that can vary greatly. it all depends on the material and the wall thickness.

I'd say the wall thickness is at least a mm, just used it at 60 psi and it work fine and have used it at 125 as I have said before.

I got it at homedepot and it didn't say anything it came coiled up and attached with a cardboard thing, i even checked in the store and it didn't say anything except "not for use with icemaker" on the tube.
