Polypropylene Tubes

We make a diverse range of tubes in this material, from diameters up to 110mm.
Polypropylene Tubes

Polypropylene has excellent resistance to organic solvents, degreasing agents, and electrolytic attacks. It has a relatively low impact strength, but its working temperatures and tensile strength are far superior to those of Polyethylene. The material is very lightweight and semi-rigid, ideal for the transfer of liquids or gases. Very good resistance to acids and alkalis, but is attacked by chlorinated solvents. Working temperature: -20°C to +90°C.

We make a diverse range of tubes from this material in diameters up to 110mm– it will not break with a sharp edge, but instead crease or buckle, making it a safe material for use in some children’s toys.



Polypropylene tubes are widely used in a variety of industries, including healthcare, automotive, and industrial manufacturing. A polypropylene tube is often less costly than its alternatives, making it a cost-effective option for many projects or applications.

Healthcare & medicinal industry - Polypropylene tubing is often used for the safe transfer or reliable containment of laboratory fluids and gases, or as protective casings.

Vehicles - Polypropylene tubes are employed in a range of mechanical applications, from radiators and fuel lines to dashboard components. Its durability, thermal resistance and strength, make it a popular choice for many car parts.

Industrial manufacturing - Polypropylene tubes are often used in industrial manufacturing due to their versatility. They can be used as insulators, seals, spacers for electrical or data wiring. Polypropylene tubing also widely used in the production of plastic furniture, pipes and fittings.

What is the difference between a polypropylene tube and polyethylene tube?

Polypropylene tubes are made from a semi-rigid plastic material that is known for its superior strength and chemical resistance capabilities. It has a working temperature range of -20°C to +90°C and is often used in the vehicle and industrial manufacturing industries.

Polyethylene tubes are made from a softer material than polypropylene and are not as strong or resistant to chemical attack. It has a lower working temperature range of -35°C to +55°C and is often used for water pipes, food packaging, and other domestic applications or specific commercial applications.

Do polypropylene tubes adhere to laboratory protocols?

Yes, polypropylene tubes are a popular choice for laboratory applications due to their temperature resistance and chemical resistance properties. They can also be used as conduits for gases and liquids in many industries, making them a versatile option.
