PTFE Tubing

PTFE tubing is widely used for:

  • Wire harness applications
  • Fuel hoses/fuel tubing lines
  • Pharmaceutical applications
  • Advanced medical devices
  • High temperature industrial equipment
  • Chemical and analytical science applications
  • 3D printing equipment

Performance characteristics:

  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Wide temperature range from 500°F (260°C) to -454°F (–270°C)
  • Chemically resistant (all common solvents, acids and bases)
  • Chemically inert
  • Low extractable
  • Excellent dielectric insulation properties
  • Flame resistant: UL 94 VO
  • Easy to clean




PTFE Tubing

Chemically resistant, low coefficient of friction, with a broad temperature range -454°F to 500°F

PTFE tubing is often the first choice for many advanced applications due to its superior lubricity, temperature and chemical resistance, biocompatibility and precision tolerances. It has an extremely low coefficient of friction and possesses a broad temperature range, allowing it to excel equally in extreme cold and hot environments.

Zeus® PTFE Tubing– is available in a variety of sizes and operating pressures. PTFE tubing is chemically resistant, has a low coefficient of friction, and broad temperature range from 500°F (260°C) to -454°F (–270°C).
