According to Parker TexLoc, its Texfluor™ polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) tubing is not only the most chemical- and corrosive-resistant tubing, but it also grants:
- A high resistance to the most highly corrosive chemicals, such as aqua regina, hydrofluoric acid and hydrogen peroxide, just to name a few.
- An optimal alternative to replacing glass, rubber and stainless steel because of its corrosion resistance.
- An odorless, tasteless, non-wetting, non-leaching and easy-to-clean profile.
- Resistance to extreme heat and cold, as well as to ultraviolet rays.
- Optimal vibration-damping properties — at both sonic and ultrasonic frequencies — in addition to anti-stick properties.
- No swelling or dissolving at temperatures below 300°C/570°F, although at temperatures above 327°C/620°F (PTFE’s crystalline melting point), some fluorinated lubricating oils can swell PTFE.
- Outer diameters from 0.010 up to 4 inches.
