What is Teflon hose?

Teflon hose is a special pipe made of PTFE material after extrusion and other processes. Due to its perfect performance, Teflon is called the “King of Plastics”. It widely serves in machinery, automobile, aerospace, military, etc. Besides, it is a good choice for hydraulic system. While the typical one is SAE R14 hydraulic hose.

Product features of Teflon hose

1. High chemical stability. Can withstand all strong acids, including aqua regia, hydrofluoric acid, concentrated hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, fuming sulfuric acid, organic acids, etc., strong alkalis, strong oxidants, reducing agents and various organic solvents. . Very suitable for feeding high purity chemicals.

2. Low friction coefficient: The friction coefficient is generally only 0.04. It is a very excellent self-lubricating material. And the friction coefficient does not change with changes in temp.

3. Excellent anti-adhesion, colloids and chemicals are not easily adhered to the inner wall of the tube.

4. Excellent aging resistance, can be used outdoors for a long time.

5. Excellent insulation property. PTFE is a highly non-polar material with good dielectric property and high resistance. Besides, it has a dielectric constant of about 2.0. While it is smaller among all insulating materials.

6. Some tubes is clear, making it easy to observe the internal fluid.

PTFE hose is widely used as temp, corrosion resistant and insulating material in atomic energy, national defense, aerospace, electronics, chemical, machinery,, textile, medical, food, etc.

Teflon material has been widely used due to its excellent property since its birth. Nowadays, it has become one of the more common materials in various fields.
