Physical properties of a tubing produced from a specific compound will vary depending on its diameter and wall thickness. The following typical physical properties are average values as measured using test methods of the American Society for Testing and Materials. Unless otherwise noted, all tests were conducted at room temperature (73 F). Values shown were determined on 0.25" thick extruded strip or 0.25" thick molded ASTM plaques or molded ASTM durometer buttons.
IMPORTANT: It is the user’s responsibility to ensure the suitability and safety of Saint- Gobain tubing for all intended uses, including establishing the compatibility of any fluid with the tubing through which it is transmitted. Laboratory, field or clinical tests must be conducted in accordance with applicable requirements in order to determine the safety and effectiveness for use of tubing in any particular application. If intended for medical use, it is the user’s responsibility to ensure that the tubing to be used complies with all applicable medical regulatory requirements.
NOTE: The ratings in the charts DO NOT reflect the extent to which extraction may occur, or the extent to which fluids may undergo any physical changes in properties or composition, as a result of coming into contact with the tubing. Saint-Gobain makes no representation or warranty with respect to the susceptibility of any fluid to become contaminated or undergo changes in properties or composition as a result of possible extraction of tubing ingredients by the fluid to be transmitted. Certain corrosives that would be destructive to tubing with prolonged exposure can be satisfactorily handled for short periods of time if flushed with water after use. All ratings are based on room temperature (73°F). Chemical resistance will be adversely affected by elevated temperatures.
