EXCELLENT CHEMICAL RESISTANCE
PTFE is one of the most chemically resistant substances known. similar To ceramics. It will chemically resist virtually all gaseous and ﬂuid corrosives, and is totally unaffected chemically by all acids, alkalis, solvents, fuel oils, detergents and food stuffs except molten alkalai and flouride compounds.
Excellent temperature stability between —73″C + 260°C.
Resistance To OZONE, U. V. Rays and Oxidation.
LONG SERVICE LIFE
The ﬂexibility of PTFE hose remains constant, even after long and continuous use at high Temperatures. Since the hose is also relatively unaffected by chemicals, the service life of the hose is usually longer than that of other types of rubber or plastic hose. Greater reliability and reduced maintenance costs can therefore be expected.
Hose easily cleaned To maintain batch purity, when using one hose for several services. Efficient, clean transfer through the hose is achieved without any material becoming trapped as it passes through the hose bore internal bacteria traps are therefore avoided due to this non—stick nature of PTFE.
Suitable for food stuff conduits as Teflon is physiologically unobjectionable and no transfer of taste or colour
Resistance to enzymatic and microbiological attack, does not contain addictive which may provide a substrate for fungal or bacterial growth.
