We interviewed Iuliana Nita, recently appointed Global Marketing Manager, Food and Beverage, Process Systems Division, about the launch of Tygon S3, a safe, smart and sustainable solution for food and beverage transfer and dispensing applications


Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics announced Tygon S3, a first bio-based and phthalate-free tubing as a safe, smart and sustainable product transfer solution. Tygon S3 represents the next generation of flexible tubing from Saint-Gobain and enables food and beverage manufacturers to advance food safety and sustainability measures without sacrificing performance.

Phthalates are commonly used in the plastics industry as a plasticizer to increase tubing's flexibility, transparency, durability and longevity. However, with increasingly stringent legislation around the world, processors anticipate transitioning to equipment that eliminates phthalates altogether.

Tygon S3 complies with FDA, NSF and 3-A requirements for food & beverage applications as well as with Japan Food Sanitation Law # 370/1959. Additionally, Tygon S3 complies with European regulations (10/2011/EU) for many food and beverage applications when used as instructed.

As an alternative to phthalates, Tygon S3 uses a bio-based material as a plasticizer, which provides exceptional durability and longevity compared to other solutions on the market. Food and beverage processors can also leverage the sustainability benefits of this material to reduce the carbon footprint of their supply chains.

"In today's fast-paced media landscape, consumers are more engaged than ever before with the food processing industry," said Iuliana Nita, Global Marketing Manager, Food & Beverage, Process Systems division at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics. "We're very proud to offer the first bio-based, non-phthalate tubing solution to help manufacturers proactively advance both the food safety and sustainability components of their operations without having to compromise productivity - or their bottom line."
