Grayline FB80-PE-EVA is a high-purity, low density polyethylene lined, EVA tubing that is sanctioned by the FDA for food and beverage contact applications. This tubing material also meets USP Class VI requirements and is suitable for use in poultry and meat processing. It offers excellent chemical resistance and remains pliable even after extended contact with alcohol. It also has a low coefficient of friction which allows easy passage of solids, alcohols, acids, caustics and solvents.
Grayline FB80-PE-EVA can be used as a cost-effective replacement for PTFE tubing for working temperatures below 40°C. (Cost savings of 50% or more). Irradiated FB80-PE-EVA tubing is also available for temperatures up to 80°C.
