What regulatory standards do Tygon S3 units comply with?

They comply with FDA, NSF, 3-A and REACH standards.

What is DEHP?

DEHP is an odourless & colourless organic chemical that is added to plastics for making them flexible.

What is Tygon S3 tubing made of?

Tygon S3 tubing is phthalate-free and is manufactured from a bio-based or NON-DEHP plasticiser.

How do I properly cut Tygon tubing?

  • Use a permanent marker or cutter wheel to mark the tubing where the cut needs to be done.
  • Clamp the tubing securely in a vice or clamp to prevent it from moving while cutting.
  • Use a sharp, clean tubing cutter (specially designed for plastic tubing) and rotate around the tubing, applying gentle pressure.
  • Avoid using a blade as it will crush or deform the tubing while making a cut.
  • Make sure to keep the cutter wheel aligned with the marked line and rotate the cutter in a single direction until the tubing is fully cut.
  • After cutting, remove any burrs from the inside and outside of the edge with the help of a deburring tool or sandpaper.
  • Now, clean the cut edge with a dry cloth to remove any dust or debris before making any connection.

Can Tygon tubing be used for high-pressure applications?

Yes, Tygon thermoplastic tubing features a braid reinforcement that helps it to withstand high-pressure applications.

Can Tygon tubing be used in medical applications?

Tygon ND 100-80 tubing is used in the medical industry and is available in five extremely small sizes for varied applications. This tubing is formulated with a higher durometer to offer rigidity, allowing easy handling, yet it is soft enough to reduce problems like kinking and puncturing. It features a clear glass inner bore that aids the visual monitoring when used with intravenous solutions, dialysis and other medical devices.
