This clear plasticizer-free plastic tubing is made of chemical-resistant Tygon formulation 2075 for transferring chemical substances in laboratory and factory applications. The crystal clear tubing allows unobstructed visual monitoring of flow. The Tygon formulation 2075 plastic construction resists acids, bases, salts, alcohols, and ketones, including methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), that tubing commonly transfers or contacts in laboratories and factories for longer use than other tubing. It contains no plasticizers such as Di(2-ethlhexyl)phthalate (DEHP), which could contaminate transferred fluids. The tubing's smooth inner bore limits particulate build-up and is hydrophobic to prevent aqueous fluid absorption. Whereas some types of tubing release hazardous byproducts like chlorine when incinerated, this tubing releases only carbon dioxide and water when incinerated for a less-toxic means of disposal. It can be sterilized with ethylene oxide (ETO), steam, or radiation. The tubing has a working temperature range of -75 to 130 degrees F, a durometer (hardness) of 72A, and working pressure ratings that vary by tube size. It meets U.S. Pharmacopoeia (USP) Class VI criteria for medical grade plastic materials, and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 21 CFR 175.1520 and National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) 51 criteria for food contact for quality assurance. The plastic tubing is not designed for use as an implant material, but it is suitable for use in X-ray processing, paint and solvent production, and transferring chemicals and hazardous materials, among other applications.
Plastic tubing is used to transfer liquids, air, or solids, and it is characterized by a round, rectangular, or square shape and a hollow center. Plastic tubing is crimp-resistant and varies in bend radius (flexibility), chemical resistance, wall thickness, durometer hardness, and temperature and pressure handling abilities. The clarity of plastic tubing may be transparent (clear), translucent (semi-clear), or opaque (solid), and the tubing's coloring may indicate suitable applications. Barbed fittings are used to connect tubing or redirect flow in a fluid handling system. Plastic tubing is used in a wide variety of industries, such as agriculture, automotive, laboratory, and medicine. Applications for plastic tubing include blood and fluid handling, peristaltic pumps, electrical and thermal insulation, analytical systems, and food and beverage handling, among others.
Saint-Gobain Corporation manufactures plastic tubing for the food and beverage, chemical processing, industrial, laboratory, medical, pharmaceutical, and semiconductor processing industries under the Tygon brand in the Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics sector. Founded in 1665, the company is headquartered in Courbevoie, France, and operates 45 plastics manufacturing sites worldwide.
