Polyethylene tubing is also referred to as PE and Poly tubing. Along with our Linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) tubing, Freelin-Wade also offers 2 similar polyethylene products: Liquiflex and Polypropylene.
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. Liquiflx 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.
Polypropylene is also flexible. When tested in harsh environments, polypropylene resisted stress cracking and held out moisture. Our poly tubing is low cost, but incredibly light weight and extremely strong .
