Non-PVC tubing compounds - Teknor Apex

Medalist MD-500 Series elastomers are clear, have mechanical properties comparable to those of PVC, and resist kinking and necking. Medalist MD-575 exhibits 70% less heat-aged color shift than a gamma-stabilized PVC compound of comparable hardness after exposure to gamma radiation.
The elastomers comply with ISO 10993-5 cytotoxicity standards and are free of animal-derived materials, phthalates, latex, and silicones. Standard formulations include five grades, with Shore A hardness (15 sec.) ranging from 53 to 86.
