Tygon S3 Silver Antimicrobial Tubing

Tygon S3 Silver Antimicrobial Tubing

Tygon S3™ Silver tubing decreases bacterial growth and provides added value.

Colonies formed by viable bacteria after exposure to AlphaSan® treated (left) and untreated (right) polymer.

Saint-Gobain is the leader in antimicrobial technology. Our custom compounding capabilities allow us to produce antimicrobial versions of many of our tubing products. Tygon S3™ Silver Antimicrobial Tubing is formulated with a silver-based compound on the inner surface at the point of fluid contact; the tubing’s outer surface can be treated in cases where bacteria buildup on the I.D. is a concern.

Cleaning procedures, such as washing with detergent and hot water, can kill microbes. But this process can be time consuming and costly, and does not provide residual protection against fresh contamination. The additional use of a durable and safe antimicrobial treatment is the best way to provide protection against microbial contamination. Offering your customers this added protection adds value to your product.
