PTFE tubing (Polytetrafluoroethylene tubing) is manufactured from a fluoropolymer that exhibits attributes not found in other plastic materials and has the lowest coefficient of friction of any plastic, allowing for unrestricted flow without deposit build-up. It also has a working temperature of 500° F (260° C). "PTFE Tubing" Tube is used in fluid handling applications for high temperature acids and caustics or where contamination is an issue, such as in wire braided hose.
Polytetrafluoroethylene PTFE & Teflon is truly a unique material and still the most widely used of all the fluoropolymers. PTFE has a combination of chemical, electrical and thermal performance unmatched by any other commercially available material. Resulting in an engineering material with an extensive range of applications encompassing a wide range of industries.
And because drilling a precise hole in longer PTFE lengths is impossible, extruded tube is the best way to insure uniform wall thickness throughout the length of the tube. Various fillers are available to modify the properties of PTFE to meet application requirements.
