Tygon® Ultra Soft Tubing
Biopharmaceutical Formulation R-1000

Tygon® Ultra-Soft Tubing provides unmatched flexibility and drapeability – characteristics beneficial to numerous laboratory set-ups.

A Flexible Alternative to Complex Laboratory Set-ups

Extremely flexible, Tygon® Ultra-Soft Tubing is the solution to applications requiring maximum drapeability and kink resistance. Even under laboratory set-ups with abrupt radius curves and multiple directional changes, Tygon® Ultra-Soft Tubing resists twisting and collapse - common problems when using other tubing products. Tygon® Ultra-Soft Tubing stays flexible at temperatures as low as -100˚F (-73˚C). Its smooth bore facilitates easy cleaning and helps prevent possible buildup.

Tygon® Ultra-Soft Tubing provides unmatched flexibility and drapeability - characteristics beneficial to numerous laboratory set-ups.

The Preferred Tubing in Low-Torque Peristaltic Pumps

The extremely low durometer of Tygon® Ultra-Soft Tubing provides minimal resistance to compression. This feature is ideal when using low-torque or battery-driven peristaltic pumps and provides an excellent alternative to silicone tubing where corrosive chemicals are used. Tygon® Ultra-Soft Tubing will typically outlast silicone tubing in peristaltic pump applications by a margin of 2 to 1.
