Quality, custom compounds behind every product.
KEP offers custom compounds that make our products durable and long-lasting. We offer compounds with specific characteristics, such as:
- Safe for use in medical applications
- Stand up to repeated food service tasks, like serving cheese or condiments
- Containing X-ray absorbing properties
- Provide protection from ozone and UV light exposure
These are just a few of KEP custom compound capabilities. Tell us how your custom tubing product must perform – and we’ll help identify the compound to assure that performance.
