Tygon S3™ E-3603 from Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics is now phthalate-free.  Saint-Gobain is proud to be among the first companies to offer sustainable, flexible tubing products.  The bio-based Tygon S3™ line combines the high performance standards customers demand with an eco-friendly tubing design.  Crystal-clear and flexible, Tygon S3™ E-3603 non-DEHP tubing delivers the same superior performance you have come to expect, but now in a formulation that contains a non-DEHP plasticizer.

Tygon S3™ E-3603 tubing handles most inorganic chemicals found in the laboratory.  It is non-oxidizing and non-contaminating, and less permeable than rubber tubing.  The glassy-smooth inner bore helps prevent buildup to facilitate cleaning.  Coils are marked at 1-foot (30.4 cm) intervals for easy measuring.
