Biopharmaceutical Grade TPE Tubing

AdvantaFlex Biopharmaceutical Grade TPE Tubing – APAF

ESI Ultrapure offer a range of biopharmaceutical Grade TPE tubing (Thermoplastic Elastomer). Advantaflex TPE tubing (APAF) maintains its physical properties following sterilization processes, resists kinking, remains translucent for visible product flow, and does not become gummy. Additionally, the unique properties of our tubing help it outperform similar tubing in peristaltic pumps. Because of its ability to be sealed and welded, AdvantaFlex is ideal for filling and sampling applications.

Increase your process security by reducing the risk of failure at the weld.  AdvantaFlex welds hold strong, providing a more secure, sterile boundary to protect your investment.
