NewAge Industries”offers two types of polyethylene tubing — a linear low-density formulaand a style co-extruded with EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate). While bothare made from nontoxic ingredients conforming to FDA standards, theyoffer different performance characteristics. Uses include air lines,chemical and fluid transfer, food and beverage processing anddistribution, pharmaceutical processing, pneumatics andinstrumentation, potable water, deionized water, wire jacketing,laboratory applications, and decorative coverings. Linear low-densitypolyethylene tubing is a lightweight, flexible product suitable for avariety of uses due to its relatively low cost. It offers no transferof odor or taste to critical streams, good dielectric properties, andis chemically inert, forming a good barrier to gases, vapors, andmoisture. The linear low density formula provides enhanced resistanceto stress cracking (over that of low density). It’s durable and staysflexible at temperatures well below 0 F. The co-extruded version —polyethylene-lined EVA — performs much like linear low densitypolyethylene tubing and offers additional features. Its ingredientsconform to USP Class VI standards, and it provides greater flexibilityover linear low density because of the bonded EVA outer layer.Polyethylene-lined EVA may be substituted for PTFE fluoropolymer tubingin applications involving working temperatures below 100 F, which canresult in a cost savings of 50 percent or more.
