Chemfluor® tubings are made using fluoropolymers under strictly controlled processing conditions.
Chemfluor® fluoropolymer tubings have outstanding chemical and physical properties and can be used in a broad range of temperatures, from -400°F to 500°F, depending on the polymer type. Chemfluor® tubings are available in a variety of different polymer types including FEP, PFA and PTFE. The primary differences among them are use temperature, clarity and mechanical strength, while several chemical and physical properties are common to all. No plasticizers, stabilizers or fillers are used, so they are pure and non- contaminating. Unlike metal and rubber alternatives, Chemfluor® tubings are non-corroding and non- oxidizing. Unlike other plastic materials, they are unaffected by solvents, acids and fuels.
Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics' careful selection of resin type, particle size, temperature and pressure produces smooth, non-porous, dimensionally stable tubing. Made out of polytetrafluoroethylene resin, PTFE tubing has the highest working temperature of any fluoropolymer tubing available today. It is widely used as a pressure tubing in general chemical applications such as delivery of natural gas and mineral oils, toxic gas monitoring and paint, varnish or adhesive delivery lines. PTFE tubing also services numerous applications in the automotive, electrical and appliance markets.
