NewAge Industries’ Clearflo 70 Tubing Addresses Phthalates Concern

Feb. 17, 2020
NewAge Industries’ phthalate-free Clearflo 70 tubing addresses concerns about DEHP, BPA and other phthalates.

Platic tubing manufacturer NewAge Industries introduces Clearflo 70 PVC tubing, a phthalate-free product. Clearflo 70 was developed in response to customers’ interest in fluid transfer products that do not contain leachable phthalates such as DEHP (Di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate) or BPA (bisphenol A).  Some studies indicate that phthalates – chemicals used to make certain plastic materials more flexible and easier to process – may have a negative health impact.

“Our customers want to use the safest possible tubing in their processes,” says Gregg Donovan, product marketing manager. “Removing the threat of a potential health hazard on our end removes the worry from our customers and lets them focus on their products.”

In addition to being phthalate-free, Clearflo 70 tubing features and benefits include:

  • The finished tubing meets USP Class VI requirements.
  • Made from non-toxic ingredients conforming to FDA standards
  • NSF-51 (National Sanitation Foundation) listed for use with food equipment materials
  • Glass-like clarity lets users view fluid flow.
  • Smooth surfaces for outstanding flow
  • Flexibility with light weight and abrasion resistance
  • Handles a variety of chemicals, gases and liquids

NewAge stocks Clearflo 70 in fifty sizes ranging from 1/16” through 2” I.D.; larger sizes are available.  The company also offers braid reinforced PVC hose for higher pressure usage, as well as fitting and clamps for attachment.
