Tubing, Rubber/Latex

Definition : Tubing made of natural rubber, manufactured either by a dry curing and manufacturing process (i.e., dry natural rubber) or by processing (e.g., dipping, extruding) the natural milky fluid (latex) from the tree in its original liquid form (natural rubber latex). Rubber tubing is typically a small-diameter, hollow, flexible cylinder designed for the transfer of fluids, either liquids or gases; latex rubber is a product usually supplied as amber or black tubing with greater flexibility and tear resistance than dry natural rubbers. Rubber/latex tubing is usually available in standardized lengths and in a variety of diameters and wall thicknesses (i.e., gauges) that permit the use of segments of different sizes appropriate for a given application in the healthcare facility; rubber/ latex rubber tubing is commonly used when highly elastic tubing with long life and/or connection to glass is needed.
