Low-Density Polyethylene LDPE and Linear Low-Density Polyethylene LLDPE tubing are used in a broad array of applications including cable jacketing, chemical conveyance, pneumatic and air lines, beverage/ food processing, and potable water systems.
LDPE or LLDPE?
Both have excellent flex life, but TBL’s LLDPE tubing is recommended whenever exceptional environmental stress-cracking resistance ESCR is required and for applications where push-on fittings are used. Also, LLDPE has a slightly higher pressure rating than LDPE, but LDPE is slightly more flexible.
FDA Approved Material
TBL’s LDPE and LLDPE materials are available as FDA approved under FDA 21 CFR 177.1520 and FDA 21 CFR 176.170 for food contact, drugs, and cosmetics. 13 Colors in Stock and Custom Sizes
Color coding is commonly used to identify various chemical or air lines within a facility or process. However, most manufacturers offer less than 6 colors, limiting the user’s choices. In TBL’s constant effort to differentiate ourselves from the competition, TBL Plastics offers thirteen colors. In addition, if you have a custom color TBL can probably run it.
