BRIDGEWATER, N.J. -- April 22, 2013

Saint-Gobain has expanded its Sani-Tech® line of fluid transfer products with
the introduction of Sani-Tech® Ultra-HP high purity hose. Ultra-HP combines a
tough outer jacket and hose comprising multiple layers of Sani-Tech® Ultra
platinum-cured silicone and 316L stainless steel helical wire reinforcement
with a PharmaFluor® FEP liner. The liner’s smooth inner bore surface provides
both optimal flow and ease of cleaning and sanitization.

The PharmaFluor® FEP liner minimizes bonding of biological materials and
maintains fluid purity due to low TOCs, extractables and leachables. The liner
is fully bonded to the silicone hose utilizing patented bonding technology,
which helps ensure a high purity fluid path.

Sani-Tech® Ultra-HP hose is manufactured to tight dimensional tolerances,
which simplifies the assembly procedure. The hose’s overall light weight, low
force to bend and exceptional flexibility make it very user-friendly. It
suitable for a variety of applications, including bioprocessing, product
transfer and steam-in-place/clean-in-place (SIP/CIP).

Sani-Tech® Ultra-HP hose is constructed from USP Class VI compliant materials
and certified to meet USP <88>, USP <87>, EP 3.1.9, ISO 10993, FDA 21 CFR
177.2600 and FDA 21 CFR 177.1550 requirements.
