Numerous Applications of PTFE Tubes


Introduction The majority of industries like the steel Industry and chemical processing industry have been consistently utilizing pipes made of fluoropolymers and is made of materials like PTFE and hoses for many years for carrying highly reactive or corrosive chemicals. The popularity of these pipes is on the rise because of its properties and it is fast replacing the pipes made of carbon and other metals.


The Properties of PTFE Tubes The PTFE tube properties are different from another kind of pipes and it is its unique properties which set it apart from carbon and the metal pipes. Thermal properties- PTFE tubing can withstand temperatures up to 680 °F for a short duration under cryogenic conditions; PTFE tubes does not change even at high temperatures like 500 degrees Fahrenheit and can withstand cold temperatures down to -320 °F. Electrical properties- PTFE tubing has great electrical properties as it is a great insulator and a great surface resistivity. UV resistance and wearability- PTFE tubing has excellent UV resistance and wearability. Wear and Friction Qualities- PTFE tubing has a relatively slippery and smooth surface, so it also has a great wear and frictional qualities.


Application of PTFE Tubes The success of PTFE tubing is chiefly because of its unique properties and it is used in a wide number of industries. The PTFE uses and Properties are as follows: In automotive applications, the property of PTFE to withstand temperatures in excess of 250oC makes it an ideal tube for high-temperature fluid transfer and hence is a ready reckoner for PTFE tube suppliers. In medical applications, PTFE tubing is much in demand due to its lubricity and chemical inertness. The use of catheters employing PTFE Tubing as it can be inserted into the human body without fear of thinking it will affect the health of the patient. In chemical applications, it can be used in laboratories and can replace the use of glass tubes mainly because it is inert and very durable and hence a favorite with PTFE tube manufacturers.


In electrical applications, the very effective dielectric properties of PTFE tubing make it very suitable for insulating high voltage cables. The versatility of PTFE tubes has upped its popularity in the recent years and there seems to be little chance of its popularity waning out anytime soon. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a high molecular polymer that is used in abundance in cable and tubing industry chiefly because of its electrical properties, chemical inertness, and high-temperature resistance. The use of this material is on the rise especially in the manufacturing and industrial sectors mainly because of the specific properties of the particular polymer. There is a reason why the PTFE abrasion resistant tubes are being appreciated across the world; certain unique properties are setting it apart from another similar kind of tubes. These qualities make it an ideal choice for a wide number of industries. More and more industries are waking up to the huge number of benefits of the PTFE tubing, and it goes without saying that PTFE tubes are here to stay.
