Our Teflon tubing made with Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a highly durable and reliable product. Though it is of a higher cost than your normal rubber tubing, PTFE made tubing has characteristics which allow it to hold up under harsher conditions, meaning less replacement and repair costs.
Its high temperature range allows PTFE tubing to function in temperatures as high as 500 degrees Fahrenheit and as low as minus 454 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes it the perfect choice for a wide variety of industrial applications. It also has very high break and stretch resistance, ensuring it will continue to work in conditions where rubber tubing will not.
In addition to the cost of replacing the broken tube, you have to take into consideration the downtime involved. This enhances the value of PTFE as it lasts longer than regular tubing, and results in less downtime and loss of production.
Another characteristic which make PTFE so invaluable is its flexibility. It offers the highest flexibility of any fluoropolymer tubing. It has excellent electrical properties, and is very chemical resistant, making it the perfect fit for lab work. PTFE also has low permeability, while maintaining a low coefficient of friction. This simply means that is highly lubricated and is available to slide over a wide variety of substances without damaging them.
Your time matters, and you need to rely on your products to hold up under extreme circumstances and conditions. Don’t waste your time replacing and repairing parts, and racing to make up for lost production time. Instead, use a superior tubing like PTFE and experience the difference today.
