ETFE Tubing

About ETFE Tubing

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 (Ethylene TetraFluoroEthylene) can be used for industrial chemical processing pipework where its robust, abrasion resistant qualities are utilised.
