Extruded PTFE Tubing • AWG

Polytertafluoroethylene or Teflon PTFE Tubing is the first and most common of the Fluoropolymer products. Spaghetti Tubing or small diameter PTFE Tubing manufactured to AWG (American Wire Gauge) sizes has the widest range of applications thanks to its high service temperature, superior chemical resistance and insulating properties. With a clean smoothbore interior PTFE Tubing AWG allows for a restriction free flow. Tubing manufactured from PTFE resins have a low permeability to gases and liquids. PTFE is almost completely inert to chemical attack, but under special conditions, it can be affected by such substances as alkali metals and halogens. Teflon PTFE Tubing AWG is heat resistant to 500°F and is ETO (ethylene oxide) and autoclave sterilizable for repeat usage. Fluoropolymer tubing is considered a highly flexible tube but the properties of PTFE Tubing allow for it to have the best flex life out of all Fluoropolymers.

PTFE Tubing is produce with 3 different wall sizes : Standard Wall , Thin Wall and Light Wall ( or Lightweight Wall )

PTFE temperature range : -454° F (–270° C) to 500° F (260° C)

PTFE offers excellent chemical and electrical product protection.

Biocompatible – USP Class VI approved & FDA compliant

Excellent crack & stress-resistance

UL-224 Certified

PTFE Fluoropolymer Sleeving and Tubing

PTFE tubing by Tef Cap has a combination of mechanical, electrical chemical and thermal properties that are unmatched ny any other material or tubing. PTFE ” Spaghetti ” Tubing is regarded as the ultimate in heat resistance, with an upper service temperature of 500° F, it is chemically inert, VW-1 rated and has constant dielectric properties throughout all frequences.

PTFE Tubing is manufactured from 100 % virgin PTFE resins and is available in 10 basic colors. Stocked in Natural. Available in Black, Brown, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Violet, Gray and White. Pantone color matching is also available.

 

Secondary Processes provided by Tef Cap

Precision cutting is available in order to provide clean, square ends as well as the ability to hold tight tolerances. Etching Fluoropolymer is also available for applications that require bonding.
