Spaghetti Tubing PTFE, FEP, PFA consists of Teflon PTFE tubing (polytetrafluoroethylene). Spaghetti tubing is a term that describes smaller-diameter tubing, just like extruded or smoothbore. Teflon PTFE tubing has the widest range of applications thanks to its high service temperature and superior chemical resistance. PTFE is almost completely inert to chemical attack, but under special conditions, it can be affected by such substances as alkali metals and halogens.
Fluoropolymer tubing is considered a highly flexible tube, but the properties of PTFE tubing allow for it to have the best flex life out of the group. PTFE tubing is available in three different wall thicknesses: standard wall PTFE tubing, thin wall PTFE tubing, and light wall PTFE tubing.
Advantages of Spaghetti Tubing PTFE, FEP, PFA:
- Has the lowest coefficient of friction of all known solid mateirals
- Excellent chemical resistance and electrical product protection
- Temperature range: -454° F (–270° C) to 500° F (260° C)
- Superior release properties
