Plastic flex tubing is used in a wide variety of industries, such as agriculture, life sciences, pharmaceuticals, laboratory, and medicine. Applications include blood and fluid handling, pumps, electrical and thermal insulation, analytical systems, and food and beverage handling. Plastic flex tubing is characterized by a round shape, a hollow center, and a bend radius (flexibility). It is crimp-resistant and durable.

Plastic industrial wall tubing is used for transferring liquids, air, or solids, and it is often manufactured for specific applications in the agricultural, electrical, automotive, construction, and laboratory industries among others. Plastic industrial wall tubing is characterized by a round shape, a hollow center, and a greater wall thickness (commonly 1/16” to 1”) and hardness than other tubing types. It offers impact resistance and durability.

Plastic thin wall tubing is used to transfer air, liquids, or solids in the electrical, bio-medical, surgical, chemical, and agricultural industries. It can be used in medical devices, high-temperature industrial equipment, capacitor covers, and electrical insulators. Plastic thin wall tubing is characterized by a thin wall thickness (commonly 1/32” to 1/8”) and a round shape. It is stiffer than flex and hollow bar tubing.

Plastic hollow bar tubing is often manufactured for specific machine applications, and is used to transfer liquids, non-pressurized air, or solids in the laboratory, chemical, pharmaceutical, electrical, and biotechnology industries. Plastic hollow bar tubing is rigid, has a hollow center, and can come in a variety of shapes, such as square, rectangular, or round.

Plastic heavy wall tubing is used for transferring liquids, air, or solids, and it is often applied in the industrial, automotive, electrical, laboratory, and food and beverage industries. It can be used in electrical insulators, fluid handling, UV transmission, and high-temperature applications. Plastic heavy wall tubing is characterized by a round shape, hollow center, and non-reactive material construction.
