How and Where are Push-to-Connect Fittings Used

Push-to-Connect fittings are typically made of a glass reinforced thermoplastic or nickel-plated brass. They are commonly used with polyurethane or nylon tubing. However, some applications using brass Push-to-Connect may call for brass tubing and provide excellent leak-free and secure connections for gas, air or liquid flow line pneumatic applications. They are available in both Imperial and Metric sizes. Additionally, stainless steel Push-to-Connect fittings are used in special applications requiring increased durability, while providing good corrosion resistance.
