DEHP, or Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate is an organic chemical that is commonly used during manufacturing in order to add flexibility and longevity to standard plastics and PVC Tubing. DEHP has recently been linked to a variety of serious illnesses including cancer and damaging reproductive issues. More concerning is the fact that PVC tubing containing DEHP is often used in medical products and devices including IV bags and IV bag tubes, so exposure to DEHP often occurs for individuals who are already seriously ill or immunocompromised.

Freelin Wade is a trusted supplier of DEHP-Free PVC tubing and has the resources available to meet all your plastic tubing needs. Freelin-Wade's flexible PVC uses a non-DEHP, non-phthalate plasticizer. We pioneered the use of this bio-based and socially conscious material in the plastic tubing industry years ago and are prepared to meet you PVC tubing demands as the potential toxicity of phthalates causes tubing containing DEHP to become prohibited.
