Corrugated Drinking Straws manufactured by SELA are made of very high-quality FDA grade LDPE of North American origin in our York SC, USA facility. SELA’s corrugated straws are pliable, have a good tactile feel, and are made to precise specifications to reduce the possibility of kinking when bent.
- LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene) is a fairly soft plastic with a good tactile feel and is very tough. It will stretch somewhat before breaking and the edges will be soft so that safety is not a concern. The grade selected by SELA for our corrugated straws is FDA grade and will not kink if bent into a U shape holding each end and bringing together, on straw lengths of 11” and longer. If the straw is collapsed in the center instead of bending into a U, it will kink.
