The tube is made of 3 layers. The outer layer is in PVC, the inner layer is in Polyethylene without additives, material presenting a high chemical inertness and the intermediate layer is Ethyl Vinyl Acetate, material linking the inner and the outer layers.
This structure allows to minimize interaction with drugs and leaching of plasticizers from the PVC into the administered solutions.
