PTFE Tube

PTFE

Fluoropolymer tube is almost universally inert to industrial chemicals & solvents & can handle nearly any corrosive material with low permeability of the tube contents. This makes PTFE ideal for a vast range of applications, particularly transport of harsh chemicals.

We have a range of stock sizes, but we can supply custom manufactured PTFE from 0.2mm to 40mm ID, with a variety of wall thicknesses from 0.15mm to 5mm depending on technical construction. We can also supply Convoluted PTFE, coloured PTFE & FEP tubing.

Applications

  • Transport of harsh chemicals
  • Transport of nutrients
  • Painting & printing equipment
  • Abrasion protection
  • Welding electrode guide tubing
  • Electrical insulation
  • Analytical instruments
  • Environmental monitoring equipment
  • Heat exchangers
  • Component covering

Features & Benefits

  • Suitable for food use
  • Non-hardening & non-stick
  • Durable
  • Retains flexibility & integrity within a wide operating temperature range
  • Excellent resistance against aging
  • Plasticizer free
  • Low permeability
  • Excellent friction co-efficient

Chemical Resistance

  • Almost universally inert to industrial chemicals and solvents
  • Can handle virtually any corrosive material in use today
  • Low permeability of the tube contents

Custom Manufacture

We can also offer Convoluted PTFE, which boasts all the same great properties as our stock PTFE along with a very good flexlife and improved bend radius.

Please call the sales office or visit the Convoluted PTFE page for more information

PTFE is available as a carrier hose in our Dual Containment System

Custom Manufacture: The above are stock sizes. We can supply custom manufactured PTFE from 0.2mm to 40mm ID, with a variety of wall thicknesses from 0.15mm to 5mm depending on technical construction. We can also supply Convoluted PTFE, coloured PTFE & FEP tubing.

Technical information for use as a guide only. All colours & lengths are subject to stock. Pressure values given are based on the short term burst pressure at 20°C based on a 3:1 safety factor. Any increase in temperature above 20°C will result in a decline in working pressure values.
