[Q] Recommended Tubing for low maintenance?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I am looking for some plasticizer free tubing. It has to be available from Frozen CPU website.
Was thinking Tygon A-60-G Norprene 3/8" ID (5/8" OD). Is this a safe choice?
I plan on using barbs with Swiftech snake clamps on the Tygon Norprene tubing.

It's just I've read many horror stores of plasticizer around here and... nobody got time for that.

My requirements:
-3/8 ID, 5/8 OD
-Plasticizer free
-Prefer black or clear tubing, but willing to go for any color if it provides additional benefits
-I prioritize low maintenance/performance over looks

Thanks for your help.

Tygon Norprene is plasticizer free. Has some issues with kinking, but no more than many other types of hose.

If you wanted a clear tubing option you might also look at Tygon 2375. It's not as prone to kinking but can be pretty stiff to work with.

Honestly though most have been really happy with Primochill Advanced LRT tubing, which seems to have resolved the plasticizer issues.

That, or you might also consider going with rigid acrylic.
