Smooth bore Teflon hose has been the universal problem solver of industry for many decades. Through a
process known as cold head extrusion, tetrafluoroethylene powder is transformed into a smooth tube of PTFE.
Only the finest Dupont T62 is used to manufacture the best quality PTFE tubing in the
industry. State-of-the-art quality control methods, meticulous attention to every foot of hose and proprietary processes unique to the industry make this PTFE hose product the very best in the world.
This hose is widely specified for an endless variety of applications including automotive, food processing, pharmaceutical, chemical and petrochemical. It can be found in factories, on trucks and buses, automobiles on and off road, in laboratories,
in endless manufacturing situations; anywhere that the limitations of rubber, metal and synthetic hoses make
PTFE hose the only solution.
Some applications require a conductive inner liner to dissipate static electrical charges. High resistivity fluids
or gases at high velocity cause positive electrical chargesto build on the inside of the PTFE liner. If not dissipated
to the end of the hose, the charge will build until it arcs through the tube wall to the braid, causing catastrophic
hose failure. To alleviate this, a thin conductive liner on the ID PTFE tube is used.
DuPont™ Hytrel® Black outer jacket / coating combines the flexibility of rubber with the strength and processability of thermoplastics. Hytrel® thermoplastic elastomer resin can flex in multiple directions, cycle after cycle, long after rubber would break. A prime example is the Constant Velocity Joint (CVJ) boot, an automotive component that is subject to an average of 150,000 miles of pounding, and a wide range of temperatures. Hytrel® provides supperior abrasion and chemical / solvent / gas resistance and is easy to clean.
