Polyethylene Tubing (PE)

Polyethylene Tubing

Polyethylene tubing offered by SPS is produced from 100% virgin, low-density polyethylene resin and comes in seven brilliant hues: red, yellow, orange, green, blue, black and white. It has superior working pressure and acts as an excellent metal tubing alternative.

Our polyethylene tubing is a chemically inert, non-contaminating translucent tube that meets FDA standards, making it an ideal choice for laboratory, hospital, food and beverage applications. It also has exceptional stability, long life and resistance to corrosion which makes it well suited for use with pneumatic controls, instrumentation and hydraulic applications.

PE is available in strippable, Siamese, and multiple-bore configurations which reduce installation time and encourage the production of neat layouts in multiline systems. It can also be custom formulated for electrical conductive properties, weather or fungus resistance and is also available as a coextruded liner material in applications where additional flexibility is required without sacrificing inertness.
