Clear Plastic Tubing

What is clear plastic tubing used for?

It has many varied uses ranging from commercial, industrial, domestic and retail purposes.

What might clear plastic tubing be the best option for me?

Without knowing specifically the application that the tubing will be for, there cannot be a definitive answer to this question. However, there are some properties of clear plastic tubing inherent to the nature of the product that make it attractive to a wide variety of users across the board.

  • Versatility – the tubing can be made to specifications of differing thicknesses, widths and lengths making it a popular and well-regarded solution for tubing needs.
  • Flexibility – the tubing can be bent around or moved without compromising the safety or the quality of what the tubing is being used for. This also allows the tubing to be easily mounted around rooms, or along walls so there are less opportunities for safety issues to arise, or the chance for unnecessary damage.
  • Durability – the polymers that are the foundation of the tubing are strong as well as flexible. Depending on the kind of clear plastic tubing being used, they can be suitable for a range of temperature requirements and chemical needs. Another point worth mentioning here is that if there is a specific criterion such as suitability for high-pressure usage, clear plastic tubing can be made and tested to be suitable for the purpose.
  • Economy – a very cost-friendly option particularly when compared to some of its counterparts.
  • Lightweight nature – lighter than it’s glass or metal counterparts, easier to manage, transport, shift, store and apply.
  • Suitability – in environments where one may need to see liquids flowing through the tubes, or where visibility of the inners of the tubing is of significant importance, clear plastic tubing is the perfect choice.
  • Sterility – for medical purposes, clear plastic tubing can be appropriate and cost-effective where single-use sterile tubing is required.

Who makes clear plastic tubing?

Manufacturers of plastic products are usually the best place to start. A good manufacturer should be able to accommodate your specific requirements, so make sure you’re clear about them before you ask for quotes.

If the manufacturer doesn’t sell the tubing direct to the public you may have to seek out a middleman to assist you with the transaction. Finding a direct to market manufacturer, however, may mean your costs are lower so it’s probably the best place to start looking.
