    IS it aluminium?

    If you can use copper,its around, but in 1/4",which is around 6.3mm from memory.

    Hi,

    Yes it looks like something between alloy and lead as it's very brittle ans soft. If I can just find a place where I could by 200mm....

    cheers

    Did you ask Enzed or Pirtek about nylon? I bought some from one of the them for P38A EAS air lines.

    If you can't find any, I can send you some.

    Hi, i bought some nylon 6mm, unfortunately the fitting on the non return valve is not a compression type. Instead the alloy was flanged out and fits without a compression fitting. Iíll go down and add a pick in a bit.

    We use something similar on magnahelic gauges,its aluminium.

    But i need to measure it to see if its 6mm or 1/4 inch.They do have a similar fitting for the end,but don't know if its the same as yours.

    Is yours exactly 6mm?

    Sure can - heat gun. Nylon is a thermoplastic and can be reshaped pretty much endlessly - but get it too hot and it becomes a blob pretty easily. Heat it gently and push it onto something that has that shape - when it cools, it will stay that way. It wonít lose strength doing this and will take the pressure no problems.

    You might find that bit of pipe will get too hot for the nylon and end up blowing out
