5/16 inch LLDPE polyethylene tubing is used for hot and cold water applications, beverage dispensing, home reverse osmosis or pneumatic applications. Our tubes are made from FDA compliant materials and comply with NSF International Standard 51 & 61 certified. Our tubes offer excellent resistance to environmental stress cracking as measured by ASTM D-1693.
Important Information: LLDPE tubing is not recommended for mineral oils, gases and fuels or high pressure pneumatic / compressed air systems. LLDPE tubing is suitable for pneumatic applications providing a maximum pressure of 150 psi at 20 ° C. At high temperatures of 50 ° C +, mineral oil degrades LLDPE tubes and therefore should be checked periodically and replaced if necessary.
