Customized Flexible Plastic Tubing
Made from molten polymer plastic fed through a customized die, custom plastic tubing is used in many different industries including medical, food and beverage, automotive and construction. Plastic tubing can also be useful for home projects.
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.

Customized Plastic Tubing from Freelin-WadeFreelin-Wade specializes in custom plastic tubing to make projects easier and more cost-effective for our customers. We offer more than 4,000 standard tubing, hose, and accessories conveniently ready to ship within 24 hours, and endless customizations to meet your application needs.
Each plastic tube begins as hundreds of small resin pellets. These pellets are fed into an extruder and melted together at various temperatures throughout the machine. The molten plastic is then processed thru a customized die to create your desired shape. When the color, size, and shape reach the desired dimensions, the tubing is fed through a trough of cold water to set. What is produced is customized plastic tubing that meets the customer’s specifications.
Custom Flexible Plastic Tubing Options
Plastic Tubing Material CustomizationBeyond our standard stock of flexible materials such as nylon, vinyl, polyurethane, and polyethylene, we use 13 other resin formulas for customization. Whether you need a material that is fire-retardant or medical grade, you can choose your custom tubing to meet the heat, strength, and durability requirements of your project. Bundled plastic tubes help save space and reduce installation time and provide protection for individual pieces of wire or plastic tubing. Plastic tube bundling can combine tubing and electrical wiring or cabling and helps provide resistance to water, chemicals and oils, and provide protection against damage corrosion. Bundling is also used for color coding and organizing plastic tubing systems.
Jacketed Plastic TubingJacketing offers another way to organize your tubing with a cleaner, more user-friendly experience. We offer expandable webbing and spiral wrapping, and can also bundle together assorted sizes, materials, colors and colors with our PVC jacketed extruded bundles. Freelin-Wade has developed a process for jacketing longer lengths and can also bundle wire and tubes together.
