Zeus PTFE light wall tubing is a fluoropolymer component effectively serving applications in demanding environments. This strong, translucent, lightweight and flexible tubing has a high dielectric strength over a wide range of frequencies. PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) has the lowest coefficient of friction of all polymers making it an ideal choice for applications needing lubricious material. This tubing's biocompatibility, precision tolerances and resistance to extreme temperatures and volatile chemicals allow for applications in a variety of industries. PTFE, also known as Teflon®, is chemically inert, has low extractables and is chemically resistant to acids, bases and all common solvents. This tubing is resistant in the temperature range of 500°F (260°C) to -454°F (-270°C). The melting point is between 635-650°F, the tensile strength is between 2,500-4,000 psi and the specific gravity is between 2.13-2.24. Please refer to the chart below for other size specifications for this PTFE extruded tubing. This tubing can be EtO sterilized and autoclaved.
