Thermoplastic Tubing in the Manufacturing Processes
Thermoplastic Tubing Used in Manufacturing Processes
Thermoplastic elastomer tubing is ideal for use in the manufacturing, distribution and industrial industries among many others due to its physical properties which make sterilization easy and allow for the use of higher temperatures without damaging the tubing.
Thermoplastic elastomer tubing has the flexibility of rubber tubing and can be reheated and remolded, however, it also has superior heat and chemical resistant properties that make it more stable when exposed to a broad range of temperatures and other materials.
Thermoplastic Elastomer Tubing Properties
Thermoplastic tubing is fit for use in manufacturing production lines and for a diverse set of industries and many other specialized applications. Resistant to ozone and abrasion, thermoplastic elastomer compounds used for manufacturing tubing retain their physical properties and exhibit thermal stability.
Many of KEP’s specific TPE compounds have an operating temperature of -40 to 195°F and are compatible for fatty food use and hot liquid use. To ensure regulatory compliance, we also offer compounds that are DEHP free, free of animal derivatives, phthalate free, BPA free and with no sources of BSE or TSE.
