Tygon E-3603 Phthalate-Free Tubing
Tygon E-3603 Tubing
Saint-Gobain has developed TYGON® E-3603 using entirely bio-based plasticizers.
Crystal clear and flexible, long-lasting and crack-resistant, the new TYGON®
E-3603 non-DEHP tubing delivers the same superior performance you have come
to expect, but now in a formulation that contains a non-DEHP plasticizer. Replacing
DEHP with a bio-based, non-phthalate plasticizer delivers the benefits of increased
sustainability and safety for the environment and users.
TYGON® E-3603 Tubing handles most inorganic chemicals found in the laboratory.
It is non-oxidizing and non-contaminating, and less permeable than rubber tubing.
The glassy-smooth inner bore helps prevent buildup to facilitate cleaning, and coils
are marked at 1-foot (30.4 cm) intervals for easy measuring.
