Product Description & Info
Is Your Tubing Protected Against Microbes?
Microorganisms are living cells so small that most can only be seen with a
microscope. Microbes are a type of microorganism found everywhere, and include
bacteria, fungi and algae. The majority of microbes do not interfere with human activities.
However, in some situations they can cause problems. Growth of microbes on many
materials can lead to foul odors, discoloration and formation of mildew and
biofilm. In the case of tubing, microbes can contaminate the material being
transferred as well as degrade the tubing itself.
Leader in Antimicrobial Technology
Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics is the leader in antimicrobial technology.
Our custom compounding capabilities allow us to produce antimicrobial versions
of many of our tubing products, including Tygon. Tygon Silver Antimicrobial
Tubing is formulated with a silver based compound on the inner surface at the
point of fluid contact; the tubing outer surface can be treated in cases where
bacteria buildup on the O.D. is a concern.
Silver is known to be effective against a broad spectrum of microorganisms
that cause discoloration, odor, biofouling and other aesthetic problems.
Antimicrobial polymer compound can be added to approve materials at varying
levels to impart fungistatic, bacteriostatic and algistatic properties to the
material and the end-use product. The high temperature stability and low color
formulation of antimicrobial polymer compounds translate to proven performance
in a wide variety of applications.
