Polyester mesh is a plastic-like mesh which is better suited for extended use when submerged in water, rather than nylon mesh. While liquids and water can be passed through nylon, polyester has more acid resistance and will last longer, due to its properties. This type of mesh comes in different standard sheet sizes, or you can obtain it in custom-cut sizes to your specifications and applications.
Save Time by Using Custom Cutting Available with Polyester Mesh
One reason to consider having your polyester mesh custom cut is so that each piece is the same size. Cutting the mesh on your own requires you to have the time needed to carefully measure, mark and cut each piece. However, you can eliminate this time when you take advantage of our custom finishing processes. You will also be free to focus on the tasks at hand and not have to worry about having insufficient inventories of mesh available in the sizes you require.
A discovery was made when the Navel Ordinance Laboratory recognized the potential of mixing nickel and titanium wire together. They discovered that this type of wire resulted in two different wire variations, allowing for both shape memory and super elasticity. The resulting product was called NiTinol wire, after the type of metals used to create the wire, and the agency, which discovered it.
NiTinol Wire Can Be Transformed and Returned to Its Original Shape
The difference between regular wire and NiTinol wire is the ability of NiTinol to return to its previous shape. The wire can be bent, angled and deformed without damaging it. In order to return it to its original shape, heat is applied. The amount of heat required depends on the type of NiTinol being used. For instance, super elastic wire only requires a small amount of heat.
PTFE tubing is not the same thing as PTFE heat shrink tubing. Some people get these two products confused and assume they are one and the same. However, there are differences between the two products. Heat shrink tubing is a special type of tubing which shrinks down in size when heat is applied. Regular Teflon tubing is round and solid and does not shrink when heat is applied. Both types have useful applications in a variety of industries.
PTFE Tubing Can Be Used for a Variety of Applications
PTFE tubing can be used in place of other types of insulating materials because of its high heat resistance. It can be used to provide insulation for electrical wiring used on products and materials manufactured in electrical and medical device industries. Teflon tubing is also ideal for situations which require low friction or have biocompatibility requirements.
Polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) is used to make tubing that is resistant to high temperatures, chemicals, or for lubricity. The PTFE tubing from Component Supply Company is made with a light wall in place of a regular wall and also comes in small spools and coils that make it easy to access the variety of sizes needed without a large purchase of each. It can also be cut into specific lengths and hold tight tolerances in order to meet your specific requirements. Choose from extruded or heat shrink tubing made from PTFE.
Various Sizes Available in Heat Shrink and Extruded PTFE Tubing
Extruded PTFE tubing is available in AWG sizes and can be purchased as PTFE Standard wall tubing, lightweight wall tubing or thin wall tubing. The heat shrink tubing made from PTFE comes in AWG and fractional sizes as PTFE standard well 2:1, thin wall 2:1, lightweight wall 2:1, 4:1 and PTFE-FEP dual shrink-melt tubing. Also available is the PTFE guide wire assembly which includes the 72” length of stainless steel straight wire and 72” length of lightweight well tubing made from PTFE. For applications that require good electrical insulation properties, low friction and biocompatibility requirements, PTFE has the lowest coefficient of friction of any polymer.
