plasticizer-free coloured/UV tubing?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
does it exist? I've read you can get white/clear or black plasticizer free tubing but I really want some transparent green that isn't going to fill my loop with plasticizer flakes after 3 months.. any suggestions? what is the current best option even if it does contain plasticizer? doesn't have to be UV but must be clear green.

Unfortunately, it doesnt look like you can get plasticizer free tubing in anything but clear, white, or black at the moment. But at least someone contacted primochill, so maybe they will resolve their recent issue, as my past tubing from them had no plasticizer issue (2-3 years old).

I think it is just vendors not realizing people want plasticizer free inner bore tubing.

i'm going to buy some primochill green tubing from a UK store (i'm in the UK) and hope it's not from the same bad batch people seem to be getting in the US with all the plasticizer

The clear tubing i got has shown no signs of plasticizer so far, for the couple of months i have had it anyways. However, like i said, it is clear and not transparent green like you wanted.

I had some UV blue/clear Feser tubing + distilled water in my loop for 6 months and had no issue with it.

More of a yellow than green

Primochill offered to replace my 1 week old clear tubing, now I'm waiting to get my new stuff. I'm hoping it will be okay this time around.

I want clear tubing myself, but I might go back to Feser UV blue/clear or try some MasterKleer. I'd order clear Feser but no-one sales except Feser and they want 25 bucks for 10 feet which is fine, but they want almost 30 for shipping.
