FEP Chemical Resistant Plastic Tubing

FEP tubing is designed with enhanced chemical resistance with advanced gas and vapor permeability properties and excellent UV transmission ratings. FEP delivers a combination of high heat resistance, chemical resistance and affordability, Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) is a smart option that offers an abundance of beneficial features. FEP tubing from Freelin-Wade is available in a wide variety of packaged lengths, Key benefits include:
  • Close to no moisture absorption
  • Easy to clean
  • Ideal for food contact applications
  • A wide temperature range means that it can be used in harsh environments where you may have never considered plastic tubing before
  • Flexibility that makes it is easy to install in nearly any application
  • An economical alternative to Teflon® tubing
  • FDA approved
  • Class VI compliant

Polyethylene Chemical Resistant Tubing

Polyethylene is one of the most common tubing material in the world. Freelin-Wade’s LLDPE (linear low density) tubing has superior environmental stress crack resistance compared to to the standard LDPE (low density) products. LLDPE tubing is flexible, lightweight, durable and corrosion resistant plastic that can be used for a wide range of liquid, gas, and fluid transfer applications. Some of the direct benefits of utilizing LLDPE tubing for your next project, include: 
  • Enhanced chemical resistance
  • Impermeable to gas and moisture
  • Resists cracking
  • Flexible
  • Puncture resistant
  • FDA approved

PVC Chemical Resistant Tubing

Poly-vinyl Chloride (PVC) is possibly the most versatile product from the chemical industry. It's used extensively in construction from siding, to wire insulation, to window frames to pipe. With the addition of a plasticizer, the compound becomes quite flexible and an excellent material for clear tubing. Freelin-Wade's non-reinforced tubing is produced from resisn that contain no phthalates! PVC tubing is lightweight, extremely flexible, and has other beneficial qualities including:
  • Chemical resistant
  • Translucent for easy monitoring of fluid flow
  • Gamma and EtO sterilizable
  • Smooth, polished inner wall prevents sediment accumulation
  • Chemically compatible with most gases, fuels, oils, and low-grade acids
  • Securely grips barbed fittings
  • FDA approved
  • Class VI compliant

Nylon Chemical Resistant Tubing

Chemical resistant nylon plastic tubing (polyamide tubing) can withstand higher temperatures and pressures than many other types of chemical resistant tubing. The unique material structure of the nylon plastic tubing allows it to maintain exceptional chemical, abrasion, impact, and moisture resistance and dimensional stability. Additional benefits include:
  • Chemical resistance
  • Stress-cracking resistance
  • Smaller bend radius
  • Temperature resistance

Kynar® PVDF Chemical Resistant Tubing

Kynar® is the ideal option for chemical resistance applications that do not require heat resistance.  Kynar possesses excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals and is the perfect tubing option for a variety of applications requiring an odorless and tasteless tube. Chemical resistance advantages include:
  • Resists numerous chemicals
  • Sterilizable by gamma radiation
  • Resists fungal growth
  • Low out-gassing
  • FDA approved
  • Class VI compliant

Custom Chemical Resistant Tubing Options

While standard plastic tubing comes in pre-made dimensions and shapes, custom tubing provides greater utility. By customizing the material, size, and profile, plastic tubes become more efficient, cost-effective, and versatile. Freelin-Wade is also the industry’s fastest custom color producer. We offer 28 standard colors and are able to custom match or create any color your project requires by simply using any Pantone® color or a color swatch.
