Extruded Flexible Tubing

Extruded flexible tubing is the result of using an extrusion manufacturing process to pull a flexible material, such as polypropylene plastic, through a die with a center plug. The process results in long pieces of tubing with a constant cross-sectional shape. The extrusion proces results in accurate tubes with a consistent thickness and surface finish. Extruded flexible tubing is in many different applications, including as a replacement for traditional copper pipe in residential and commercial plumbing systems.
