Tygon® Chemical

Peristaltic Pump Tubing

Tygon® Chemical tubing from Saint-Gobain is a high-performance, co-extruded product that is ideal for soap and detergent dispensing applications. It is formulated to provide the exact amount of chemical resistance necessary to extend a pump’s life. This tubing features an inert, ultra-smooth, plasticizer-free bore that resists the absorption/adsorption of aqueous fluids, as well as an outer jacket that is extremely flexible, which reduces downtime due to pump tubing failure. This product is virtually unaffected by acids, bases, salts, and ketones, and it can be used in a wide range of chemical applications without the use of multiple tubes.
