This Zeus translucent white tubing is a flexible, non-stick tubing for the movement of viscous compounds. It is made of FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene) for low friction and non-reactive properties and has a Shore D Hardness rating of 60 for resistance to abrasion and puncture. It meets United States Pharmocopeia (USP) Class VI standards for biocompatibility. It is gamma, ETO (ethylene oxide), e-beam, and autoclave sterilizable for repeated use and has a maximum operating temperature of 400 degrees F. This translucent white tubing is suitable for laboratory applications, environmental monitoring equipment, and medical devices, 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.
