Opening heading[edit]

Hydrogen tubing

push-to-connect fittings for ¼” OD flexible tubing. The tubing used should be semi-rigid and be selected based upon permeability of hydrogen gas. Recommended tubing materials include PTFE, polyurethane, polypropylene or PVC. 21:13, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

Merge with Pipe (material)[edit]

Both this article and Pipe (material) state "The terms 'pipe' and 'tubing' are interchangeable." I propose that they both be merged into one article - either this or Pipe or maybe a new one called, e.g., 'Pipe and Tubing'.

Pipe and tubing are almost interchangable, as now stated in 'tubing'. Also, some tubing is square, rectangular and so on. You would be hard pressed to find a square pipe.

Definition and picture[edit]

Definition as stated here on wiki give tube a definition of a hollow cyclinder for fluid flow. However, the picture show pvc tubing to pass electric wire in it.
