KEP’s dipped natural rubber latex tubing is offered in a wide variety of sizes and colors. In addition, KEP manufactures an array of dip molded products produced in both natural rubber and non-latex compounds. KEP manufactures food-grade tubing in the U.S. using FDA, NSF and USP Class VI material compounds to fit customers’ exacting specifications, using either latex or non-latex materials. When creating our natural rubber latex tubing, we use liquid latex to provide the finest physical properties.
KEP manufacturers alternatives to latex or silicone applications. Our thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and thermoplastic vulcanizate (TPV) tubing provide an excellent substitute. Safety and compliance are our key priorities. KEP produces FDA non-latex materials at our SQF-certified food safety extrusion facility in Mogadore, Ohio.
