PVC PhthalateFree ® Tubing for Pharmaceutical Use - REACH Compliant
PVC is very popular for tubing due to its wide chemical resistance, excellent pumping life and highly competitive price. However many PVC materials contain Phthalate plasticisers, which are increasingly becoming a concern under REACH regulation.
All of Gradko's PVC is now PhthalateFree® which not only removes this concern but also offers the excellent pumping life of PVC material, making it an ideal choice for Pharmaceutical industries. The material uses a TOTM plasticiser, which is very tightly bonded into the material, preventing any leaching.
As expected from PVC, this tubing exhibits a wide range of acid and chemical resistance and is transparent to allow visual observation of tubing contents. The tubing also demonstrates anti-leaching of component chemicals into the medium being transported, maintaining its sterility. PhthalateFree® PVC offers very low gas permeability and can withstand high pressure contents.
