Tygon E-3603 Tubing


Saint-Gobain has developed TYGON® E-3603 using entirely bio-based plasticizers. Crystal clear and flexible, long-lasting and crack-resistant, the new TYGON® 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. Replacing DEHP with a bio-based, non-phthalate plasticizer delivers the benefits of increased sustainability and safety for the environment and users.

TYGON® 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, and coils are marked at 1-foot (30.4 cm) intervals for easy measuring.

Product Features:

  • Alternative to DEHP tubing
  • Contains no BPA
  • Outstanding chemical resistance
  • Increases productivity in peristaltic pumps – outlasts other clear tubing 2 to 1
  • Non-oxidizing and non-contaminating

Tygon E-3603 Typical Applications

  • General laboratory
  • Analytical instruments
  • Peristaltic and vacuum pumps
  • Ideal for condensers, incubators, desiccators, gas lines and drain lines
