High Performance Heat Shrinkable and Extruded Fluoropolymer Tubing
Tef Cap Industries designs, manufactures & markets precision high temperature, chemical resistant Fluoropolymer Products such as Extruded & Heat Shrinkable Teflon PTFE, FEP & PFA Tubing & Sleeves. Specializing in FEP Probe Cover’s for complete protection. Tef Cap offers a range of secondary application for services and product installation for applications in the Fiber Optics, Medical, Fluid Handling, Water Treatment, Semiconductor and Aerospace Industries. All Products are manufactured using 100% virgin grade high performance PTFE, FEP, PFA, UHP PFA, PVDF, MFA, ETFE & ECTFE resins that are FDA Compliant and USP Class VI approved.
Polytetrafluoroethylene or Teflon PTFE tubing is the first and most common of the fluoropolymer products. Spaghetti tubing, or small-diameter PTFE tubing manufactured to AWG (American Wire Gauge) sizes, has the widest range of applications thanks to its high service temperature, superior chemical resistance, and insulating properties. With a clean smoothbore interior PTFE Tubing AWG or extruded PTFE tubing, you get a restriction-free flow. Tubing manufactured from PTFE resins has a low permeability to gases and liquids. PTFE is almost completely inert to chemical attack, but under special conditions, it can be affected by such substances as alkali metals and halogens. PTFE is a solid fluorocarbon and has a very high molecular weight that consists soly of carbon and fluorine. PTFE Tubing is hydrophobic which means water nor any water containing substances can wet the surface of PTFE.
Convoluted PTFE Tubing ( SAE-AS81914/1, AMS-T-81914/1 or M81914/1 ) is engineered to be an equivalent to that of Corrugated FEP Tubing where sharp turns and small bend diameters are needed. It can be used as an electrical or fluid conduit in the semiconductor industry. PTFE Convoluted Tubing will operate in applications where high temperatures are required and other materials are not suitable. Aerospace Industry often utilize the properties of PTFE Tubing for wire harness and cable protection in production and maintenance of engines. PTFE and FEP Tubing and resins are FDA approved materials and can also be used in food and medical industry.
Tef-Cap offers a number of excellent heat-shrink PTFE tubing products suitable for a variety of applications. Our clear heat-shrink PTFE tubing is the ideal solution for industries such as automotive, aerospace, fiber optics, food, and medical, just to name a few. Teflon PTFE tubing resists corrosion, reduces weight, creates nonstick surfaces, and reduces abrasion. Our high-temperature heat-shrink tubing also meets all FDA sanitary plastic standards.
FEP 1.3:1 Heat Shrink Tubing (Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene) is a high temperature, chemical resistant Fluoropolymer tube designed to have a lower shrink temperature than PTFE, but greater flexibility, optical clarity and excellent release properties. FEP Heat Shrink is a common alternative to the higher rated PTFE resins which require 624°F in order to start shrinking. Heat Shrink products made from FEP resins generally can handle temperatures ranging from Cryogenic up to 400°F, but can do so while still keeping an FDA rating on all food contact applications.
Heat Shrink Teflon FEP Roll Covers are specifically engineered to extend roller life and to eliminate roller build-up and picking. Shrinkable FEP Roll Covers are manufactured using a seamless FEP Tube and are used in a wide spectrum of industries, including textile, packing, printing, paper, photographic and food processing.
Manufactured form high temperature chemically resistant Fluoropolymer Tubing, FEP Probe Covers are designed to withstand the harshest environments. Tef Cap Industries produces a clear Heat Shrinkable FEP sleeve that is designed to slip over the outer diameter of most standard thermocouples and probes and when shrunk into place provides an almost impenetrable barrier between caustic fluids and costly instruments. Tef Cap’s method of sealing Shrinkable FEP Tubing results in a smooth, round, conforming, pinhole-free seal.
