Soft and flexible, new Tygon® E-1000 Non-DEHP Laboratory Tubing delivers the same superior performance you have come to expect from Tygon® tubing but now in a formulation that contains non-DEHP [Bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate] plasticizers.
The market demand and certain global and regional requirements such as Europe’s REACH, EU Food directives and California Prop 65 motivated Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (SGPPL) to develop tubing products that contain a globally accepted substitute for DEHP. In addition SGPPL moving to non-DEHP tubing is art of our commitment to our customers for products’ safety and quality. The
new Tygon® E-1000 Non-DEHP Laboratory Tubing has been tested rigorously to ensure that it meets the same physical standards, including low temperature and corrosive chemicals resistance as the old Tygon® R-1000 tubing.
The Preferred Tubing in Low-Torque Peristaltic Pumps
The extremely low durometer (40) of Tygon® E-1000 provides minimal resistance to compression. This feature is ideal when using low-torque or battery-driven peristaltic pumps. Tygon® E-1000 provides an excellent alternative to silicone tubing where corrosive chemicals are used. Tygon® Ultra-Soft Tubing will typically outlast silicone tubing in peristaltic pump applications by a margin of 2 to 1.
