Wholesale Polyethylene TubingLinear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) is blended form of LDPE that offers improved flexibility, tensile strength and conformability compared to standard polyethylene tubing. Freelin-Wade is a premier supplier of high-quality, long-lasting LLDPE tubing. Our pneumatic LLDPE tubing can withstand 500-plus hours of exposure to IGEPAL solution, per ASTM D-1693 ESCR tests. All colors of Freelin-Wade LLDPE tubing comply with FDA regulation 21 CFR 177.1520(c) for food contact applications. We can fill low-volume and high-volume orders of standard and custom LLDPE tubing.

Literature and Additional Information
Why Choose LLDPE Tubing Over Standard LDPEPneumatic LLDPE tubing’s greatest advantage over standard low density polyethylene (LDPE) is its superior environmental crack resistance, or ESCR. LLDPE ultimately offers greater flexibility and greater stretch consistency than LDPE materials, which is how it can withstand heavy impact damage.
As the most flexible of the plastic sheeting films, LLDPE provides superior environmental crack resistance, or ESCR, and increased softness and pliability. Additional advantages of LLDPE tubing over standard LDPE tubing include:
- Superior Stress and Crack Resistance
- Greater Tensile Strength
- Higher Burst Pressure
- Improved Impact Resistance
- Higher Puncture Resistance
- Superior Dielectric Properties
- Greater Puncture Resistance
Linear Low Density Tubing Additional AdvantagesLLDPE plastic products also provide good chemical resistance and protection against stress cracking. LLDPE tubing can also resist cracking when used with compression or push-to-connect fittings. Our LLDPE base resin is approved by the FDA for use with food and beverage. It is impermeable to gasses and moisture and is tasteless and odorless. Freelin-wade can supply lightweight LLDPE tubing in several colors, including black, gray, red, green, blue, yellow, orange, clear and purple.
