Phthalate–Free PVC Tubing
Ormantine has transitioned to phthalate-free PVC tubing in 2013.
PVC materials have typically used phthalate plasticizers as a softening agent. Phthalates have been highlighted as substances of very high concern (SVHCs) under European REACH regulation due to their adverse health impacts. The new phthalate-free material has been introduced to address these concerns while still maintaining the flexibility and pumping life expected of PVC tubing.
PVC Solva tubing will also be phthalate-free, specifically designed for use with solvents, aromatic oils and petroleum compounds. Solva PVC offers exceptional resistance to stomach acid and is therefore widely used in medical applications.
