Tygon® LP-1200

Flexible Fuel Tubing

Tygon® LP-1200 tubing from Saint-Gobain is ideal for lawn and garden power equipment, lawn and lubricating oil, small engine fuel lines, and grease transfer lines, and it is specially designed to meet evaporative emission standards of 15g/m²/day. This patented tubing’s robust, multi-layer construction is extremely tight fitting and resistant to swelling, hardening and cracking caused by hydrocarbon-based fluids.

Features & Benefits

  • Transparent & easy to diagnose fuel flow or leak problems 
  • High purity fluoropolymer inner liner & reduces the risk of fuel system fouling from extractable solids found in typical rubber products 
  • Superior fuel resistance and compatible with ethanol-enhanced fuels & worry-free operation 
  • Excellent fitting retention & 100% seal for optimum safety 
  • Superior flexibility & easy assembly, routing and optimized fuel pick-up
  • Excellent elasticity & prevents “necking” from over-stretching during installation 
  • Submersible* & applicable with most fuel applications*

*Not recommended for reuse in higher temperature applications.
