Rubber & Latex Tubing & More | KEP

Rubber Tubing

Rubber tubing works behind the scenes in a wide range of industries. We rely on tubing during so many of life’s moments, from family bonding at the big game to important doctor’s visits. Durable, reliable tubing keeps your operation running smoothly so you can focus on running your business. 

Here at KEP, we know how much the products you use to keep business running matter to your customers. That’s why we never settle for less than perfection. 

Colored Rubber Tubing 

KEP offers a range of colored rubber tubing, including… 

  • fluorescents
  • pearlescents
  • mattes
  • amber
  • white

Looking for something a little more specific? KEP can tweak existing color formulas for a custom prototype or product. Bring us your challenge, and we will consult with you on how to achieve the best tubing color for your needs. After a thorough trial and error color matching process, we’ll send you a sample for approval. 

Why does tubing color matter?

Apart from aesthetic preference, the color you choose for your latex rubber tubing matters. Color is especially important when it comes to UV stability. 

So, what are the best colors to use if you need your tubing to be UV stable? Fluorescent colors, like KEP’s range of fluorescent tubing, and whites are particularly good at promoting UV resistance. 

When your tubing is UV resistant you can avoid degradation due to sun exposure. This makes our fluorescent tubing one of our most popular color choices as customers seek to prolong the lifespan of their tubing
