FEP Properties

Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene

Tef Cap’s Thin Wall PTFE Tubing is well suited for a variety of demanding chemical, mechanical, electrical and non-stick surface applications. Conforming to Mil-I-22129, AMS 3655 and ASTM-D-3295, PTFE Tubing is rated for continuous operations from -70°C to +260°C (500°F) and will always remain flexible. Polytetrafluoroethylene is resistant to wicking, moisture absorption and contamination in harsh environments. PTFE tubing is non-toxic and will not burn in normal atmosphere at any temperature, and is chemically inert to all lubricants, solvents and reagents. Its electrical performance is excellent, offering extremely high dielectric strength and protection.
