Porous PTFE is premium tubing due to its outstanding flexability and durability. It is said that PTFE exhibits a combination of mechanical, electrical, chemical temperature and friction resistant properties unmatched by any other substrate. Porous PTFE Tubes are excellent for use in extreme heat up to +500° F (260° C) and resistant to a low end temperature of -328° (-200° C). PTFE is used in applications where other plastics break down due to their inability to be resistant to chemicals and heat. Porous PTFE has the same unique properties as “normal” PTFE.
Porous PTFE tubing is best used withKynar Fittingswhich are specially designed to create a tight seal around plastic tubing. . These fittings come in a variety of sizes and specifications and are resistant to abrasion and corrosion.
