PTFE tubing is a versatile and highly durable tubing product known for its exceptional chemical resistance, high temperature resistance, and low friction properties. PTFE tubing is widely used in various industries for a range of applications due to its unique characteristics.
PTFE tubing is highly resistant to a wide range of chemicals, acids, solvents, and corrosive substances. It can withstand exposure to aggressive materials without degradation, making it suitable for use in demanding chemical environments.
PTFE tubing can withstand extreme temperatures, ranging from cryogenic temperatures up to approximately 260°C (500°F). It retains its physical properties even at elevated temperatures, making it suitable for applications involving heat transfer or thermal cycling.
PTFE has an extremely low coefficient of friction, which allows for smooth flow and reduces the risk of clogs or blockages. It is often used in applications where high lubricity is required, such as in fluid transfer systems.
PTFE is an excellent electrical insulator, providing insulation and preventing the flow of electric current. It is commonly used in applications where electrical conductivity needs to be minimized.
PTFE has a non-stick surface, which resists the adherence of substances. This property makes PTFE tubing easy to clean and maintain, especially in applications where cleanliness is essential.
PTFE tubing finds applications in a wide range of industries, including chemical processing, pharmaceutical, automotive, electrical, aerospace, and medical. Some common uses of PTFE tubing include fluid transfer, chemical handling, gas sampling, electrical insulation, lubrication systems, and high-temperature applications.
PTFE tubing is available in various sizes, wall thicknesses, and lengths to accommodate different application requirements. It can also be customized with additional features such as reinforcement or color-coding for specific purposes.
