C-Flex Tubing is the most popular and widely used TPE tubing used in the Life Sciences industry, engineered to meet the critical demands of the sector. This range allows tubing to be welded and sealed as well as offering a solution when permeability is a main consideration in your application.
Available in a wide variety of sizes & choice of wall thickness, there is an C-Flex Tubing option available for most applications.
C-Flex Standard Tubing
Each coil of C-Flex tubing is extruded to precise ID (internal diameter), OD (outer diameter) and wall dimensions. All C-Flex tubing is formulated to meet the standards of the biopharmaceutical industry and is QA tested before leaving the production facility.
Features & Benefits:
|Complies with USP 24/NF19, Class VI standards|
|Manufactured under strict GMPs|
|Non-pyrogenic, non-cytotoxic, non-hemolytic|
|Chemically resistant to concentrated acids and alkalis|
|Significantly less permeable than silicone|
|Low platelet adhesion and protein binding|
|Remains flexible from -50°F to 275°F|
|Heat-sealable, bondable and formable|
|Sterilisable by radiation, ETO, autoclave or chemicals|
|Cell culture media and fermentation|
|Pharmaceutical, vaccine and botanical product production|
|Medical fluid/drug delivery|
|Sterile filling and dispensing systems|
C-Flex Braided Tubing
C-Flex braided tubing is an ultra-flexible, high-purity option for applications where thermoplastic tubing is desired but the pressure requirements exceed those that can be accommodated by a non-reinforced thermoplastic product.
Manufactured from the finest grade of thermoplastic materials – C-Flex formula 082; clear, animal derived component free resin; and reinforcing polyester braid – it is fully characterized, validated and tested to a variety of specifications.
Features & Benefits:
|Pressure rating 5 times greater than unbraided options|
|Ultra-flexible, with improved bend radius over non-reinforced tubing|
|Autoclavable and gamma sterilizable|
|Temperature range of -50°F to 250°F (-45°C to 121°C)|
|Available in 25-foot lengths|
|Vessel and tank transfer|
