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.

SPECIFICATION

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.

APPLICATIONS

  • In automotive applications, the ability of PTFE to withstand temperatures in excess of 250oC makes it an ideal candidate for high temperature fluid transfer.
  • In medical applications, PTFE tubing is in huge demand due to its lubricity and chemical inertness. Catheters employing PTFE tubingcan be inserted into the human body without fear of reaction or abrasion with any body parts.
  • In chemical applications – including laboratories – PTFE is an ideal replacement for glass due to its inertness and durability.
  • In electrical applications, the excellent dielectric properties of virgin PTFE make it well suited for insulating high voltage cables.
