Tygon E-3603 Laboratory Tubing
Tygon E-3603 offers the superior performance traditionally found in Tygon products while addressing the increasing safety concerns regarding phthalates and BPA as well as the increased regulation of products using plasticizers containing DEHP. With great consideration for increased sustainability and safety for the environment and users, this clear, flexible and phthalate-free Tygon tubing is effective in handling most inorganic chemicals found in laboratory settings. Its durable formulation is resistant to flex fatigue and abrasion. This non-oxidizing tubing is less permeable than rubber tubing and will not contaminate fluid as it passes through the tubing. The smooth, polished inner bore prevents buildup and promotes efficient cleaning. It can be sterilized through conventional autoclave methods (steam 30 minutes at 15 psi, 121°C) and ethylene oxide.
Application Examples (Click to Read)
Tygon E-3603 has applications in several industries including laboratory, food and beverage handling, peristaltic and vacuum pumps, biopharmaceutical and analytical instruments. This product is ideal for condensers, incubators, desiccators, gas lines and drain lines as well as instrument connection, vent, drain and other general laboratory applications. This Tygon tubing offers a long-term economical choice as its durability minimizes labor and replacement expenses. For example, in peristaltic pump applications, its lifespan is triple that of the original R-3603.
