What is PTFE? Polytetrafluoroetheylene is the specific chemical name for Teflon. PFTE is a special product to make industrial hosing from as it does not breakdown with exposure to corrosive acids, even when hot. It does not dissolve due to solvent exposure; does not become fragile and breakable when exposed to extreme cold (ex: -240 degrees Celsius).
As a stable polymer, it is the perfect polymer – with its slippery feel – to transfer products whether liquid or solid through. With smoothbore PTFE, convoluted-ss braided PTFE, as well as rubber-covered PTFE available in stock, we can meet just about any of your PTFE needs. Call J.W.
