Our Pharm-A-Line VI™ and Pharm-A-Line XL™ co-extruded tubing combine the best properties of two dissimilar materials, providing a clear, seamless, lightweight and flexible product with important benefits.
The liner, (or contact surface), is made of a clear, chemically inert, low-density polyethylene (LDPE) material. LDPE is co-extruded with a high-purity ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), which gives superior flexibility and clarity along with good burst strength.
While Pharm-A-Line VI™ and Pharm-A-Line XL™ are made of the same base materials, Pharm-A-Line XL is gamma-irradiated, which cross-links the material for even greater thermal, chemical and mechanical performance.
Both Pharm-A-Line VI™ and Pharm-A-Line XL™ are USP Class VI certified. They resist attack from most solvents. Both have excellent barrier characteristics along with very low gas and liquid permeability. Both work well with compression and push-on fittings.
Pharm-A-Line VI and XL meet the most stringent criteria for bio-pharmaceutical product transfer. They are also widely used in the water and printing industries.
