Medical TYGON® tubing ND 100-80 is made from a biocompatible non-DEHP polymer material developed specifically for medical device needs. The product is USP Class VI approved and REACH compliant.
- High rigidity for kink resistance
- Compatible with blood
- Clear, with a glass-smooth inner bore
- Reduced flexibility for suction applications
- Temperature resistance: +85 °C
- Hardness (Shore durometer A): –35 to +80 °C
- Density: 1,21
Tubing ND 100-80 is available in five extremely small sizes for use in intravenous or intra-arterial infusion, and other surgical and hospital applications. It is rigid enough for easy handling, yet soft enough to reduce problems with puncturing.
Consistent with many medical tubing requirements, ND 100-80 material can be effectively bonded/welded using the following methods: heat, electronic (RF)/ultrasonic, solvent and adhesive. Factors to be considered when selecting the components include: security of the bond required, effect on the integrity of the materials to be joined, and presence of residues or extractables that may affect biocompatibility. When bonding procedures are not used, mechanical clamps are recommended to provide secure attachment.
