Phthalate-free tubing uses a safe, effective plasticizer derived from plant extracts and avoids the risks and liabilities associated with phthalate-based products.Tubing

Consider the advantages of the following phthalate-free Masterflex® tubing:

Tygon® E-Lab (E-3603)

  • Inexpensive for general lab applications
  • Clear for easy flow monitoring
  • Handles virtually all inorganic chemicals
  • Nonaging, nonoxidizing
  • Low gas permeability
  • Excellent for viscous fluids
  • High dielectric constant

Limitation: potential leaching of plasticizer

Tygon® E-LFL

  • Longest life of all Tygon peristaltic tubing (up to 1000 hrs)
  • Clear for easy flow monitoring
  • Broad chemical resistance
  • Nonaging, nonoxidizing
  • Low gas permeability
  • Smooth bore
  • Excellent for viscous fluids
  • High dielectric constant

Limitation: potential leaching of plasticizer

Tygon® E-Food (B-44-4X)

  • Inexpensive tubing for food and laboratory applications
  • Clear for easy flow monitoring
  • Handles virtually all inorganic chemicals
  • Nonaging, nonoxidizing
  • Low gas permeability
  • Excellent for viscous fluids
  • High dielectric constant

Limitation: limited pump life
