% biological origin and has technical qualities superior to tubes fabricated using petrochemical-industry products. The company will unveil the tube at the MIDEST trade show which will take place from 6 to 9 November in the Paris region of France.

TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES, a flexible-hose specialist that is based in France, will unveil a new tube for industry, the BBIO Universal TECALEMIT®. The tube, made from plastics of 100% biological origin, boasts technical qualities superior to those fabricated using materials from the petrochemical industry, but with the same production costs. BBIO Universal TECALEMIT® will be launched at MIDEST, a leading trade show for the industrial-subcontracting sector which will take place in the Paris region of France, from 6 to 9 November 2012.

The BBIO Universal TECALEMIT® tube is made from 100% polyamide Rilsan® T. The oil that is produced from grinding castor oil seeds is Rilsan® T's only component after both synthesis and polymerisation. This manufacturing process generates much less CO² and fewer greenhouse gases than in the production of polymers in the petrochemical industry.

In addition to this ecological benefit, the mechanical, physical and thermal advantages of TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES' tubes are also more significant than those fabricated using petrochemicals. This is because the company's tubes boast a higher operating pressure, improved flexibility and greater impact resistance than those made from traditional synthetic polymers.

Lightweight and impermeable, BBIO Universal TECALEMIT® tubes are resistant to abrasion and negative pressure, generating only very low pressure losses. Furthermore, the tubes are robust and therefore durable, which results in economic advantages for BBIO Universal TECALEMIT® users.

TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES tubes are also highly resistant to chemical agents, hydrocarbons and zinc chloride, even at low temperatures. A certain swelling may occur in aromatic hydrocarbons and alcohol, but this is without damage to the material.

The BBIO Universal TECALEMIT® tubes are rigorously calibrated and are available in various diameters, as well as in an assortment of colours. The tubes are produced in long lengths and are packed in sachets, boxes or reels of multiple 25-metre lengths.


Since 1961, TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES has specialised in manufacturing pneumatic tubes for all engineering industries, providing solutions for transporting hydraulic fluids, as well as different kinds of connectivity.

TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES' products are supplied by a network of exclusive distributors that guarantee quality.

TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES will exhibit its new product, the BBIO Universal TECALEMIT® tube, at the MIDEST trade show for the industrial-subcontracting sector. The trade fair will take place at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre from 6 to 9 November 2012 in the Paris region (France).

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
