Luers with Tubing

Luers molded from Eastman Tritan™ copolyester MX711 offer many advantages in applications where chemical exposure and applied stresses can cause environmental stress cracking or failure.

Eastman Tritan™ copolyester can be bonded to PVC tubing with popular solvent bonding agents, including cyclohexanone and tetrahydrofuran (solvent bonding to itself is not recommended). The excellent chemical resistance of Tritan reduces the chances of hoop stress in luer fittings. Follow the links below to learn more about secondary operations with parts made of Tritan and other benefits.

Application Highlights

  • Color/clarity retention if irradiated
  • Retains properties after solvent bonding or laser welding
  • Withstands exposure to lipids and disinfectants
