Wholesale Polyethylene Tubing
Poly tubing, often referred to as PE tubing or polyethylene tubing is a flexible, lightweight, durable and corrosion resistant plastic that can be used for a wide range of liquid, gas and fluid transfer applications. Poly tubing is also FDA approved for use in food and beverage applications. Polyethylene tube is completely safe and is one of the most common PE tubing materials in the world.
Freelin-Wade is one of the leading polyethylene tubing suppliers in the nation.

Literature and Additional Information
Polyethylene Tubing OptionsEven though it is not as flexible as polyurethane, polyethylene still provides excellent moisture protection and resistance from cracks and puncture related problems. Due to its strength and durability, polyethylene is often used to create plastic bottles as well as corrosion-resistant pipes. At Freelin-Wade, we are one of the biggest polyethylene tubing suppliers in the nation. We can provide both LLDPE tubing and Liquiflex POE tubing in a wide range of materials and sizes.
Linear Low Density PolyethyleneFreelin-Wade’s linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) tubing provides increased flexibility, tensile strength and conformability over standard polyethylene tube. It is known for its environmental stress crack resistance (ESCR) and puncture resistance. LLDPE tube is impermeable to gases and moisture.
Liquiflex POE TubingIn addition to LLDPE tubes, we also offer a more flexible poly tubing product called Liquiflex. Liquiflex offers three highly beneficial qualities in one tube: chemical resistance equal to polyethylene, flexibility on par with polyurethane, and excellent memory. Liquiflex can be made into self-storing, retractable coils just like polyurethane and nylon.
Liquiflex POE tubing material comes from the same family of polymers as polyethylene and polypropylene, and is ideal for fluid handling, low pressure applications, or anywhere users need flexibility and FDA compliance.
PE Tube Advantages
Our LLDPE polyethylene tubing and Liquiflex POE tubing products provide efficient, clean fluid handling capabilities for hospitals, research laboratories, food and beverage manufacturers, agriculture, and more. Some of the direct benefits of utilizing PE tubing for your next project, include:
- Resists cracking
- Impermeable to gas and moisture
- Corrosion resistant
- Ideal for fluid-handling applications
- Puncture resistant
Differences Between Polyurethane & Polyethylene TubingPolyurethane is a highly stretchable material. It provides excellent flexibility, heat resistance and cracking and puncture protection, which means that it is highly useful for applications that must withstand harsh environments. Conversely, polyethylene provides increased moisture protection, while maintaining good strength and durability features. Since it is FDA approved, poly tubing is often used within the food and beverage industries.
FDA Compliant Polyethylene TubeFor 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 in low-pressure applications.
