Markets & Applications

Teflon Applications

AeroSpace

Reducing friction and being able to withstand elevated temperatures make PTFE Tubing a great asset for the Aerospace Industry. Fluoropolymer Tubing can be found in areas such as complicated wire harnesses, engine compartments and all throughout the fuselage of the aircrafts main body. Fluoropolymers reduce weight without compromising integrity and safety of parts.

Automotive

Produced mainly for the printing and roller manufacturers FEP roll covers offer a truly non stick surface that helps eliminate starch and debris build up. Roll covers are a critical item often found on laminating machines using hot glue and dryer cans in paper mills. Roll Covers are easy to apply and save down time which helps increase production and lowers costs.

Electrical

Fluoropolymer Tubing acts as a high temperature, light weight insulation in applications where other plastics fail. Working temperatures of up to 500° F PTFE Tubing has a flame rating of UL-94 V0 and has a limiting oxygen index greater than 95.

Fiber Optics

With one of the lowest coefficients of friction among polymers, PTFE Tubing helps aid in the installation and protection of fiber optics. Reducing the drag or friction of fiber optics allows for easy install when threading small fibers and making fiber optic bundles. Optical lines can also be coated with PEEK which will help with abrasion resistance and increase the rigidity of the fiber optics.

Food Processing

Fluoropolymer Tubing is produced from FDA compliant resins and can be used in food and potable water applications. Components that adhere to resin specification 21 CFR 177.1550 are allowed to be in direct contact with meat or poultry food products prepared under Federal inspection. Fluoropolymers also follow the strict guide lines of the ” 3-A Sanitary Standards for Multiple-Use Plastic ”
FEP Tubing can also be manufactured into retractable coils for water dispensing applications.

 

Fluid Handling

High temperature ratings and chemically inert FEP, PFA and PTFE Tubing allow for safe transport of corrosive chemicals and acids. With a non stick and non leaching surface Fluoropolymer Tubing helps eliminate the dangers of pumping fluids from barrels.

Medical

PTFE tubing is an ideal Fluoropolymer for the medical industry because of its limitless possibilities. Manufactured for Biocompatibility and certified USP Class VI material PTFE Tubing is a key component in catheters and surgical instruments.  Chemically resistant to all common solvents and acids medical instruments encapsulated in PTFE can be sterilized via ETO or autoclave, without damaging delicate instruments or the tubing.

Pulp & Paper Industry

Produced mainly for the printing and roller manufacturers FEP roll covers offer a truly non stick surface that helps eliminate starch and debris build up. Roll covers are a critical item often found on laminating machines using hot glue and dryer cans in paper mills. Roll Covers are easy to apply and save down time which helps increase production and lowers costs.
