Value-Tube™ and Imbibe™ Product Line Merger

Value-Tube™ and Imbibe™ Product Lines Have Merged

Beginning in 2018, ATP began the process of merging Value-Tube™ and Imbibe™ product lines into one. The merged product line will remain as Value-Tube™.

This effort was done as a way to simplify ordering and inventory of product. Select sizes of Value-Tube™ are now NSF 61° Certified for use with potable drinking water.

White colored tubing is now available in the Value-Tube™ product line.

When ordering under the Imbibe™ product line, Value-Tube™ branded and part numbered products will be shipped.

Polyethylene Tubing is a economical method of transferring fluid or air in a wide-variety of standard pressure and temperature situations. PE tubing can be used with barbed, push-to-connect, or compression fittings; ensuring suitability in a multitude of applications.

Product Focus Friday: MonoShield Single-Core Weld Spatter Tubing

MonoShield™ Single-Core Weld Spatter Tubing

MonoShield™ Single-Core Weld Spatter Tubing is specially formulated polyurethane tubing that is intended for environments with welding operations. This tubing is resistant to indirect exposure to weld sparks.

MonoShield™ is tested to UL94VO flame-tested specifications. Compatible with push-to-connect, hose barb and compression fittings the 98A durometer MonoShield™ is very versatile.

MonoShield™ differs from traditional weld-spatter tubing in that it does not require a jacket to be stripped away, simplifying installation. Traditional weld-spatter tubing has a jacket covering its inner core; installation necessitates the delicate and time consuming stripping of a casing.

Product Focus Friday: Custom Tubing Capabilities

ATP’s Custom Tubing Capabilities

Do you have a special application?

ATP can manufacture custom tubing and spiral assemblies for your needs.

Pictured below is a triple bonded tube assembly, used in the car wash industry to apply three different colors of foam. Traditionally, installers would apply cable ties to three separate tubes. A custom assembly such as this will not only make for a clean, snag-free install, but it also adds value in decreased installation times.


ATP has the following customizing capabilities:

  • Multiple Tube Bonding
  • Custom Diameter Tubing
  • Custom Cut Lengths
  • Custom-Sized Spirals
  • Custom Fitting Assembly

The first thought after mentioning anything custom is “expensive”, but that may not be true. By adding a custom configuration to a manufactured assembly, labor time can be reduced.

Here’s an example: A manufacturer requires a section of tubing be cut to a specific length before being installed. This process requires personnel in a factory to process tubing from bulk rolls into the desired lengths before installing. ATP is able to provide a finished, ready to install item that does not require any extra processing by the OEM user. There are no extra processes or stock to maintain.

Product Focus Friday: Safety-Slide™ Full-Flow Safety Couplings

Safety-Slide™ Full-Flow Safety Couplings

The Safety-Slide™ increases workplace safety and air tool performance in a compact and lightweight package.

The patented locking mechanism of the Safety-Slide™ eliminates the valve observed in traditional coupling designs. The elimination of this valve provides downstream air tools with unrestricted compressed air supply.

Connecting and disconnecting the Safety-Slide™ is accomplished under zero pressure by pivoting the plug within the coupling. The Safety-Slide’s design eliminates the loud rush of air experienced when disconnecting air tools or sections of hose, minimizing hose whip and hearing damage.

All Safety-Slide™ Couplings are chrome-plated for easy clean-up in automotive or paint settings, and are available in multiple sizes.
