ClearFLEX 70NP tubing is a non-phthalate PVC offering. Many competitors list their tubing as Phthalate Free inaccurately. They use a compound that is made from ingredients that do not contain phthalates just as we do. However, when tested, many “phthalate-free” products do contain trace amounts of phthalates. To say that your product is phthalate free would require your tubing, once tested to contain zero phthalates. That is why we state that our tubing is non-phthalate, which means that there are <1,000 parts per million. All ClearFLEX 70NP tubing products offer the following:

  • Acceptable for food contact by the following standard: Every substance selected to formulate the items below is either “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS), prior-sanctioned, subject to an effective Food Contact Notification (FCN), subject to a Threshold of Regulation (TOR) exemption, or identified on one or more following sections of Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations published by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA): 181.5, 181.27, 178.2010, 172.860, 174.5
  • NSF-51 & NSF-61 certified
  • Meets the requirements of the U.S. Pharmacopoeia Class VI Biological Tests for Plastics
  • Meets RoHS and REACH standards, also does not contain any substances listed on Proposition 65
  • UL94 testing verified for level HB and V-1
