The specification only says "pliable polymer", but exactly what is it made of?

To be more specific I would like to know what temperature it can handle? Is it food grade? If it's food grade, to which temperature is it food grade? Ie can I run boiling hot water through the water path? And then use the water afterwards?

  • Wouldn't the fact that it is a chiller of wort be already an indication that it can handle hot wort (100°C/212°F)?
