Literature and Additional Information
FEP Plastic Tubing OverviewFEP tubing material is a transparent thermoplastic tubing product that exhibits several unique features that allow it to be used in industries throughout the world. FEP tubing is designed with enhanced chemical resistance, advanced gas and vapor permeability properties and excellent UV transmission ratings. Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene tubing also provides increased clarity over PTFE with a higher coefficient of friction and lower continuous service temperature.
Freelin-Wade FEP Plastic Tubing Additional FeaturesFEP tubing from Freelin-Wade is available in a wide variety of packaged lengths. Some of the distinctive features that FEP plastic tubing displays include:
- 100% virgin-grade, high-performance resins designed to resist stress cracking
- High thermal stability
- Superior electrical insulation properties
- Chemically inert to most industrial chemicals and solvents
Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene Tubing Advantages
FEP Tubing as a Safe, Economical Alternative to Teflon Tubing
When you’re looking for a combination of high heat resistance, chemical resistance, and affordability, Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) is an ideal choice option that offers an abundance of benefits. FEP tubing is a more cost-effective alternative to Teflon tubing and can be made into self-retracting coils. FEP tubing has almost no moisture absorption, making it easy to clean for food contact applications and other uses requiring regulated, mission-critical tubing. Freelin-Wade’s FEP tubing features a wide temperature range for use in harsh environments where you may have never considered plastic tubing before. Additionally, FEP tubing’s flexibility and compatibility with various push-to-connect fittings makes it easy to install.
