PVC Pump Tubing - Now all PhthalateFree®

PVC is one of the most widely used thermoplastic materials due to its preferential characteristics at a highly competitive price. The transparency of PVC materials allow continual visual monitoring of fluid flow and identification of bubbles. Properties of excellent acid and chemical resistance help to maintain the sterility of solutions. PVC tubing can also withstand high pressure contents and has a glass smooth bore, reducing the coefficient of friction.

Medical grade tubing is beneficial to a wide range of medical and non-medical applications due to its lack of impurities and anti-leaching characteristics. PVC tubing offers very low gas permeability and is therefore the superior choice to Silicone tubing for this characteristic.

NEW Phthalate-free greatly extends the pumping life of the tubing for continuous use.

Tygon® PVC tubing – a product of Saint Gobain Performance Plastics, is an alternative to our PVC tubing. This is not medical grade tubing. We also offer PVC pump tubes that are equivalent to other pump manufacturers ranges.

All the PVC tubing is available with flared ends to allow a quick and easy connection to be made between small bore tubes. Download more information about flared tubing here.
