As part of TBL’s continued commitment towards environmental responsibility, they offer their complete line of ClearGreen® flexible PVC tubing. Most flexible PVC sold today contains phthalate plasticizers such as DEHP. Phthalates are known to present increased health and environmental risks. ClearGreen® Tubing has been developed without phthalates to address the growing trend away from this type of plasticizer. Unlike competitors, ClearGreen® does not impart a taste or odor to a fluid.
ClearGreen® tubing complies with California EPA environmental standards, the EU’s REACH (article 33.1) and RoHS regulations. It also fully complies with the requirements of USP Class VI, is non-Pyrogenic and non-hemolytic. It is the material of choice for laboratory, food and beverage/ beer tubing, pharmaceuticals, medical device, Brewery, consumer products, and environmental and imparts no taste or odor. Consider using ClearGreen® for any application where you are using phthalate-plasticized PVC. It has superior clarity, biocompatibility, and is friendlier to the environment at time of disposal. ClearGreen® is the original phthalate free vinyl tubing and it meets or exceeds the Tygon® ND series.
