PTFE Teflon Tubing (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene(PTFE) a fluoropolymer tubing, often described as Teflon tubing) is a transparent, chemically inert and non-toxic material that features unmatched chemical resistance and a surface that really facilitates the flow. Due to its high flexibility, PTFE is mostly used with microfluidic fittings in low-pressure applications. Its melting point is reached at 327°C, making it a material of choice in high temperature applications.
FluoroTube marks the entry of Poly Fluoro into the PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene) tubing segment. We manufacture various grades and sizes of tubes, making FluoroTube ideal for medical, chemical, and automotive applications.
PTFE tube includes:
- Spaghetti tubing – with a wall thickness of within 1.5mm and an outer diameter of less than 15mm, this tubing is used extensively in both medical and automotive applications.
- PTFE hoses – these are heavy-wall thickness tubes and are used primarily in applications that need high-burst pressures or heavy insulation.
- PTFE sleeves – these can be either extruded or compression-moulded. Their wall thickness is usually between 2-6mm, but the diameter could go up to as much as 300mm. Sleeves are used in a variety of applications that need insulation, lubrication, corrosion resistance, or load bearing.
|High chemical resistance||Suitable for carrying highly corrosive/reactive fluids|
|Distinctly inert||Extensively useful in medical applications|
|Withstands temperatures of up to 240°C||Effective in high-heat applications|
|Superior dielectric strength||Insulating medium in cables and heavy electricals|
