ETFE Tubing

ETFE Tubing

 

(Ethylene TetraFluoroEthylene)

ETFE tubing lends itself very well to high pressure applications in much the same way as PEEK tubing. Coupled with its broad chemical resistance and regulatory compliance, ETFE tubing can be used effectively in highly sensitive instrumentation used for precise gas and liquid analysis in the life sciences sector.

By retaining impressive mechanical performance and corrosion resistance up to its maximum working temperature, ETFE can be used for industrial chemical processing pipework where its robust, abrasion resistant qualities are utilised.

Key Features of ETFE Tubing:

  • Serviceable from -100°C (-150°F) to 150°C (302°F)
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Excellent crush & kink resistance
  • Superb stress crack resistance
  • UL 94 V-O flammability rating
  • Excellent weathering performance
  • FDA conforming & USP Class VI compliant
  • Easily thermoformed
  • Ideal for high pressure applications

Availability of ETFE Tubing:

  • Long continuous lengths on spools or in coils
  • Straight cut ‘sticks’
  • Pigmentations, striped or solid



Although the size range below satisfies most applications, many more sizes and custom dimensions are possible to suit your specific needs.
