Parker manufactures PTFE tubing, the highest temperature, chemical and corrosion resistance of all the fluoropolymer tubing available, in standard industrial wall and heavy wall designs along with many custom sizes to application requirements. PTFE tubing is the best in temperature and chemical resistance Parker offers and is used in extreme environments. Within normal use temperatures, fluoropolymers are attacked by so few chemicals, it is easier to describe the exceptions, rather than list the chemicals with which fluoropolymers are compatible. These should never be used; Elemental Sodium, Elemental Potassium, and Elemental Lithium. (These Alkali metals remove fluorine from the polymer molecule) For a list of chemicals that should be used with caution contact your factory representative.

A PTFE tube has a non-stick surface that facilitates flow and eliminates media buildup. In many cases, it is used to replace glass, rubber and stainless steel because of its chemical and corrosion resistance. In equipment applications, the vibration damping properties of PTFE are excellent at both sonic and ultrasonic frequencies.

Standard Series 101 PTFE tubing is natural but it is also available with a conductive I.D. or as a fully conductive tube to reduce static discharge. Parflex customer service can help you with selection for custom designs, sizes or colors.
