Furthermore Pharmaprene® exhibits good flow consistency for peristaltic pump applications. It performs well under vacuum conditions.

This is tough tubing, showing good anti-ageing properties in harsh weather, sunshine and saline applications. Its operational temperature range is wide and it exhibits excellent environmental stability under changing temperatures. It is ideal for use in peristaltic pump systems as a direct replacement for Santoprene®.
