Tygon® 3355-L Extended Life Silicone Tubing
High-performance, platinum-cured silicone tubing for peristaltic pump applications
  • Lasts up to five times longer than other platinum silicone tubing in pump applications
  • Minimal extractables
  • Non-toxic, non-hemolytic, non-pyrogenic
  • Ultra-smooth inner bore
  • Excellent fluid flow characteristics
  • Taste free and odor free
  • Temperature resistance -112ºF (-80ºC) to 400ºF (204ºC)

Tygon® 3355-L is a high-performance, extended life, platinum-cured silicone tubing formulation specifically designed for demanding peristaltic pump applications. Its superior flex life characteristics reduce potential downtime due to pump tubing failure (see Comparative Peristaltic Pump Tubing Life chart). It has an extremely smooth inner surface that helps minimize the risk of particle entrapment and microscopic buildup during sensitive fluid transfer â€" even in extended use applications.

Limited risk of fluid contamination
Peristaltic pumping transports fluids efficiently, without risking contact with any portion of the pump itself. During this process, the fluid is contained entirely within the flexible tubing, eliminating exposure to any components of the pump and thus the risk of fluid contamination. The excellent fatigue resistance properties of Tygon® 3355-L tubing make it an ideal tubing selection for peristaltic pump systems and perfect for limiting the risk of contamination.
