Saint–Gobain Performance Plastics is the leader in anti-microbial tubing technology. Our custom compounding capabilities allow us to produce anti-microbial versions of many of our tubing products, including Tygon®
, and Tygothane®
. Tubing can be treated on the inner surface at the point of fluid contact, or the entire tube can be treated in cases where bacteria buildup on the OD is a concern.
Cleaning procedures, such as washing with detergent and hot water, can kill microbes but this process can be time consuming and costly, and does not provide residual protection against fresh contamination. The additional use of a durable and safe anti-microbial treatment is the best way to provide protection against microbial contamination. Offering your customer this enhanced protection adds additional value to your product.
