Along with PVC, Polyethylene is probably the most common flexible tubing. Polyethylene tubing is also referred to as PE and Poly tubing. Along with our Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) tubing, Freelin-Wade also offers a more flexible product called Liquiflex.
Known for its environmental stress crack resistance (ESCR), our LLDPE tubing offers puncture resistance and is impermeable to gasses and moisture.
Our Liquiflex tubing offers chemical resistance just like polyethylene and is also flexible just like polyurethane. Liquiflex offers 2 qualities into 1 tube. Liquiflex comes from the same family of polymers as polyethylene and polypropylene. It is ideal for fluid handling, low-pressure applications or where you need flexibility and FDA compliance. Another feature of Liquiflex is its excellent memory. Liquiflex can be made into self-storing, retractable coils just like polypropylene and nylon.
Uses for Polyethylene Tubing
Polyethylene tubing provides efficient, clean fluid handling to hospitals, research laboratories, food and beverage manufacturers, agriculture and more.
Our catalog includes LLDPE polyethylene tubing and Liquiflex POE tubing.
- Resists cracking
- Impermeable to gas and moisture
- Corrosion resistant
- Ideal for fluid-handling applications
- Puncture resistant
For manufacturers in the food and beverage industry, FDA compliance is vitally important. Polyethylene tubing resists leakage, which in turn helps to prevent contamination. It is ideal for fluid handling, low-pressure applications.
