This translucent plastic tubing is made of Tygon Tygoprene formulation XL-60 and is designed for long-term use in peristaltic pump applications. The translucent tubing permits limited light filtration while still allowing visual flow monitoring. The Tygon Tygoprene formulation XL-60 is a long-lasting alternative to polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and silicone rubber for peristaltic pump use. The tubing is made using only non-Di(2-ethlhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) plasticizers to avoid the risk of DEHP plasticizers contaminating transferred fluids that also may cause tubing to become brittle prematurely. The tubing has a working temperature range of -40 to 250 degrees F, a durometer (hardness) of 60A, and working pressure ratings that vary by tube size. It meets U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 21 CFR 177.1210, National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) 51, and European (EU) Directive 2002/72/EC criteria for food contact, and Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 94 flammability standards for quality assurance. This tubing is suitable for use in peristaltic pumps, food processing, hot and cold beverage dispensing, and soap dispensing, 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.

The second usage I made was to use this hose to hook to a Bunsen burner. Because the hose is very heat resistant it's less of a worry about something hot falling on the hose and creating a gas leak. This hose is much more flexible than automotive type hose which is an advantage in this case.
The hose is reasonably easily cut with scissors or a shap knife.

good quality brewing hose. Seems to be stiff enough to resist collapsing under vacuum.Published 16 months ago by Amazon Customer
The tubing arrived in a timely manner, but it was advertised as 60 inches and when it arrived it measured 51 inches. I barely had enough to complete the job.Published on March 27, 2014 by Craig G. Vona
If your looking for Tygon for high temp sanitary use.. this is it!! Arrived quick, clean cut, easy to use!Published on February 20, 2014 by wheels
I use this for home brewing so food grade and high temperature were mandatory. Works great, it's flexible and easy to clean. It's held up to high temperatures well.Published on November 22, 2013 by Samuel D.
