This plastic tubing is made of Tygon formulation B-44-3 plastic and is for use in transferring beverages, including sodas, juices, teas, and water. The crystal clear tubing allows unobstructed visual monitoring of flow, and the Tygon formulation B-44-3 construction is flexible for installing in a variety of locations. A non-wetting and nonporous bore allows full drainage without absorbing or imparting flavors and odors to ensure fluid purity. The tubing's chemical resistance permits prolonged exposure to a range of chemical substances without cracking, swelling, or corrosion and also helps facilitate cleaning with many cleansers. The tubing has a working temperature range of -47 to 165 degrees F, a durometer (hardness) of 63A, and working pressure ratings that vary by tube size. This plastic tubing is rated as very flexible as it bends more easily than flexible or rigid tubing. It meets U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 21 CFR 175.300, National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) 51, and 3-A Sanitary Standards criteria for food and dairy contact for quality assurance. The plastic tubing is not designed for use as an implant material, but it is suitable for use in soft drink, juice, water, and tea dispensing, as well as printing, photo processing, metal finishing, and cosmetic production, among other applications.
Plastic tubing is used to transfer liquids, air, or solids, and it is characterized by a round, rectangular, or square shape and a hollow center. Plastic tubing is crimp-resistant and varies in bend radius (flexibility), chemical resistance, wall thickness, durometer hardness, and temperature and pressure handling abilities. The clarity of plastic tubing may be transparent (clear), translucent (semi-clear), or opaque (solid), and the tubing's coloring may indicate suitable applications. Barbed fittings are used to connect tubing or redirect flow in a fluid handling system. Plastic tubing is used in a wide variety of industries, such as agriculture, automotive, laboratory, and medicine. Applications for plastic tubing include blood and fluid handling, peristaltic pumps, electrical and thermal insulation, analytical systems, and food and beverage handling, among others.
Saint-Gobain Corporation manufactures plastic tubing for the food and beverage, chemical processing, industrial, laboratory, medical, pharmaceutical, and semiconductor processing industries under the Tygon brand in the Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics sector. Founded in 1665, the company is headquartered in Courbevoie, France, and operates 45 plastics manufacturing sites worldwide.

So it works fine and I've had no issues. It is thick but pliable and should last longer than I do :-D
Anyway, this tube worked like a charm. It fit tightly into the 5/16 racking cane but not so tight we had a problem getting the tube in there. The tube was flexible and easy to work with, but not limp. Once the siphon was started, it kept going without any issues. The racked mead ended up nice and clear.
We didn't have any problems with plastic smell either. The tube smelled (and tasted, because I'm paranoid that way) neutral after sterilization. Still smelled neutral after the re-sterilization.
