- For Transferring Food, Beverage, Liquor, and Brewing
- For Transferring Alcohol, Cosmetics and Fragrance
- For Transferring High Purity Chemicals such as Fine Chemical
- For Chemical Piping such as Acid and Alkali
- For Waste Inks
- As a Protection of the Fluid which is affected by PVC Plasticizer
- As an Alternative for Silcon Tubing
- Flexibility…Compared with other non-PVC tubing, E-KYT shows higher levels of flexibility. This greatly improves work efficiency.
- Non-PVC…E-KYT is an eco-friendly tubing, which is made of Olefin Resin and Styrene Resin Elastomer.
- Environment-Friendly…E-KYT restrains the production of harmful gas, even though it is burned out.
- Plasticizer-Free…E-KYT does not contain plasticizer (an elution material) at all. E-KYT is an oil-free tubing.
- Low Elution and Low Odor…Compared with PVC hose, elution levels are low. It is suitable for transferring food, beverage, and cosmetics.
- Chemical Resistance…Since the inner layer is made of Olefin Resin, E-KYT shows great chemical resistance.
- Easy to Cut…Since we print the cut mark on the hose every meter, it is easy to cut the length you would like to.
- Transparency…E-KYT (natural color) enables you to check the fluid very easily.
- RoHS2…E-KYT is free from RoHS2 restrictive substances. Certificate is available on request.
- Original Fittings…By using our original fittings, you can avoid accidents which are caused by incorrect choices of hose and fittings.
- Food Sanitation…E-KYT conforms to the Food Sanitation Law No.370 (No.370 of the Ministry of Health and Welfare for Food Sanitation). (Conformity to N-Heptane). Certificate is available on request.
- Temperature Range : 0 – 70 $^\circ$C
- Color : Natural

- Due to the laminated structure tubing, please use the joints to seal an inner surface of the hose.
- Please do not use the joints to seal an outer surface of the hose. This may result in the bursting or coming off from the hose.
- When you use our products, please refer to “Precautions for Use.”
- In terms of chemical resistance, please refer to “Chemical Resistance Data.”
- Although the inner layer is resistant to fluids, depending on working environments, the fluids would be permeated through the inner layer, resulting in the danger of swelling and degradation of the middle or outer layer.
Frequently Asked Question
Question: We understand that an inner layer of E-KYT is made of Olefin. What kinds of chemical can be transferred through Olefin?
Answer: Although in terms of chemical resistance, Olefin is lower than Fluorine, some types of chemicals are transferrable. For instance, isopropryl alcohol, phenol, alkali, methanol, ethanol, and sodium hypochlorite are transferrable. (Please note that depending on the other using conditions, those chemicals might not be resistant against Olefin. Please check in advance.)

Notes: Depending on the materials of the hose, plasticizer and stabilizer may elute. Data on the above show the levels of low elution of E-KYT. The results above are measured values are NOT guaranteed.
If you wash the hose in hot water, hot water must be lower than 80 $^\circ$C (176 $^\circ$F), less than 30 minutes and less than 0.1 MPa (1kgf/cm2) (One-Side Free Condition).
