John Guest Tubing

Our tubing provides the benefits of a wide range of temperature and pressure suitability, broad chemical compatibility and is made from non-contaminating materials.

Common applications are in water purification, water conditioners, ice makers. and misting systems. LLDPE is more robust than traditional low or medium density polyethylene and is recommended for use with cold and intermittent hot water.

Our tubing is made from FDA approved materials and is listed with NSF International Standard 51 & 61.

John Guest LLPDE Tubing provides excellent resistance to environmental stress cracking as measured by ASTM D-1693 (10% IGEPAL).

John Guest Polyethylene Tubing is designed for use with John Guest Super Speedfit® Push-in fittings, John Guest Shut-Off Valves, and virtually all standard tubing connectors.


1/4 Inch Tubing
3/8 Inch Tubing,
230psi @ 70ºF
120 psi @ 150ºF
60psi @ 180ºF
1/2 Inch Tubing 150psi @ 70ºF
90psi @ 150ºF
45psi @ 180ºF

Maximum Working Temperature 180ºF at pressure shown in chart above.

Burst Pressures are approximately 3 times the maximum working pressure.

If the tubing is used in a warm water system a tube insert may be necessary.

Please note maximum pressure rating for a ‘system’ depends on the lowest rated component, eg. John Guest fittings have a different rating than the tube ratings shown above.

When using John Guest LLPDE Tubing for pneumatic applications, ensure that the pressure does not exceed a maximum of 150 psi at 70ºF. At elevated temperatures, mineral oil may degrade LLPDE Tubing, and therefore, LLPDE Tubing used in pneumatic circuits should be periodically checked and replaced as necessary.
