Phthalate-free tubing for food and beverage applications

Tygon S3 (safe, smart and sustainable) is said to be the first bio-based and phthalate-free tubing, and is the next generation of flexible tubing from this company for food and beverage manufacturers. Tygon S3 complies with FDA, NSF and 3-A requirements for food-and-beverage applications, as well as with Japan Food Sanitation Law # 370/1959. It also complies with European regulations (10/2011/EU) for many food-and-beverage applications when used as instructed. Tygon S3 uses a bio-based plasticizer instead of phthalates to provide “exceptional durability and longevity,” says the company. — Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics, Akron, Ohio
