Tubing (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene) is the recommended choice. It resists "melt-off"
by soldering irons when making terminations. Because of its excellent
dielectric properties, it is widely used in electronics and electrical
service. Another key advantage of PTFE Tubing is its non-stick properties
that allow the transport of materials with minimal fluid resistance. Please
do be aware, however, that PTFE reacts with fluorine, molten sodium
hydroxide and molten alkali metals.
We have a full line of extruded PTFE Tubing used for protecting wiring or
transporting fluids in critical applications. PTFE Tubing comes in various
configurations as well as custom designs. PTFE Tubing outperforms glass and
graphite by its inherent superior chemical resistivity and low coefficient
of friction, making it an ideal material for fluid transfers.
PTFE Tubing can be used with virtually all industrial solvents, chemicals,
and corrosive materials, and can be used in processes at elevated
temperatures. It can be steam sterilized without effecting its physical
properties, such as surface hardness, elongation, flex life or deformation
under load. PTFE Tubing is normally translucent white in color, however, the
degree of whiteness varies from lot to lot, and with dimensional wall
thickness. Colored PTFE tubing is also available and is generally used to
simplify tube routing during system installations.
