Plastic FEP Tubing

Click image to enlarge
FEP (Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene) is a semi-clear tubing product that maintains its strength and benefits in a wide range of temperatures and conditions. FEP tubing is designed with enhanced chemical resistance with advanced gas and vapor permeability properties and excellent UV transmission ratings. FEP tubing also provides increased clarity over PTFE with a higher coefficient of friction and lower continuous service temperature.

Freelin-Wade provides FEP, fluorinated ethylene propylene tubing for your specific design requirement needs. We can provide FEP plastic tubing in various sizes, and lengths, with custom sizes available upon request. Contact us to learn more about our FEP tubing options, or call us at 888-373-9233 to discuss your project’s specifications.

FEP Plastic Tubing Features

FEP tubing material is a transparent thermoplastic tubing product that exhibits several unique features that allows it to be used in industries throughout the world. Some of the distinctive features that FEP plastic tubing displays include:
  • 100% virgin-grade, high-performance resins designed to resist stress cracking
  • High thermal stability
  • Superior electrical insulation properties
  • Chemically inert to most industrial chemicals and solvents

Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene Tubing Advantages

When you’re looking for 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. It is a solid alternative to Teflon tubing and can be made into self-retracting coils. 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

High-temperature FEP plastic tubing is a cost-effective choice for applications requiring heat-resistant tubing. High-temp plastic tubing is ideal for lab applications, medical devices, and chemical processing. 

FEP Plastic Tubing Applications

FEP tubing is often used where exceptional chemical resistance is essential to project success or where working at extremely lower temperatures is desired. Some of the industries that benefit from the use of FEP tubing include:
  • Electronics
  • Aerospace
  • Transportation technology
  • Chemicals
  • Food processing
  • Environmental sciences
  • Pharmaceutical manufacturing
  • Food Grade FEP Tubing

If you’re in the food and beverage industry, consider FEP tubing for your manufacturing systems. Because FEP is clean and absorbs very little moisture, it is an excellent food-grade tubing.
