Value Plastics offers designers worldwide the broadest selection of male luer and female luer fittings and connectors, luer adapters and luer accessories. Over 120 separate luer configurations are offered in nylon, polypropylene, polycarbonate and PVDF, with many color and special material options available from stock or upon special order. Our male luers and female luers are available with tubing connections that fit many tubing materials ranging from 1/16" (1.6 mm) to 1/4" (6.4 mm) IDs, with threaded ends and panel mount versions also available.

All Value Plastics luer locks, luer adapters and luer accessories are made to the ISO-594-1 standard, and may be connected to other luer fittings meeting ISO standards. Please test your application to verify the performance of the interconnection.

Value Plastics' luer fittings, luer adapters, and luer accessories are part of a standardized system of small-scale tubing connectors used to make secure leak-proof unions in medical devices and laboratory instruments. The special 6% of a luer fitting provides a unique secure friction seal appropriate for gas and fluid connections. The Value Plastics barb (on luer fittings featuring a barbed tubing connection) has no parting lines on the barb to ensure a leak-free tubing union.

The two main categories of luer fittings are luer locks and luer slips. Female luer lock connectors utilize lugs or threads that engage securely with special threads on the male luer lock fittings. Male lock luers are available in versions with integral lock rings or with rotatable features to permit tubing positioning prior to assembly. A slip luer utilizes the luer taper to provide a secure friction connection; the 6% taper on a male luer engages with the female luer 6% taper.
