Tefzel may swell when used with organic solvents, and in that case operating pressures should be restricted to under 70 bar . Ethylene Tetrafluoroethylene is much more abrasion resistant than PTFE. Tefzel Tubing delivers enhanced pressure-holding capabilities and continuous mechanical stability.
Many companies specifically invest in these kinds of tubes due to their high level of tolerance. You can often locate them as industrial harnesses and in different kinds of projects for their chemically resistant properties. ETFE tubing has some outstanding properties which makes it particularly suitable for HPLC since it has a higher burst pressure when compared to PTFE. It is important to note that when using ETFE with organic solvents it may swell and will reduce the max. It is the ideal polymer for applications with chloride salts, which typically corrode stainless steel.
It further analyzes the past and the current performance of this market and makes future projections based on these assessments. It also evaluates this market from the perspective of the existing market chain, using the data about the import and export and the sales dynamics of the products available in this market across the world. The global ETFE market report has conducted extensive research studies to investigate investment outcomes for the market participants. ETFE research report provides the most comprehensive evaluation, and advanced industrial inputs from business professionals who are leaders in the field of ETFE market. The report evaluates new product launches, anticipates and prevents high-risk businesses.
As such, this tubing is often used for medical purposes, nuclear fields, and aircraft applications. Higher Pressure Rating –ETFE’s exceptional mechanical properties gives ETFE tubing a higher pressure rating than many other fluoropolymers. Multi-Lumen – Our Multi-Lumen tubing contains numerous lumens, or “passages,” forming multiple working channels that run the length of the tubing. These channels allow multiple instruments, guide wires , or fluids to be passed through the tube but contained within a single outside diameter tubing. Multi-lumen tubing is widely used in medical devices such as catheters as well as in electronic devices and fluid handling applications. Zeus multi-lumen tubing is made with tight tolerance capabilities and the highest quality standards.
Sub-Lite-Wall® – This ETFE ultra-thin walled heat shrink has been developed specially to minimize thickness where thickness is of critical importance such as in catheter design and fiber optics coatings. ETFE’s Sub-Lite-Wall® heat shrink is sterilizable for biomedical applications to encapsulate probes, meters, and other tools. Our ETFE heat shrink has a low heat shrink recovery temperature compared to many other polymer heat shrinks allowing it to be used in many more applications. Heat Shrink– ETFE heat shrink has broad applications ranging from covering and protecting critical components in harsh working environments to wire splicing. ETFE’s lower recovery temperature of 360 ºF (185 ºC) to 420 ºF (215 ºC), its temperature tolerance, and its chemical resistance make this heat shrink a primary option for component and wire encapsulation.
