JT&T’s 2 to 1 Thin-Wall PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) Tubing works well in high temperatures & tough environments, is chemical resistant & intended for applications
requiring recognition by military & industrial specifications. UL recognized & RoHS compliant. Meets requirements of SAE-AMS-DTL-23053/12 (formerly MIL-I-23053/12 &
MIL-DTL-23053/12), Class 3. Outstanding chemical & temperature resistance, coupled with fluoropolymers low coefficient of friction, makes PTFE tubing an excellent choice for applications that come in contact with chemicals or extreme temperatures. Resistant to almost all chemicals except: alkali metals in molten state, fluorine gas at high
temperatures & chlorine trifluoride.
PTFE Tubing has the highest shrinking temperature of the three fluoropolymer materials (PTFE, FEP, PFA). You can use a heat gun or torch to shrink PTFE, but it is recommended to pre-heat a large area of the part to be covered & give sufficient time for recovery. The part being covered must be able to withstand the range of temperature & even heating & cooling of all sides will provide the best result. The recovered wall thickness of the tubing is proportional to the degree of recovery.
PTFE Tubing is typically used as a liner inside devices & as a covering for metal components & devices. PTFE tubing has become the gold standard in industries requiring the ultimate in lubricity, high temperature use, chemical resistance, biocompatibility & precision extruded tolerances. Temperature rating for continuous operation from
-73°C (-100°F) to 260°C (500°F). Shrink Ratio is 2 to 1 (shrinks to 1/2 its original diameter). PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) goes into the gel state (amorphous to crystalline)
at approximately 330°C (625°F) & begins to shrink at 350°C (662°F) when held for approximately 10 minutes.
