Saint-Gobain introduces next-generation Tygon S3 tubing for use in laboratory applications

Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics, the maker of Tygon® high-performance flexible tubing, has become the first manufacturer to introduce a bio-based, phthalate-free product for use in laboratory applications. DEHP Di(2-ethylhexyl phthalate), a common plasticizer, has been removed from existing Tygon® formulations.

“The change to non-DEHP tubing is integral to the company's continued efforts toward safety, compliance and sustainability”

Next-generation Tygon S3 tubing is DEHP- and phthalate-free. Made from bio-based plasticizer, the product's new sustainable formulations are biodegradable and deliver superior pump life than the original formulations. New Tygon S3 formulations include Tygon S3 E-3603 General Laboratory Tubing and Tygon S3 E-LFL Long Flexible Life Tubing. Tygon® R-1000, has also been replaced by Tygon® E-1000, a soft and flexible non-DEHP tubing.

"The change to non-DEHP tubing is integral to the company's continued efforts toward safety, compliance and sustainability," says Katia May, Laboratory Market Manager for Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics. "Saint-Gobain is the first manufacturer to remove DEHP and phthalates from tubing products for laboratory applications and beyond. We are committed to providing superior, smart, safe, and sustainable flexible tubing with unsurpassed performance."

Saint-Gobain has also launched Tygon S3non-DEHP, phthalate-free micro-bore AutoAnalysis Tubing for precise dispensing and life-science applications. Tygon S3™ formulations are compliant with global regulations and are manufactured in Saint-Gobain's ISO certified facilities. Saint-Gobain supports existing and new customers in their transition and validation requirements.
